4.1/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Dark brown instant coffee appearance crowned with a head resembling chocolate milk bubbles.
Smell: Mostly mild coffee in the nose coupled with a bit of chocolate-dipped oatmeal cookie sweetness.
Taste: All the classic flavors are present: sweet malts, good coffee, earthen roastiness, and a bit of smoke. All flavors are nicely layered with a rich milkiness. Also, there's a gentle hoppiness that emerges near the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium, though nicely textured and wholly drinkable with decent amounts of carbonation. A good soothing beer.
Drinkability: The unaggressive nature, and overall smoothness of the oatmeal stout style certainly lends to an ease in drinkability. Do I "love" the beer? No, probably not. I do like it a great deal, though, as well as recommend it to others. Enjoy!
Serving type: bottle
