For this stout, we used a high ratio of oats (23%) in the mash to create a smooth and full mouthfeel. We added pure maple syrup from Sawtooth Mountain to the kettle for flavor as well as some lactose to ensure a smooth and slightly sweet finish. We used just enough Herkules hops to balance out the intense malt character and finished it with 1#/BBL of Fika Dark Roast Coffee cold steeped in the fermenter. The result is a very complex stout with notes of chocolate, coffee, and maple that has a luxurious mouthfeel and a slightly sweet finish. But wait, there's more. We aged some in Bourbon barrels for nearly a year. Holy. Moly.
