Day 56 Drink: Oakshire Overcast Espresso Stout

Oakshire Brewing in Eugene, Ore., makes some award winning brews, including Overcast Oatmeal Stout. With the help of organic coffee from Wandering Goat Coffee Co. and a 13-hour cold water steeping process, the beer becomes Oakshire Overcast Espresso Stout.

Oakshire Brewer Matt Van Wyk notes that "People's palates are becoming more and more accustomed to fuller-flavored beers. And there is a group of people out there who want more flavor, but are not necessarily hop heads."

Oakshire Overcast Espresso Stout has plenty of coffee aroma and the java just keeps coming through in abundance in the flavor profile. A rich and rewarding stout. If you love coffee beers, look for this one.
