4/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Inviting black body capped with a frothy, beige-colored head.

Smell: Roasty nose with a very distinct, very appealing coffee scent. There's a rich, gooey note to it, like sniffing a homemade cookie batter.

Taste: Rich roastiness that, along with the mildly sweet coffee taste and creaminess of the beverage, makes it feel like you're sipping on melted coffee ice cream. An earthy bitterness compliments the roasty component. Finishes dry and roast with a small final taste of dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. Slight overall creaminess to the mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Thumbs up! A very enjoyable robust stout from Huske Hardware.

Serving type: on-tap

"An imperial oatcreme stout made with flaked oats and barley, finished with lactose for extra body and creaminess. Slightly sweet and full-bodied"

a: served in a large pint glass, the beer itself is a deep, dark brown in color with a full dark khaki head, excellent retention and heavy lace, can't ask for anything else

s: medium roast coffee bean, dark cocoa powder, semisweet chocolate, molasses, sweet caramels...heavy, rich, and full of great stout character

m: the combination of moderate carbonation and a light-full body make for a smooth and creamy mouthfeel, not a big surprise given the additions of oatmeal and lactose

t: all the rich flavors found in the aroma carried by the creamy body makes for a superb taste experience, chocolates over rich caramel, huge roasts, the robust and bittersweet flavors of molasses, earthy hops impart a medium bitterness, utterly rich and well constructed

d: a super satisfying stout, and one of the better examples of the style I've found anywhere, finished off two on the rainy Saturday while enjoying some Wolfpack football

enjoyed at the brewpub while home for Thanksgiving, review entered from cell notes...my first visit to the new Huske since they started brewing, and I must admit that I've been quite impressed

Serving type: on-tap
