BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States
ommegang.com

Style: Oatmeal Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Lovely, Dark and Deep pours deep black with a tan, creamy mousse-like head. Aromas of roasted malt and coffee with cream, coupled with subtle notes of chocolate and dark fruit from Ommegang’s house yeast prevail. Flavors of rich chocolate milk, and coffee and cream are impeccably balanced with restrained sweetness and hints of roastiness. The finish is silky smooth with a medium to full body.

Brewed with a rich blend of malts including chocolate malt, midnight wheat, and flaked oats, and given a small addition of lactose, Lovely, Dark and Deep has a hint of sweetness and a smooth body. The beer is hopped with Bravo and Styrian Golding hops and Ommegang’s signature house yeast is used in both primary and secondary fermentation.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours nearly black with a half inch of fine, khaki froth. Mild aroma smells of toffee, nougat, and brown sugar with hints of nutmeg and Belgian yeast.

The taste features molasses, soy sauce, and a dash of herbal hops on the front end, succeeded by roasted malt and milk chocolate notes in the finish. The yeast lends a mild, bubblegum aspect, while nutmeg affords some seasonally appropriate Belgian flare. Medium body and high carbonation precipitate a lush, vigorous mouthfeel with a sweet, sticky afterglow.

Overall, this is a characterful Belgian "stout" that manages to bring some intrigue to this paradoxical style.

Bottle from a lazy dog,
Deep brown bordering on black with a tightly bubbled khaki head that persists, Earthy roasty, spicy on the nose with bits of chocolate and dark fruit. Taste is somewhere between oatmeal stout and Belgian Dubbel. Decent enough drinker, but not exactly working for me.

Pours a dark brown color with khaki colored head. Raw cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, and some bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium to full bodied. Finishes with cocoa and roast. Smooth.

Looks pitch black-brown. Smells citrusy coffee and burnt pine hops. Taste is the same with some more burnt hops and some mint notes. Smooth with some marginal boozy aftertaste.

Drinking this next to my woodstove as the snow's coming down outside. Can't beat it.

Look: Beautiful, rich, dark brown - but not black. Small tan head, nice on pour, but didn't linger. Plus, the bottle label is very attractive. I love Ommegang's labels, this one especially.
Smell: Roasty, hints of firewood (could be from my hands, but I think it's in the beer as well), toffee, caramel, some fruit
Taste: Rich caramel, grains, roasted malt, some cherry/plum. Delicious.
Feel: Not too sticky or chewy, but not too thin - very nice overall mouthfeel, but slightly overcarbonated for my taste of this style

Overall: Another solid beer from Ommegang. Belgians are surely their specialty, but I always enjoy trying their other offerings, especially winter seasonals. Thanks guys from an enjoyable pour on a chilly day!

Pours an effervescent mahogany with 2 fingers of tan head. Great head retention & lacing

S: Dark fruit & roastyness

T: Follows the nose, a little woody dryness, along with a little cocoa & lactic dryness up front. Roastyness, a little vanilla, & much lactic dryness. Finishes dry, roasty with a little dark fruit

MF: Medium body with firm carbonation

Solid take on the stout, get some if you like style. Drinks easy enough
