Poured into a crowler around thanksgiving 2018; enjoyed same day.

A solid oatmeal stout. Not going to flip your wig, but I don't think that was the point. I'd have another!!

Pours black with a finger of khaki foam. Aroma boasts notes of light coffee, with heavier notes of toasted and nutted malts. Despite a dark aroma, it doesn't come across as strong, or like something that would take willpower to consume. Flavor profile is the same toasted and nutted malts, with coffee appearing a bit stronger. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy, with a medium thickness. Overall, a very smooth stout with pleasant notes of coffee. Coffee doesn't dominate this beer, allowing the oatmeal stout to resonate well.

Draft. Reviewed from notes.

Just a typical stout. Enjoyable and roasty but nothing mind-blowing. Also not great to pair with 90-degree temperatures but I wasn’t feeling an IPA. A solid choice if you’re feeling a coffee oatmeal stout.

aside from its overall quality, nothing about this beer is particularly striking on its own. the coffee is bold in here, fresh and yummy, but not overly unique or anything. meanwhile, the malt bill is about right for a good stout of this stature, but there is nothing about it that is really distinguishing. the yeast is almost irrelevant here, and there isnt any weird adjunct beyond the coffee to make the freaks freak out. its almost understated from top to bottom, no frills at all, and just a very well made stout with coffee, with a rich starchy oaty body, some slight residual sweetness, and a wonderful creamy texture that opposes the coffee sharpness at the right instances without ever shucking the mellow jive here. more coffee would be cool for the flavor, but its neat how low acid it is, and how the beer seems light but the roast seems heavy. drinkable for what it is, but somewhat linear on the whole. i liked this apparently more than others, and im not sure why. something about this is honest and endearing, and i feel like i owe it respect...

Beige head. Dark brown color.

Big coffee and roast up front. Chocolate and vanilla. Caramel. Light sweetness.

Smooth and creamy. Easy to drink. Ends with a little roast.

Very nice coffee offering.
