12oz bottle into a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a pitch-black color. The head is a finger high, and dark tan in shade. Retention is quite excellent, with its creamy shade providing excellent aesthetic appeal. A ring of lacing is left on the glass. (4.25)

Smell: This brings the coffee forward quite well. However, it’s not some one-note coffee bomb: I’m also picking up notes of dark chocolate, roast, and piny hops. The hops and the roast blend together extremely well – I just know this will turn out nicely… (4)

Taste: This is surprisingly hoppy. I’m enjoying the big initial notes of pine, herbs, and grainy oat. Quickly, it transitions into flavors of chocolate and vanilla cream. Coffee remains a subtle suggestion throughout. Further sips balance it out further. Bold and easygoing all at the same time; this one’s a winner. Only flaw is that the coffee is bit too mild for my personal tastes (and really, that isn't much of a flaw...) (4)

Mouthfeel: Unlike a lot of stouts, it’s very dry and almost clean. In fact, it drinks much like an overgrown dry stout. Carbonation is moderately high, creating an additional illusion of lightness. Not once does it become too cloying or heavy on the palate. (4)

Overall: No, it’s not a pure coffee bomb. What it does is mesh coffee, hop, and roast flavors incredibly well. I could easily drink two or three of these in a sitting…shame that’s such a financially unsound idea. (4)

4.01/5: Great oatmeal stout; loving the hop/roast/coffee interplay

for whatever reason, the dominant flavor profile i got out of my sample at dayton's big beer and barleywines was smoke....as in rauchbier -style smokiness. totally unexpected. not necessarily something i'd seek out, but as a try once, it was well worth the sampler...
