Beer | Crabtree Brewery Oatmeal Stout

Another sublime pack of four canned pints from Crabtree Brewery in Greeley, Colo. This stuff is sort of like drinking chocolate covered velvet drapes. Maybe that doesn’t sound like a heartfelt recommendation, but we were quickly swept up in the majesty of the coffee-and-cacao nose on this and were washed on down the rabbit-hole by the smooth finish. Chocolate drapes is where we ended up. No complaints here. Well, one silly gripe: We will be happier when Crabtree starts printing their labels directly on the cans rather than shrink-wrapping them in place—they make funny sounds when we crush them against our foreheads.

Label shot after the jump…
