A first one-off release to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Celebrator Beer News, this Russian Imperial Oatmeal Stout is packed with flavors ranging from chocolate, to licorice to coffee to caramel and dried dark fruits.

“The oatmeal rounds out the mouthfeel, and it’s 10% alcohol by volume contributes a nice warm finish,” said Arne Johnson, the Brewmaster at Marin Brewing. He added the beer’s name comes from the use of flaked oats used in the brewing process.
