Thoroughly enjoyed on tap and picked up a bottle at the brewery in November. An excellent American stout, although without the full-fledged creaminess found in some other oatmeal varietals.
Pours a dark, near-black amber with moderate coffee coloured head. Beautiful aroma of roasted dark malts has coffee, chocolate and some smokiness. The taste is well balanced and truly outstanding: a nice mix of caramelized sweetness with an underlying dry backbone and nicely bitter finish. Many layers of chocolate and espresso flavours, along with an assortment of with roasted and toasted malts.
Would highly recommend!
