3.7/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Opaque black with a tan head that fizzled away rather quickly but leaves some lacing.
Aroma: Like most american stouts of lower abv it gives off a sweet aroma without being too robust. Some hints of coffee and just a smooth smell overall.
Taste: There's not a whole lot going on here but what is there is good. The oatmeal has definitely done it's job in making this a smooth brew. Light bitterness of black coffee in the aftertaste and a sort of bland malt-forward stout taste fills the rest of the flavor profile. It's a very simple flavor but enjoyable with a nice creamy quality.
Mouthfeel: Gave this a vigorous pour so it's super smooth and highly drinkable. Light side of medium bodied.
Final Thoughts: If this was on nitro-tap I'd prefer it to a Guinness just for the oatmeal quality. While it's not the best of the style it's definitely a good beer. I applaud any beer that can achieve this level of enjoyment while retaining an abv under 5%.
