A pint at YEGDT, AKA Oliver Square Brewsters.

This beer appears a solid black, with lazy basal cola highlights, and one fat finger of thinly foamy, kind of fizzy beige head, which leaves some sparse islet lace around the glass as it steadily abates.

It smells of toasted dry chocolate malt, roasted coffee beans, faint cream, and prominent earthy, musty hops. The taste is more singed caramel malt, medium chocolate pudding, sugar-free cafe au lait, and leafy, earthy hops. Simple, sure, but damned good at it.

The carbonation is rather soft, but not totally out of it, the body a sturdy medium weight, and mostly smooth, a slight bit of char playing the proverbial pea. It finishes off-dry, the roast still play-wrestling with the coffee-tinged cocoa sweetness.

For an oatmeal stout, the presumed mouthfeel effects really don't resonate, although sideways nature of the grainy sweetness may be a better indicator. Tasting, and warming without the booze, for this purportedly last coolish day of spring 2013.
