look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Serving: On nitro tap


A:
Pours a beautiful black with nice cascading brown head. Three fingers of dark creamy froth drops to a film. Meh retention; some scattered lacing. (4)

S:
Coffee and cream, nuts, toasted nuts, brown sugar. (4)

T:
Vaguely roasty with coffee, burnt nuts, bitter chocolate, cola. (4)

M:
Smooth as silk right out of the tap but eventually pretty thin. Light plus body with a quick finish, very sessionable flavor-wise, light carbonation. (3.75)

O:
Very good 'light' stout.
I often judge places based on their brown ales or oatmeal stouts. It might be arbitrary but I feel like these are two of the beers that often either are super boring or have too much going on. This one is a very nice example. Rich and cream it strikes a great balance between the slight milky sweetness and the coffee flavors. It is easy to drink, smells alright and is pretty tasty. It could be a little more substantive in the palate (the nitro helps, but not tons), but other than that pretty good. (4)

A - Pours pitch black, thumb of creamy mocha head with solid retention.
S - Solid cocoa malts, coffee and malted milk, heavy grains and toasted oatmeal on the finish.
T - Nice milk chocolate, hints of espresso, loads of rich roasted malts, lots of oatmeal coming through and a hint of leafy greens on the finish.
M - A tad thin, though still creamy and smooth.
O - A tasty oatmeal stout that delivers a solid dose of flavour, nicely balanced and is easily sessioned. The mouthfeel was a tad thin, but the nitro tap gave it a creaminess that helped to make up for the shortfall.
