Very Good

Notes: Flavor upon flavor upon flavor, delicately layered into glassware. Locally roasted coffee (Sidecar Coffee Roasters), Ecuadorian cacao nibs, vanilla bean and a spice blend transform this standard take on the stout style into a full blown life altering experience. A SingleSpeed diá de los muertos tradición.

This is a good beer, but comes of as more of a robust porter than stout. It’s not as deep of a flavor as I’d expect based on the name. Light body, Dark reddish hue (not 100% black) no real head but good lacing. Nice roasty flavor, some vanilla undertones. Light mouthfeel for such a high alcohol content.

This is one tasty beer, but it hovers somewhere in the light porter/robust brown ale territory rather than an honest to goodness stout.

A: pours a deep brown with 1/2 finger tan head. Transparent claret red when held to light. Not dark enough for stout
S: lovely cocoa, coffee, vanilla...all perfectly balanced!
T: sweet chocolate, slight coffee and toffee, some fruity notes reminiscent of a yirgacheffe coffee. Very nice overall. Could stand to have more bitterness from higher quantity of darker malts, but darn it’s so balanced as it is!
M: creamy, sweet mainly. Slightly astringent finish.
O: a very tasty, super drinkable beer that just isn’t quite the stout I expected it to be. Go and get you some of this one cause it is another solid beer from SingleSpeed!

This is a gem of an oatmeal stout! Poured cold from 12-ounce can into a snifter. then allowed to warm to near room temperature. Deep mahogany colored pour, with a tan head that left a bit of lacing as it settled. Aromas and flavors of dark roast coffee, cocoa, vanilla, and a hint of cinnamon. Mouthfeel is on the medium-light side. with a slightly astringent finish and a touch of espresso bean on the finish. This has a lot of elements that integrate together very well. Highly recommended.
