3.93/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a pint glass.
A - pours a slightly inky black with a two and a half finger medium brown head. The head is very very frothy. Provides a good amount of lacing.
S - dominated but piney hops. Coffee is fairly surpressed and in the background more than the other breakfasts. Bakers chocolate.
T - very hop forward - the hoppiness reminds me slightly of FFF Black Sun. Mostly piney hops. Dark chocolate. Roasty. A slightly drying malt profile in the mid and late palate - maybe some biscuit malt? A slightly coarse bitterness on the tail end.
M - fairly dry. Drier than I would expect with oats. Not silky and slick at all.
D - medium. It's tastes really good but the large quantity of hops paired with the bitterness keeps it a nice sipper.
Overall a very nice hoppy stout that tastes really good. I can't find much to complain about, but there's nothig that makes it a really memorable beer - just a good solid beer.
