Poured into a pint glass.
Dark, really dark pour. Near pitch black, but with a bit of translucence when shined through like giving a garnet hue. Head is mocha, with a good few fingers of head. Lacing is nice, leaving a clear trail. Nice.
Buttery smell with a burnt character, lacking though, but a mild coffee character. Mild sweetness and earthy tones.
Roasted malt goodness delivers with a smoothness that can't be beat. Oatmeal does justice here, as the roasted malts are smoothed over, providing a very refreshing stout. Sweetness is there, but is suppressed by a mild hop profile.
Creamy finish leaves quickly making you want the next sip more and more. Alcohol is nonexistent, and at 5%, you won't feel bad knocking back a few. Awesome
Delicious, a "go to" for me if there is one. hands down a great beer to introduce a non-geek into beer, as this one will get someone off the Guinness bandwagon in a heart beat.
