The Lost Spring Break 2012 Beer Reviews, Chapter 5

Black body, with small dark tan head. Small head may be the result of hotel glassware.

Big nose of deep roast coffee, undercurrent of chocolate, and a layer of oatmeal.

Taste reverses impact. Coffee is there, but chocolate is stronger. Good taste of oats along the way.

Smooth, rich, but not slick mouthfeel.

Overall, it lived up to its name.

After drinking the IPA, I wasn't too excited about this one. Fortunately, this was a little bit better.

It was black in color with a small tan head. There were a few specks of lace.

Roasted malt aroma, not too strong. Some coffee and chocolate.

Strong coffee taste, some chocolate.

Mildly bitter.

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

The pour was a murky dark black with a small (less than 1 finger) foamy light brown head that diminished in a minute or so and had fair streaky lacing.

The aroma was very mild of a roasted cereal malt and a doughy leathery yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee and flaked oats.

The taste was lightly sweet and mildly malty with a hint of chocolate and a nice creamy oat taste from the start, with the finish being lightly bitter and mildly roasty with a bit of coffee at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time following the swallow, with a mild smooth coffee flavor that was left behind to linger for just a short while longer.

Mouthfeel was a just bit above medium in body with a smooth watery texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall this was a light thin Stout with a decent roasty taste and a good drinkability...

I two servings from the tap at the actual home office. It was certainly a good surprise. I loved the dark almost black color of the beer. The guy that poured me my cup went to great lengths not to pour a head. He did, just a little and it had a nice brown color that was pleasing to my eyes. The beer had a distinct odor of coffee and a very pleasing stout taste. Mouthfeel was average - almost too strong carbonation but not overpowering either.

Overall, I was very pleased over the choice (I coulda had something they called a "Von Braun"), good look and good taste - it's the reason I had two.

Pours black with a beige head. Good retention. Little lacing.

Coffee and aluminum aroma. Very strange.

Lots of coffee up front. That metal aftertaste hits like I've been licking a spoon. Very astringent finish and not much complexity.

Fairly light mouthfeel with carbonation levels that are too high for the style.

This one is a mess and all over the place. Flavors aren't very complex to begin with and there are flaws in the aftertaste and mouthfeel. One of the few bottles no one wanted to finish at the end of the night.
