Nitro

The Bruery
Placentia, CA

Black in body with a moderately-sized dark brown head. Some nice retention and a bit of cling to the glass, but not as much as other nitro-stouts I'm familiar with. Pretty enough, though relatively standard for a beer of thie style.

Roasted malt and a bit of coffee in the aroma. Simple and straightforward. I don't get any oatmeal or raisin cookie in the aroma. A bit disapointed.

The flavor is very roast-forward with a touch of coffee and some sweetness. Very simple. No raisin or oatmeal, as with the aroma.

Medium bodied, creamy, silky carbonation.

I think the name does this beer no justice--inappropriately named. Leads to certain expectations which simply aren't met. Regardless, this is a straightforward, tasty, very drinkable stout.

On tap at the Bruery, 100 customers, 2-3 dudes working the bar. Long lines.

Beer is black, very thin ring of beige head around it.

If this is a cookie aroma, then these are prune flavored cookies. I did not enjoy the smell. Came in expecting some nice cookie type of smell, anything but.

Taste, thin, bad mouthfeel. Where's the smoothness of the oats? Where is anything that tastes like a stout? There's some mild bitterness to the beer, but it just seems like a mess. There's nothing to say positive about this. Its thin, it lacks good flavor, what is there is neither oatmeal nor cookie, it tastes like a real stout was blended with water and prunes. Pass.

App- This was a very nice looking beer. Had a slightly white meets brown/black color with that nitro head sitting atop it. A nice 3 finger cascading head that left some good cling lines down the glass. Nice and dense in the center.

Smell- I really didnt pick up much off of this beer. It was a bit grainular and crumbly, but I got more smells of creme and sugar. Not really getting the oatmeal from this either.

Taste- A lighter stout. Who woulda thunk from these guys. This was a slight bit of roast and a slight bit of malts intermixed with what the nose brought, that grainular creme and slightly bitter notes.

Mouth- A bit of a lighter body and seems a bit thin even on the nitro tap. A bit of a medium carbonation. A bit grainy chocolate and a little oat flake feel.

Drink- I was hoping for a bit more. Didnt have a good depth of flavor. Seemed a bit one dimensional.
