Lone Peak Brewery Hippy Highway Oatmeal Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Lone Peak Brewery Hippy Highway Oatmeal Stout.
From the Lone Peak Brewery website: “Hippy Highway Oatmeal Stout is a robust, deep black ale. this beer is chock full of six different imported English malts and 10% flacked oats that give it a rich mouth-full.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours black with a thin cocoa colored head and a little lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malts, chocolate and light caramel, toffee and coffee scents.
Taste: Bitter dark chocolate, roasted malts and coffee – just a touch of sweetness.
Overall: Creamy and complex, Lone Peak Brewery Hippy Highway Oatmeal Stout is a well-executed Oatmeal Stout. This 5.5% ABV offering is nicely balanced and very drinkable. I’d certainly recommend this to fans of the style.
