A Stout I Actually Like

          I love beer. I really love beer. I’m no beer connoisseur by any means, but I know what I like and what I don’t like. I don’t go around looking for a hint of this or a drop of that. I just drink it and either love or hate the taste. I tend to stick to Ales, Hefeweizen, and every now and then the fruit based beers. I normally stay away from the IPAs and Stouts.

          I wrapped up a video interview at Hattiloo Theater and had a little time before I needed to get home. So I ran across the street to The Second Line, which is a super dope place to eat, and got a quick beer. I checked what they had on tap and the bartender recommended High Cotton Brewery seasonal brew, Christmas Oatmeal Stout.  

Choices, choices

Choices, choices

           I’ve had an oatmeal stout before and it was horrible. I vowed to never try another, but this day I was in the good mood. That and I’m still in Christmas mode and it’s freaking got Christmas in the name! I’m a pretty basic man!

           I can’t lie, I really enjoyed it. It’s not as thick as the last oatmeal stout I had. This one actually tasted very good. Kudos High Cotton. Y’all did the damn thing. I’m not sure how long this brew will be available since it’s a seasonal, but go grab a pint and tell me what you think. If you don’t like it, let me know why.
