The Beers of California
Freshness Date: None
A: The color of midnight with a cocoa brown head the width of a finger. The head levels out to islands of foam and also leaves behind nice lacing on the glass.
S: Chocolate oatmeal which brings to mind childhood memories of Nesquik mixed in with my Quaker oatmeal.
T: Silky smooth with cocoa nibs and a slight char edge, espresso and raisin notes which are smoothed out by the oat presence. Bready in the middle with earthy bitterness which culminates to a warm finish.
M: Bigger than expected and extremely smooth with moderate carbonation which is just the right amount.
O: A well balanced stout with nice oat presence. The flavors intertwine perfectly being interesting but not overwhelming making for a highly drinkable and sessionable stout. One of my cold weather staples.
