BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Twin Leaf Brewery
North Carolina, United States

Style: Oatmeal Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Dark, lovely, luscious. The deep, dark brown color hints at the flavors within. With an aroma reminiscent of chocolate and freshly baked cookies, this beer is smooth, silky, creamy, full-bodied, roasty, toasty, and slightly nutty. This is one beautifully balanced, rich, and exquisite stout.

This is a nice array of stout characteristics from chocolate malts, coffee, roasted beans, molasses, charred wood and campfire embers. Light on taste and feel, though.

Poured from a growler into a curved pint glass.

A- Black with ruby/brown highlights. One finger tan head that moves to a 1/8 inch lace. Good retention.

S - Oatmeal flakes, chocolate, coffee, mild smoke, roasted grains.

T - Follows the nose, with some nuts and a touch of bitter hops on the finish.

M - Creamy, but there is enough carbonation to hold it together.

O - Very solid representation of the style. Looking forward to some other offerings from this new brewery.
