This is an excellent beer, better than some oatmeal brews at higher prices. Recommended.

This beer is a product of Josephs Brau (Trader Joe’s) but was actually brewed by Gordon Biersch. Prior to this, it was brewed by Goose Island.

From the brewery:

"Stockyard is a meticulously crafted stout, positively brimming with oats, chocolate and roasted malt flavors. This is a hearty, creamy stout in the Irish tradition, with a deep, dark color and rich, tan head. Its chocolate, roasted oats and coffee flavors make it incredibly smooth and just a touch sweet. It's an excellent match for our Huntsman Cheese or pretty much anything made with dark chocolate. We'll also confess that it's quite delicious on its own."
