Growler

Pours jet black. Bit of lacing for a head.

Smells of oatmeal, licorice, cocoa and coffee.

Flavor of oatmeal, licorice, toffee, coffee and leather.

Medium body, light tingly carbonation on the tongue.

Decent oatmeal stout, good flavor for the abv. Worth trying.

This is always such an underrated brew. This has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel and moderately roasty taste. It's one of those beers that's both creamy and crisp.

Once again, I feel like the reviews are a little low for this local brew. Roast coffee, chocolate, and CO2 weave a web in this classic-tasting stout. A little thin relative to the oatmeal thickness one might otherwise anticipate, but, I enjoyed the flavor. Good show.
