an almost solid black pour with a finger of tan head. smells of toasted oats, cocoa, tobacco. tastes very light for an 8% stout - almost like drinking a melted bar of dark chocolate.. slightly bitter towards the end with an earthy tobacco like taste. medium body with a nice creamy feel but a little watery past the palate makes it feel like a light bodied beer. it's kind of weird to say it's a refreshing stout.

this is not a bad stout by any means. i quite like it actually, but it really has nothing that makes it stick out from most other stouts which is why my rating seems a little harsh. it's nice to have a beer with high booze content taste like a session stout! i'm cellaring the other bottle i got of this, we'll see how it is in a few years.

A- Deep brown, not thoroughly black. Head is one and a half fingers, cocoa brown. Retains mediocrely.
S- Smell is very pleasant. Dark chocolate, a bit of smoke, and a faint sweetness.
T- At first it is a big dark chocolate and smoke flavor. Very pleasing. Finish tails off with some abstract sweetness.
M- Mouthfeel is mediocre for the style. Light at first but it picks up a little chewyness in the finish. Low carb.
O- A good oatmeal stout that with a bit better body could be a great beer.

Reviewed from session notes.

A. An initially tall three finger sand colored head fizzles down to a loose layer of fluff in about a minute but leaves behind gorgeous layers of lacing on top of the opaque black brew.

S. Baking chocolate, tobacco, roasted black coffee.

T. Flavor is also centered around the chocolate flavor, with minimal hopping present. All the bitterness that does happen originates from the roasted malt itself. Finish does have a very brief flash of ester to it, but I kind of like it.

M. Crisp yet smooth, well carbonated medium bodied beer. Delicious.

Served at a good temperature with a nice, tan, foamy, thick, fine head that settles and a little lace. Color is an opaque black brown. Aroma is malt, roast, cocoa, trace vanilla, coffee, walnuts. Flavor's similar to nose with very good balance betwixt the sweet, tart, and bitter. Body and carboantion are very good for style. Finish is like flavor with vanilla and a little booze coming forward. Deceptively easy drinking beer. Great for chilly willys. And I like it too!

A big thanks to Aaron (laymansbeerfan) for this beer. Cheers!

Appearance – Pours a dark viscosity into a tulip with about two fingers of mocha head that dissipates at a quick pace leaving good lacing.

Smell – A great bittersweet cocoa character, oats, toasted malts, and coffee.

Taste – Similar to the aroma. Lots of cocoa, earthy hops, slight hops, just a little coffee, nuttiness, and some roasted malts.

Mouthfeel – Medium to almost lighter bodied, plentiful and active carbonation.

Overall – Actually, this is a pretty good beer. No alcohol warmth or flavor. Extremely quaffable and a great night cap. Curious why this gets such bad reviews. It’s not the best…but certainly not the worst. I’d drink this again for sure.

Body is black with a bit of brown showing and a big white head that skips to the glass edges pretty quickly. Aroma is straightforward, primarily chocolate with some roasted tones and lactose. Simple, but nice. Definitely fits its billing with an obvious chocolate flavor. It’s on the sweet side, with a noticeable alcohol burn. Roasted flavors are really dialed back making the chocolate flavor more apparent. Finishes very sweet with faint, earthy hops. Body is medium-heavy and smooth. Carbonation is on the high side and a bit choppy.

This is a pretty nondescript oatmeal stout as far as I’m concerned. Not really any “off” flavors in particular, but the alcohol content is way too high relative to the amount of flavor and it comes across overly sweet. This brewery seems to be hit or miss for me with their alt and brown as hits and IPAs, stouts, and porter as misses.
