single, Wilbur's, Fort Collins

a: poured into a small chalice, the beer is a deep, dark brown in color, an initially thick mocha head receding to a decent layer

s: opens with chocolate and clean coffee - very nice roast elements, pleasant sweetness, toasted brown sugar, graham cracker, oats, a touch of dark fruit, and mild hops, solid aroma

m: carbonation light-moderate, body around of just under

t: earthy roasts upfront hint at coffee and chocolate, but better represent the woody/smoky/nuttiness that is roasted barley, a touch of burnt sugar at the front moves out quickly, just a slight amount of char and some grassy hop bitterness work into the finish

o: a solid oatmeal stout all around, good roast presence, balanced, drinks well, more complex maltsugars are found on the nose, while the palate holds more deep roasted character

4/4/3.5/4/4

Extremely good.

Pours a deep almost black opaque beer with a tan head.

Rich toasty aroma.

Flavor is very toasty with lots of coffee, dark chocolate, and a little bit of hops.

It reminds me of a smoother, creamier version of McMenamin's Terminator.

Served from a 12oz bottle into a Grey Sail pint.

Appearance- What an oatmeal stout should look like. Very black with a one finger caramel head that slowly dissipated. Nice lacing.

Smell-Roasty/chocolaty malts. Bitter coffee. Light hops. Toasty and roasty, very nice.

Taste- Dark bitter chocolate. Heavily roasted malts. Light booze. Finishes with coffee bitterness and mild warmth in the back of the throat.

Mouthfeel- Light carbonation. Smooth. Not sticky, but full bodied.

Overall- This is a nice oatmeal stout. I bet it's great out of the tap!
