22oz bomber

Appearance- pours thick, big luscious tan head, dark black with only the very edges emitting brown when held to the light

Smell- chocolate and roasted coffee and malts, hops are mellow

Taste- mild sweetness on the first sip, kinda like nougat, leads to a dark chocolate bitter midway, not much hop character in terms of bite, sweet down the back of the tongue with a little boozey finish

Mouthfeel- full-bodied, smooth, thick n'chewy, and a bit of bite on the finish

Overall- Quality stout that stuck to the oatmeal roots, smooth and chewy

Appearance - Pours black with cola brown edging where light can penetrate. The head is a light tan color, a little over a finger thick and shows great retention. Lacing is strong and clings all over the glass.

Smell - Oats are definite on the nose, backed by moderate roasted malt aromas of chocolate and lesser so of coffee. Traces of bitterness at the tail end of the aroma.

Taste - Starts out with creamy sweetness and hints of fluffed chocolate. Mid-taste things take a turn for the bitter. Moderate notes of dark baker's chocolate emerge, then turns for a roasted coffee finish. Coffee bitterness level builds rather quickly if sips are quick in succession.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full body. Incredibly smooth and creamy.

Overall - This is a very good oatmeal stout, especially after it's warmed a bit and is drank with a fair pace. Drinking it with leisure is not recommended, as the true nature of the bitterness is hidden when sips come several minutes between, but even then it's a very solid brew. This is definitely an oatmeal stout I will be returning to in the near future.

Light proofed black colored beer with a small light brown colored head that doesn't last.

Smells sweet with a chocolate and toasted grain aroma. Little bit of caramel and smoke in the aroma. Mild nut aroma.

Starts out mildly sweet and nutty with patent malt and smoke taste. Bitterness is moderate. Good flavor but not complex.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall an OK beer, but nothing special.
