This silky stout settles to a very dark brown body headed by about three quarters of an inch of oatmeal colored foam.
The smell is subtle and lies somewhere between coffee and oats.
The taste is mixed as well, but very likeable. Slight coffee and chocolate flavors are suffused with vanilla, coriander, and nutmeg. Those spices aren't listed as ingredients, but I swear they are in there somewhere. It must be the chocolate and oats.
The head dissipates evenly and is gone before the last swig with some cling along the sides of a standard pint glass.
I am not a fan of coffee, and many stouts rely on it heavily. The Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout does not rely so heavily on coffee and that is a plus for me.
This would be a great dessert beer. think ice cream and caramel...mmmm...
Serving type: on-tap
