I was surprised to learn the Figure Eight has been around since 2010.
This beer does not taste like something that comes from an established and time-tested brewery. My biggest complaint about most new breweries - in the first year - is that they haven't learned how to balance their ingredients with water in larger batches, and it results in many watered down flavors. I've personally gone to a few breweries for their openings, and been unimpressed. Only to go back and try them a year or two later, and be far more impressed with what I previously felt was unbalanced.
This beer claims it is an Oatmeal Stout.
Sadly, it's light and watery, and goes down way too smoothly for a stout. There is no body and heft to flavors. There is a slight stout flavor that passes too quickly. Caitlin did tell me that the beer tasted good after eating her chocolate cake - so I suppose that's something positive.
Sadly, tonight I was just really disappointed in Figure Eight. One day I hope to make it their brewery and try some of their other offerings. Hopefully that can change how un-impressed I am at this moment.
