  1. Thanks much for the update. Had to be there to find that out.

    From our look at this Stout back in July:

    "Oatmeal Stout – Also freshly on tap. It starts full and creamy and finishes medium bitter with a light body and quick finish. 6.4%. It gives the best of a full-bodied stout and leaves you feeling like you just had a sip of Vienna Amber. Dan's calling it the best beer Liz has ever made and he might be right."
