Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Quiet and sensual like a moonlit night, this complex blend of toasted oats, roasted barley, chocolate wheat malt and dark roast coffee imparts an intense aroma and complex flavor profile. We brew a traditional English-style oatmeal stout with a rich malt profile, then add locally roasted coffee while this ale is cold-conditioned.

Black draft pour with off white head. Coffee nose and flavor. Medium lite mouthfeel. Tasty coffee inspiring stout.

Poured on-tap into tulip.
A: Pours a super dark brown-black with 1-2 inch light mocha head. Good retention.
S: Nice dark roast coffee, dark roast malt, leather, tobacco, and a hint of molasses.
T: Wonderful coffee note in this! Dark roast coffee, dark roast malt, sweet molasses, and a hint of leather.
M: Very nice creamy feel. Light-medium body. Dry and bittersweet notes that linger.
D: An excellent example of style...nice surprise! The creamy feel paired with the excellent coffee note really makes this special. And the ABV keeps it sessionable.

Had from draft into growler. Pours a dark brown almost black color with tan head. Coffee, roasted malt, cocoa, and some oats on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more lightly roasted coffee bean flavor.
