Day 363 Drink: Boulder Obovoid Oak-Aged Oatmeal Stout
Boulder Beer was the first of the modern wave of microbreweries in Colorado when it was founded in a former goat shed in 1979. From 1990 to 1993 the company changed its name to Rockies Brewing Co., before changing back to the Boulder name.
Boulder Obovoid Oak-Aged Oatmeal Stout is a 6.8 percvent alcohol by volume beer. It pours a dark brown with a slight tan head. The aroma has a slight cocoa note. The flavor has a creamy body, hints of vanilla and some roasted grains. Not a huge stout, but good amounts of flavor.
