Bottle poured into a pint glass
A- One finger of quickly dissipating head with minimal lacing. The appearance can be improved distinctly with a vigorous pour. Appealing black, opaque body.
S- Negligible bouquet of an earthy dark malt
T- Taste is where this beer makes its mark. It impressively capitalizes on its bold chocolate/coffee character without succumbing to the typically bitter aftertaste found in most oatmeal stouts.
M- Mouthfeel is sub-par for this style. Misses the opportunity to be chewy, substantial and filling by being far too thin and inconsequential.
O- The superb taste of this beer outweighs its deviation from the expected oatmeal stout style. This is the second Breckenridge Brewery beer I've sampled (SummerBright Ale being the other) and I've found both to have superior taste and drinkability. Breckenridge is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries. Even with its shortcomings, this is my favorite oatmeal stout and an excellent session beer.
