4.03/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours an opaque black, with slightly visible brown outer-hues when in the right lighting. Has a healthy, frothy, tan three-finger foam-head which disappears after a while, leaving decent lacing behind.
Smell: Mellow on the nose. Sweet, Earthy hopps with notable molasses and dark roasted malt. A hint of coffee.
Taste: Right off the bat I get a gust of twangy hoppiness, followed by a sweet, roasted malt flavor. Oats/grain with dark chocolate and coffee undertones. Has a dry, bitter-sweet finish that lingers.
Mouthfeel: A slick, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied with a sharp, prickly carbonation tingle.
Drinkability: Better than good drinkability.
Overall: This was quite the treat. I am a fan of Outmeal Stout, and this is one that I would certainly recommend.
Serving type: bottle
