Opaque and near black... hold it up to the light and nothing comes through. 1/4" head. Typical stout lacing.

Faint smell of dark chocolate.

A solid recommendation for someone who wants to try a porter or stout... but nothing that distinguishes it from what you'd expect as a quality example of the class.

We would buy it for ourselves.

Tasted off Wolaver Oatmeal stout - edged into winners circle!

Appearance: Pours a black body with a massive head that lasts all the way down! Good. And Laces the glass top to bottom. Near perfect pour.

Smell: Laid back and Wolaver wins this dept. It's chocolate shop, but subtle w/ creamy, nutty on top of oat cereal. Upon warming, gets better with licorice and dark candy.

Taste: Starts with inviting malt laced with semi-sweet chocolate, caramel, and sweet coffee followed by some toasty, nutty oats. Faint herbal, earthy hops blend bitter with the sweet. Nice finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, carbonation w a soft, smooth mouthfeel and dreamy finish. A kiss!

Drinkability: As good as American stout gets and it proves you dont have to add chocolate, flavors, fruit, or alcohol to make great stout. A must try stout.
