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.

Delicious. Smooth and creamy, but with adequate carbonation. Excellent coffee and chocolate flavors and aroma.

12 Oz can with no canned on date.
Very pleasant drinking beer with an excellent balance of coffee and chocolate flavors and an excellent mouth feel given its abv. Clearly an aged can, but without a date, it's hard to tell how long it's been on the shelf. Worth a repeat purchase for sure.

22oz bottle. no bottling info

Pours a solid black body with a light khaki head. Fair retention, Lots of thin lacing

Very prominent scent ! Coffee jumps out first. A little cocoa follows

Taste follows, coffee with cocoa creates a bitter toffee taste.

Feel was really dependent on the temperature. Slightly watery feel at the pour. But as it neared room temperature it became a lot more silky. I went back and forth between giving it a 3.75 or 4.

Overall; The smell really knocked me out ! With no bottling info I don't know if I just got lucky with a fresh one, but the scents were very prominent. My only knock... wish the ABV was higher.
