pours from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass. Deep black color this tan head of about 1 in. that stick around... and around .... and around... still there....
smell is of oats and malty sweetness... very odd to smell oat to me.... always thought of it as a taste and mouth-feel character. slight ginger bread aroma. no real hop presence.
sweet malt followed by coffee and chocolate flavors... then a warming alcohol taste and then some bitter pine like hops. some oat flavor in the beginning but rather light compared to what the aroma would lead you to believe... good taste
mouth feel is thick and creamy like a stout should be... higher carbonation for a stout i thought as well.
Overall a great beer.... Thanks to HippityHop24 for the trade... CHEERS!!!

Pours a dark jet black. No head, just the thinnest tan ring around the edge. No lacing.
Smells like booze. Minimal other aromas, maybe a hint of roasted malt and sweetness.
Taste is super thin, watery, mild sweetness, molasses and alcohol. Nothing lingers. Really disappointing. As it warms it get bigger and has some chocolate and coffee flavors, but still unusually thin and watery.
Thin mouthfeel. Very watery, alcohol is prevalent but not something that gets in the way.
Big let down. Maybe the most watery stout ever. Not much flavor either. I don't get what went wrong here. I sipped it, tasted little. Let it warm to room temp and still got a watery, boozy miss that only got a hair more flavor and body...
Serving type: on-tap
