Lake Superior Beer
Lake Superior Oatmeal Stout

Brewer: The Lake Superior Brewing Company, LLC
Origin: Duluth, MN

As oatmeal stouts go, I generally like them. They do seem to be more filling than other stouts and while not necessarily for breakfast anymore, oatmeal tends to even out the flavor of stouts to me. I just finished a Lake Superior Sir Duluth Oatmeal Stout. It is very dark in color, almost black, yet its flavor is quite smooth. Not harsh in the least and you can smell the chocolate undertones through the nose as you lift the stein to your lips. As for taste, well you can taste the dark chocolate and even a mild smoky flavor. Carbonation is medium for a stout; more than a Guinness, but less than some others. This is one of the best stouts I’ve had recently. It’s got good body, good flavor and good all-around character. Lake Superior did well with this oatmeal brew. I rate it…
