Dark brown color with a thin but thick caramel head with short retention and leaving some laces.
Nice predominant aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Notes of extinguished campfire and caramel. Also, you can even feel the oatmeal bread notes.
Flavor of heavily roasted malts, lots of oatmeal, licorice and grassy, earth and citrus hops. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a lingering roasted note. Bitterness actually come balanced from both malt and hops.
Silky smooth beer with a medium to full body with medium carbonation.
Excellent Oatmeal stout. Interesting how the oatmeal could round the bold roasted notes. I also loved its hop profile that elegantly emerges from this strong backbone. And this is not an extreme beer, it is actually very friendly. I had to keep raising its rating as it warmed up and further freed its flavors and aroma.
