BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Twin Leaf Brewery
North Carolina, United States
twinleafbrewery.com

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 on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a brown to black coloring, with ruby highlights, and a tan, low profile head. Nose of chocolate, molasses, and baked sugar sweetness. Flavors are chocolate and berry sweet forward, on a slightly watered down body. Subtle coffee bitterness throughout. The body is light, which is really the only hang up on this beer. The aftertaste is bitter roasted coffee and chocolate, on a slick, smooth finish.
