3.5/5 rDev -5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Poured a jet black with a light brown head. was a good fingers worth of head that slowly dissolved.
S: Big time aromas of freshly brewed black coffee, nice roastiness with tones of malt and a hint of dark chocolate.
T: Big difference from the massive aromas versus taste. For as big as the coffee tones hit your nose its not nearly as big on the palate. So for those who dont like big roasty taste this one is for you.
M: Relatively light, there is a mild bite of carbonation but nothing overpowering. after taste in the mouth leaves a almost milk chocolate feeling.
O: Not bad, especially for the price (around 4/5 bucks). Definitely a nice starter to stouts. I would consider this a great gateway beer from getting people off the Guinness and Murphy kind of watered down stouts.

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.

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.
