3.63/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Pint at the Stone World Bistro about a week back for four dollars, reviewed from notes
A-Very dark brown with just a little light shing through, 1/2 inch light tan creamy head that stuck around for a few minutes, some retention and lacing
S-Mostly coffee, vanilla bean, dark chocolate, oatmeal, bready malt aromas, roasted barley, a hint of smokiness, and some faint sweet accents
T-Flavor did not change much over time and tasted almost the same cold right out of the tap than it did thirty minutes later, lots of coffee from the beginning that provides a crisp dryness, some chewy grainy and oatmeal in the middle, finish is slighly sweet with some dark cocoa, would be more interesting with hops or something to add more complexity, pretty roasty overall and its few tastes are nicely balanced with another, not a bad brew from Alpine
M-Thin to medium body, dry and chewy mouthfeel, nice level of carbonation, taste did not linger long, somewhat watered down in my opinion
D-Could drink quite of bit of this, its ABV is very low for its style of beer, lighter on the stomach than most stouts, smooth, no alcohol in the taste
Not my favorite Alpine brew but still good, good to see they took a break from brewing all those IPAs, will probably grab some bottles of this in the future, recommended

On tap at the brewpub in Alpine.
Appearance: Clear dark-red brown but opaque in the glass; the decent looking head soon reduces to a thin ring. Essentially no lacing.
Aroma: appealing mix of medium and dark malts with a hint of caramel.
Flavor: lightly sweet; ample dark roasted malts; a touch of coffe in the aftertaste and a hint of molasses earlier on..
Feel: Medium-light body with low but lively carbonation.
O: a fine stout.

3.9/5 rDev +4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Got in a trade with swingracex. 22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy tan head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, oats, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, oats, and light earthy hops; with good strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, oats, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, oats, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt, oats, and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice oatmeal stout. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, oats, and light earthy hop flovors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
