$7 for 14 oz at Meadhall, Cambridge MA
Dark browny black with a thin, quick to dissipate head.
Smells smooth. I know that's not a scent but it does. Mushy brownie batter or moist chocolate trifle with more and more char emerging as VM warms.
Features the usual chocolate and roast malt flavors but the mix and creamy mouthfeel just makes this a better tasting oatmeal stout. Mild something in the back - orange mint? Bigger body than 5.5%.
Serving type: on-tap
