3.63/5 rDev -9.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
-black. cant get any light through that malt infused water. very light brown head in which the ring sticks around a bit
-real roasty to begin with. after a bit some of that oat comes though. small hints of mocha
-a bit off for the style for me. pretty sugary sweet and the oat is way in the background. the roast doesnt show up near as much as the aroma would lead you to believe. some aspects of the taste remind me of the international cafe mocha flavoring
-would like it to be a bit dryer.
-i was surprised when i first saw that this beer was a B+, but after trying it i can understand. a bit off on style, and i have definitely had better O-stouts. but nonetheless, i can drink it for sure without being mad
