look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Extremely dark pour, almost completely black with just a hint of brown. Far too dark to tell if it's hazy. The head is a light brown color early on before fading to an almost white. Not much retention, thin spotty lace.
Roasted grains, coffee, a splash of licorice. You can almost smell the smooth oatmeal.
Aggressive roasty notes, they grab the taste buds immediately. Very coffee-like flavor throughout. No licorice in the taste.
It is smooth like an oatmeal stout should be. Very creamy, but all the while there is an intense bittering the evolves. Finishes bitter and that bitterness never lets go of the palate. Despite the bitter, there's no presence of hops, all the bitter is from burnt coffee and charred grains. Medium bodied and despite the somewhat high ABV, no alcohol taste or feel.
Overall, I'm happy with this outstanding beer from the Left Coast. I like the dark stuff and while it is bitter, it's fairliy smooth.
