Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Black as diesel oil, Oil Change is big in roasty chocolate flavors. A large amount of flaked oats gives this stout a velvety smoothness. Oil Change is nitrogen charged to give it a thick creamy head.

3.08/5  rDev -17.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: It had a brown opaque but a little transparent for a stout body.There was just some tan head and alright lacing.

Smell: A not too bad roasted malt aroma.

Taste: I thought it had a burnt tar like flavor with some coffee and chocolate tones

Mouthfeel: It was very thin and watery for a stout.

Drinkability: I one of their better beers.

A: In the light, this brew is a dark brown, like a Hershey's bar in hew. Nice head that sticks around to lace the glass all the way down.

S: Roasted malts and chocolate aromas, quite pleasing.

T: Light roasted chocolate, great slightly bitter finish (Though I could use a bit more, even if it isn't up to style), great brew.

M: Very smooth and creamy. Quite pleasing, it would go very well with a dessert and in fact can be served with ice cream in a float.

D: I usually don't have more than one or two stouts in a row but I think I could drink this for a while if I weren't having a meal. Could be a session beer but it would get quite heavy after a while.

A - Pours out a very dark brown, almost black color. It had a creamy/milky off-white head. It left some very nice lace.

S - It smelled of chocolate and oats.

T - It has a creamy chocolate taste. The oatmeal taste is there too, although not as bitter as most of the style.

M - It was milky smooth and soft. A heavy bodied beer. It's almost like a meal.

D - A very good stout. I like the subtle oat flavor. The chocolate taste is just right, too.

Very dark brown approaching black with ruby glints. A dense creamy thick tan persistant head and lace. Aromas of dark chocolate, burnt sugar and coffee. Mouthfeel was medium/full and satisfyingly round on the pallate. Finishes with roasted chocolate flavors. Aftertaste from lingering coffee and little bitterness make this the best offering I tried at Flat Branch. This is a keeper!
