Trader Joe's Stockyard Oatmeal Stout
Trader Joe’s Stockyard Oatmeal Stout. The beer pours a black color with a frothy tan colored head that leaves a bit of a lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of chocolate, cardboard, warehouse (weird), and toasted malts. The taste has dark chocolate and is a little bitter with toasted malts. There is a bit of a cardboard flavor before a coffee accents comes out on the tongue. The alcohol content is 5.2% ABV. I can’t say I was a huge fan of this beer. I was surprised that it smelled like the warehouse that it came from, and had hints of cardboard.
