This is another of my Tavour boxes to further The CANQuest (tm)! I find that I am not buying many bottles from them, but I am trying to snap up the CANs as they become available. I really like the opportunity to get so many CANs from the Rockies and the West Coast.

From the CAN: "Coal Miner's Cuzzin is a Stout brewed with flaked oats and a variety of English malts. Subtle hopping with East Kent Goldings round out the smooth and delicate flavor profile."

I Crack!ed the vent & then beCAN a slow, gentle Glug into the awaiting glass. After it was deCANted, I preformed and in-glass swirl to create just under three fingers of dense, rocky, deep-brown head with great retention that left nice lacing in its wake. Color was Black/Opaque (SRM = 44), allowing ZERO light penetration. Nose had an unexpected roasting nuttiness to go along with the expected scents of coffee & chocolate. Hmm. Mouthfeel was medium, but a tad thin for the style. The taste was chocolaty & nutty, but nothing about which to get excited. This was kind of middle-of-the road for this style. Finish was semi-dry, chocolaty & nutty with a slight smokiness, but I just felt like there was unrealized potential in this one. YMMV.

Looks perfect. Black solid body, tan head that vanishes into a web of heavy lacing. Weird smell like burnt rubber but I kinda like it. Like new rubber toy-from-the -dime store. I like it in an equally weird way (I liked rubber lizards and such as a child). The smell carries over into the taste. Cold coffee with a bit of chocolate also. As it warms it becomes more complex. Nice oaty feel. I love the relatively dry finish. But the toy-made-in-Taiwan never goes away.

a very nice glass of beer here from the odd13 crew. its an oatmeal stout, but its loaded up to the gills with notes of coffee and caramel, and despite being really dark and thick in appearance, the taste and overall vibe of this beer is a lot lighter than it seems at first. the oats give it plenty of viscosity, but its not thick and its not sweet, so it drinks very satisfying, but not filling or diabetic, nice and less common in the style. there arent much hops in this one, but you dont really miss them, and the bitterness of the roasted barley sort of fills in the finish where the hops would otherwise be. its very well balanced, creamy in feel, and although not as complex and interesting as others in their lineup, but its really well made and i think is unique in its malt subtleties. feels very autumnal to me, like, im looking forward to november so i can drink this one again, maybe they will can it for fall...

$4.28 (Including shipping)/12 oz can ($ 0.357) from Tavour, Seattle, WA.
Canned on 2/08/18 on bottom lip, stored at 42 degrees and served at 46 degrees in a hand-washed and hand-dried Jester King snifter.
Appearance – 4.
Body – Dark brown/black, opaque, effervescent.
Head – Average (Maximum two cm, aggressive center pour), khaki, medium density, good retention, diminishing to a three mm ring fed by effervescence and a thin complete layer with a rocky center.
Lacing – Excellent - A continuous wide band of tiny bubbles with a tear here and there.
First pour – Dark brown, clear.
Aroma – 4 - Roasted malt.
Flavor – 4 – Starts with a light roasted malt bitterness followed by a ghost of diacetyl and a bit of sweetness. The hops are barely noticeable. It ends slightly bitter with a bit of chocolate. No alcohol, no dimethylsulfide.
Palate – 3 – Medium, almost creamy, soft carbonation.
Impression and summation – 4 – Very good taste and appearance for the stout end of the porter family, even if it seems a bit thin for a stout. Even the touch of diacetyl adds to the enjoyment. This is one I’d buy in case lots if it were available near me.
