12 ounce bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a quarter of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that almost completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Malty up front, with strong notes of roasted oats, imparting some subtle smoke and coffee aromas, mixed with some dark chocolate and brown sugar.

Taste: My, my, my, that’s a tasty oatmeal stout! Strong, flavorful notes of roasted malt up front, imparting notes of freshly baked dark bread, coffee and dark chocolate, followed by some nice brown sugar-like sweetness and a very light hop presence in the finish. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly chewy and smooth as silk, as there’s no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 5.8%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Damn, this is a great oatmeal stout! Great, roasted malt flavors, nicely balanced with some sweetness and subtle hops, all wrapped up in an extremely smooth quaff. Delicious! This is another great beer from Anderson Valley!
