Three Floyds / Mikkeller Oatgoop (Havregoop)

The second collaboration from Mikkeller and Three Floyds, following up on the Hvedegoop that was released during 2008 Dark Lord Day at the brewery. Instead of a wheat wine, this round they produced an "oat wine" with the malt bill being predominantly comprised of oats and clocking in at 10.4% ABV.
Onto the review:



22oz bomber. The second collaboration with Mikkeller pours into my glass a deep, vibrant red/orange with a creamy inch of off white foam on top leaving trails of sticky lace. Aromas start with big resinous citric hops. Pine moves in as well with a touch of tropical fruit and herbal swirls. Caramel and toffee dominates the big malt background with an almost candy like sweetness to it as well.

First sip brings an upfront blast of bold citric hops cavorting with a slick, smooth caramel malt that has accents of toffee as well. The oats come through quite prominently as it rolls down along with a mix of pine and tropical fruit flavors. Big bitterness hits on the way down. Floral, grassy and herbal on the finish with a mild lingering sweetness and really no hint of the alcohol. Oats really smooth this out. Good show.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth and creamy. The quality I call slickness from the oats really shines here making this an incredibly easy drinking beer given the abv. Spot on carbonation as well. I will enjoy the rest of this bottle and I wouldn't mind seeing more examples of oatwine's in the future. Cheers to Three Floyds and Mikkeller. Dial down the alcohol a bit and this would be sessionable!

Overall I gave this brew a rating of Great.
The price point is the real downfall here though at $16.99 a bottle retail.


I was at Three Floyds on 2-7-09 and bottles are still available at the brewpub!
