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

The cork nearly popped off on its own when I took the muselet off. Pours black with a several fingers thick, frothy brown head. Smells of cocoa, dark roast malts and some coffee with maybe a light floral hop scent. Dark chocolate and roast coffee emerged as it warmed up. Tastes of coffee, dark chocolate and cocoa powder, sweet malts, moderate hop sweetness fading to piney. The medium to heavy body itself was excellent but it was very heavily carbonated which took away from the flavor and feel, not sure if it is always like that or just this batch. Flavor and smell really popped once the beer warmed and the carbonation dissipated. Left with pine resin on the palate and lips as well as a lingering dark roast flavor. Despite the heavy carbonation it was still an excellent beer.
