22oz bottle poured into an oversized snifter. Didn’t find a bottled date.
A: Poured smooth and creamy. One finger of gorgeous chocolatey brown head sits on top of a thick black body.
S: Wonderful milk chocolate and some nice roastiness. Some grassy English-style hops are also present.
T: The chocolate and roasted malt from the aroma are all there in the flavor. The hops are there but no more than I prefer. There is a little bit of bitterness. It all plays extremely well together. Terrific.
M: So smooth and easy to drink. Full bodied and creamy. Slight chalkiness on the finish.
O: An awesome example of the style. This has everything I want in an oatmeal stout. Smooth as silk, well-balanced roast and chocolate.
Serving type: bottle
