4.33/5 rDev +8.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 16.9 oz brown bottle with the Ram Brewery emblem right below the neck. “Best Before End” freshness date on the back label.
Appearance: Nice lather of tan bubbles that hug to the inside of the glass, this is one dark brew as no light can be seen through the pitch black colour.
Smell: Faint liquorice root, vague vanilla, sweet creamed coffee and a ghost like charred smokiness in the aroma from the roasted malts and oatmeal.
Taste: So damn smooth with a creamy back, the soft carbonation literally curls around the tongue and caresses it showing an out standing mouth feel. A push of mild charcoal with a touch of smokiness, hints of dark chocolate and suggestions of vanilla is a result of roasted malts and the malt and oat sweetness. Hops a light but pitch in to balance the brew out. Slight puckering from the dry roasted malt character that throws some easygoing burnt flavours as well as a trace coffee. Semi dry finish lingers long with light roasted tones.
Notes: A top notch oatmeal stout, not so heavy to take away from the drinkability and does not lack in flavour or complexity. One of my favourite beers from Young’s and one I frequent when I am looking for a full flavoured stout.
