Great beer!

Poured this into my pint glass and it had a dark black color with a thick frothy tan colored head. As soon as I open and began to pour I could smell the coffee and chocolate right away. There were also hints of vanilla and a subtle sweetness.

My first sip was dominated by a rich malty sweetness and some chocolate notes. As the taste lingered the strong coffee and burnt tones came through balanced with the hop bitterness that also come through. Great taste throughout from the initial moment it hit my lips until well after swallowing this beer.

Mouthfeel was semi-rich and creamy not as thick as I would have expected. Nonetheless it was very enjoyable.

Overall I really enjoy this beer. Much like the other Oakshire beers they have done a great job with this one as well.

Pours blackwith a bubbly mocha head. Aroma is not nearly as aggressive as I hoped. It's good, don't get me wrong, but I was hoping this would be bolder and not quite as balanced as it turns out to be. Roasted espresso, dark chocolate, and some sweetness from the sugars that come from the oats. A touch more of that espresso shows itself in the flavor, roasted barley, chocolate, and some sugars from the oats. A touch of some char flirts with things throughout, providing a kiss of some bitterness. A creamy, kinda thinner medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, a very nice beer. At $5.49 a bomber well worth my money. Something I would definitely buy again.

650 mL bottle poured a snifter.

Appearance - Black with some transparency. Khaki head. Off balanced collar and good surface wisps.

Smell - Dark roast comes on stronger than coffee. Little bit of vanilla.

Taste - Roasty malts, coffee. Some milk chocolate. Missing a bit of depth, but a decent coffee flavor either way. Roasty malt bitterness, but not a coffee bitterness.

Mouthfeel - A regular stout, so I shouldn't complain about body, but it's thin. Drinkable I guess.

Overall - Not bad. Clean beer and a nice coffee flavor, but not a lot else going on.
