3.84/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Very cool looking pour.. almost looked like nitro. Pouring it into an english pint glass the light mocha / tan colored head almost seemed to shoot down into the glass rather then rise to the top. It built about 4 fingers tall and didn't settle for a few minutes. Nice lacing. Near black color, just a few rays of light shine through revealing the brownish hue.

S: Subtle aroma overall. Picking up a fruity spicey english type hop aroma, think pears and green apple, lemon zest. with some piney notes and spice (very unexpected but nice). Lots of interesting esters, I believe from the yeast used. Light bready and toasty notes.

T: Moderate amount of hop flavor (for the style) without much bitterness. The same pine and spicey-fruity hop flavors coming through. Milk chocolate and a root beer/molasses character. Light caramel and bready sweetness.

M: Nice creamy slick texture to this beer. Mild carbonation levels with no astringency. Medium to lower bodied.

O: A creamy, chocolatey, smooth drinking stout with a significant hop character. This one isn't going to win any awards but it sure goes down nice. The hop character was a little unexpected and I want to try this after it has a few months on it. Luckily I bought a second bottle at DLD.

Has a light coffee nose sweetened with dark sugars and seasoned with a hint of cinnamon and a whiff of chocolate.
It pours dark brilliant brown with a fluffy 1” tan cap.
The attack begins with chocolate, coffee, and big spicy grain flavors. Although malt driven, very well rounded.
A creamy, silky smooth chewy body has a touch of slickness and oiliness.

On-tap at FFF

A - Dark chocolate brown body with a nice chocolate one finger head

S - Milk chocolate, roasted malt, and hopped up with pine

T - Reminds me of a sweeter, thicker alpha klaus. Milk chocolate, roasted malt, slighty smokey and has a slight bitter pine hops. Finish is dark chocolate with light pine that lingers on.

MF - Light yet creamy body that you'd expect from an oatmeal stout

O - Imagine a sweeter oatmeal stout version of alpha klaus and you have backmasking. It has the chocolate and roasted malt that you'd expect from an oatmeal stout while also having a good hop presence that you'd expect from FFF
