12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. freshness date clearly marked.
appearance is decent, dark brown in color with ruby highlights and very little head despite a heavy pour. a few spots of lace here and there but not much.
smell is nutty and a little bit earthy with maybe some coffee in there. hops are barely detectable.
taste is of roasted malts with a some carmel and little dark chocolate that doesn't sink in til later. hop character is mild at best, with only a hint of bitterness in the finish. if it weren't for the strong roasted character i'd almost think this was an english brown ale.
body is a little thin for an oatmeal stout, but it still has the smoothness. carbonation feels a little too heavy for this style i think.
this beer goes down pretty easy. considering that plus it's lighter body and low abv i'd say this is clearly a session beer. i'd certainly buy this again, i just wouldn't get too excited about it.
