This beer pours a super dark brown with a beige foamy head that soon after disappears. There is light lacing that are left behind as the beer is swirled around the glass. The smell is of roasted malts and oatmeal with faint chocolate and coffee. Nothing too strong or overpowering. The taste is similar to the smell, but there is a discernible hop taste in this one. The mouthfeel is smooth and somewhat creamy. Carbonation fits this medium bodied stout just right

Overall, this was a pleasant surprise. This is a lighter in taste, balanced stout, with great drinkability. Simple, not very assertive, more on the subtle side, which fits on most days.

On-tap poured into a pilsner. Color is very dark brown to black, little head, very nice lacing. Aroma opens up after you let it sit for a half hour--caramel malt, a bit if coffee and mild hops. Flavor is rich dark roasted malt with coffee, a hint of oatmeal, an mildly bitter hops. Mouthfeel is medium thin and foamy. Overall this is a very good and enjoyable oatmeal stout--one of my favorite styles.d

Damn is this a tough stout to beat. . . So rich, so thick, so packing in flavor. . . And best of yet, so amply priced and easy to find. I'm not even a coffee drinker, yet appreciate so much of the deep notes of it mixed with chocolate and the vanilla notes usually reserved for some of the more nicely done nitro's out there. . .

A truly rich beer for those who don't have to break the bank for it. . . Ninkasi is a brand that puts the Pacific Northwest on the map, and their stout only bolsters their name. . .

Oh my god! this is the best beer I ever tasted. Chocolate and coffee notes give way to ab absolutely heavy mouthfeel. Very little bitterness. This is what I drink every day, I accept no substitute. I always pour it a little fast so the tan head is nice and thick. There is nothing light and watery about this beer!
