A big thanks goes out to RJ (Grabbin2nd) for bringing this to the SLO BevMo! Thanks a ton dude!
Split among Wisemen Nick, Zach, and Jorge. Poured into three standard pint glasses.
Appearance: Poured out thick and black, yielding a gorgeous, slow-forming, brown, foamy, head. That head just crawled up from the depths! Retains as a sticky, foamy, crown and drags a lot of lacing. Body is totally opaque. This looks fantastic!
Smell: H U U U G E oats! Awesome! A good deal of dark chocolate and toffee as well. Oats steal the show though. I love it!
Taste: Oats, dark chocolate, caramel, black coffee, leafy hops and even a touch of citrus. Big roastiness, big oatiness. Finishes with bitter dark malts. Very flavorful. My favorite part about this beer (thus far) is that they don't shy away from the oats AT ALL. Oats all over in this one!
Mouthfeel: Robust in flavor and pretty robust in body too. Lots of dark roastiness in this one. Cool and malty with moderate prickly carbonation. Roasty flavors hang around long after the sip.
Drinkability: Loved it! This is the quintessential oat stout. Bold, flavorful, full, and addictive. Can't wait to try this again!
Serving type: bottle
