look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4
Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance –Served a deep brown nearly black beer with a one finger tan head. The head faded over time to give a good level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma overall, was rather light but pleasant. It was a mix of some roasted malt as well as a light bit of chocolate and dark fruit sweetness.
Taste – The taste began of a more dry roasted malt flavor with a chocolate and roasted coffee flavor greeting the tongue. These flavors are quickly meet by some caramel sweetness and a bit of dark fruit. As the taste advances further, it sweetens even more with some flavors of vanilla and cream coming in at the end. Overall it leaves a very satisfyingly sweet yet roasty flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side for an oatmeal stout of its strength with a carbonation level that is slightly higher then normal.
Overall – Other than the weakness in the feel of the brew it was very good. It had a wonderful taste profile and a great appearance. Easy to drink and very tasty.
Serving type: on-tap
