Some weeks ago, I was about to enjoy a "Coffee Stout" made by New Glarus Brewery. I took a moment to actually READ the information that Dan, the brewmaster, put on the label. His suggestion was to drink it at a cool room temperature. So I did that...and it was richly delicious. So, I thought I'd try that with one of my homebrewed Oatmeal Stouts and one of my homebrewed Deception Cream Stouts. Oh, my goodness! What an amazing difference the warmer temp made!
Now, if I'm going to have a stout of any persuasion, I will NOT put it in the refrigerator!
