single, Wilbur's, Fort Collins

a: poured into a small chalice, the beer is a deep, dark brown in color, an initially thick mocha head receding to a decent layer

s: opens with chocolate and clean coffee - very nice roast elements, pleasant sweetness, toasted brown sugar, graham cracker, oats, a touch of dark fruit, and mild hops, solid aroma

m: carbonation light-moderate, body around of just under

t: earthy roasts upfront hint at coffee and chocolate, but better represent the woody/smoky/nuttiness that is roasted barley, a touch of burnt sugar at the front moves out quickly, just a slight amount of char and some grassy hop bitterness work into the finish

o: a solid oatmeal stout all around, good roast presence, balanced, drinks well, more complex maltsugars are found on the nose, while the palate holds more deep roasted character

Extremely good.

Pours a deep almost black opaque beer with a tan head.

Rich toasty aroma.

Flavor is very toasty with lots of coffee, dark chocolate, and a little bit of hops.

It reminds me of a smoother, creamier version of McMenamin's Terminator.

Served from a 12oz bottle into a Grey Sail pint.

Appearance- What an oatmeal stout should look like. Very black with a one finger caramel head that slowly dissipated. Nice lacing.

Smell-Roasty/chocolaty malts. Bitter coffee. Light hops. Toasty and roasty, very nice.

Taste- Dark bitter chocolate. Heavily roasted malts. Light booze. Finishes with coffee bitterness and mild warmth in the back of the throat.

Mouthfeel- Light carbonation. Smooth. Not sticky, but full bodied.

Overall- This is a nice oatmeal stout. I bet it's great out of the tap!

I can't believe I passed this up for so long because it is good. Standard stout appearance, brown at the edges and black through the middle. You really have to let this one warm up because when its cold its sort of chalky but once it warms it gets nice. Aroma is sweet, sticky, nice. Flavor is a hint of sticky black sweetness, oats make it round and its just plain good. I'll be buying a bunch more and I might even say this is better than Firestone Walker's velvet merlin which was my favorite oatmeal stout up to this point.
