Paid $8.99 for a mixed 6-pack at Wild Oats...
The beer pours a black base with a dark tannish head with good rentention and a few lines of lacing. The aroma is like a bold french roasted coffee mixed with Hershey's cocoa.
Now this baby is a stout, it tastes more like a traditional stout versus an oatmeal stout but it works; roasted malts, and a french roast coffee with a kick of chocolate and a few hints of caramel. After the beer settles it's an absolute pleasure in the mouth, but early on it's a touch rough. Very drinkable for a stout, it tastes like a porter more than an oatmeal stout, but that doesn't bother me.
Final Thought: Yummy, one of my favorite styles shines in the tasting spotlight, this is a damn good beer.
