4.15/5 rDev +7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: black just a hint towards brown. a half finger of a tan head that sticks around for ages. opaque.
Smell: big whiff of coffee, balanced nicely by chocolate and maybe a little bit of creamy sweetness
Taste: coffee and chocolate all day. bitter and sweet. nicely balanced. sweetness is a bit strong but it ends with bitter coffee
Mouthfeel: fairly light and a bit creamy. lingering bitterness at the end
Overall: a short time into the beginning of their bottling campaign Odd Sides does no wrong by me. they do a great job with styles i don't general care for (blonde ales, coffee beers, black ales.) And they seem to have a strong focus on flavorful but sessionable beers (few of their beers are over 6%) I will certainly continue to check out their new releases

This stout is dark brown, reasonably thick but letting alight light into the body. The frothing medium-brown head starts at a seemingly dense finger before the big bubbles dissipate to leave behind a foam, which in turn leaves behind moderately heavy spotting.
The aroma offers plenty of roast, notes of coffee grounds (specifically dry), cocoa, and meaty sort of walnut. It's both a little powdery-dry and somewhat creamy.
The roast offers a sort of twang on the tongue, a touch of char all the way through, with a certain nuttiness and a hint of something like wood smoke.
The feel is frothy with a bit of a nip in the crispness. It has a steely note and is thinnish for the style in its medium body, particularly as the palate combines that with the mineral feel.
