Pennsylvania

4.7/5  rDev +4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

This brew pours pure black with a one finger mocha head which dissipates quickly but some remnants of the head remain on the top of the beer until the end. Light lacing.

The smell is burnt malts, burnt coffee, oats and roasted nuts.

The taste is a burnt coffee and burnt malt taste. Then the burn chocolate comes in finishing with some hop bitterness. The tastes hit in succession which makes this brew well balanced over all. Cannot taste or smell the alcohol at all.

The mouthfeel is smooth and silky. There is a little bitterness which comes in at the end.

Overall this is a good breakfast/oatmeal stout. It delivers on the oatmeal and the chocolate. It would be better if the burnt taste was toned down just a bit but I am not really complaining.
