22oz bomber served in a tall glass. Beer pours deep, dark brown, and is opaque in the glass, with a thick, foamy brownish tan head. Aroma is big and roasty, with roasted malt more forward than coffee, at least from a cold temperature. But in the flavor, the coffee comes through right away. Americano and milk stout blend together in perfect balance and are amplified by a satisfying, creamy mouthfeel, with just enough carbonation to kick through and keep it lively. Well executed & highly enjoyable.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance is a jet black body with a one and a half finger off-white/tan head with a fairly thick off-white/tan foamy lacing. The smell has some dark roasted coffee with some espresso. The taste is roasty yet also bitter coffee flavors coming through fairly strong, milk chocolate amplifying the flavor. She has a roasty coffee aftertaste and dry espresso finish. The palate is about a medium, comes across semi-sessionable, and has a carbonation which is pretty smooth yet good for the style and to me. Overall, this is a good American Stout. Good job Oakshire, I’d have this one again.

Black in color with no light penetration. There's a fingernail of beige covering the top of this beer. The aroma is espresso first along with some creamy oatmeal in the mix. I'm tasting very bold espresso with just a trace of flaked oats and dark malt. The mouth is creamy and smooth due to the flaked oats, but also a touch oily due to the coffee.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque in the glass, with a thin light khaki head that dissipates to patches with light lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, drip coffee, hints of cocoa and vanilla. Flavor is mellow dark toasted malt, light milky chocolate, a hint of cocoa. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A somewhat subdued stout, but a very nicely balanced one, with a firm flavor throughout the taste and a pleasant lingering dark malt and latte (rather than espresso) finish. Although the coffee was milder than I expected, I really like the smooth integration of flavors. Nicely done.

22 oz. bottle:

Pours very dark brown to black with a lasting creamy head and plenty of lacing. Looks like an espresso with a rich head and lacing.

The smell is of strong espresso with some dark bready grain.

The taste is of roasted espresso - slightly burnt. Very dry finish.

A bit astringent. Soft feel. Mixed feelings about the feel - going with the higher of the two scores I had in mind. Strong roast lingers.

22 oz bottle of Oakshire Overcast Espresso Stout purchased and consumed in Oregon.

Large creamy and durable tan head over an opaque black body.

Aroma of dark roasted grains and wet coffee grinds.
Flavor: mildly bitter with hints of dark chocolate, black coffee, faint dark fruit and a touch of smoke.
Excellent soft mouthful.
