Picked up a 22 oz bomber in a trade with DrewskiWhit. Poured into a WootStout branded short tulip glass. Bottled on date was illegible.
Appearance is black as night with a decent tan head that dissipates somewhat quickly, decent lacing but nothing amazing. Smell is sweet molasses, dark chocolate with a light hop aroma and toasted notes coming through as it warms. Flavor follows suit with the nose - the hop flavor lingering throughout the roasted malt and sweetness (maybe sweetened with lactose) which is quite nice - I didn't expect such a hoppy oatmeal stout and was pleasantly surprised. The mouthfeel is silky smooth like a proper oatmeal stout, light bitterness from the hop lingers in this medium-bodied ale with mellow carbonation. Overall phenomenal take on an old classic style. Leave it to Three Floyds to take a classic style of old and spin it with a modern twist - nice work fellas!
