This for me is near the pinnacle of the style for a non-imperial, no-adjunct stout. Really good roasted malt character gives lots of cocoa and espresso beans. Just quite good flavorwise with drinkability to boot.

Tap at Apex, post CBC. Oh, Captain, my captain.
A: Pitch black with a cappuccino head. Some lacing.
N: Coffee, cocoa, roast, oats, hint of vanilla, dirt and pine.
T: Sweet, lightly bitter, and oaty.
M: Creamy, medium body with carbonation to match and no alcohol burn.
O: Thick, creamy oatmeal stout. Doesn’t have the minerality of Sam’s Smith, and for that, I appreciate it more.

I like stouts... Wait no I like porters. Maybe I like both. I don’t know... But I digress, this is a stout. A perfect representation of a no frills roasty, chocolatey, stouty stout.

On Tap very deep black. Full and lasting light tan head. Very roasty straight forward aroma. Mostly roast, not much of the other subtle related flavors that some stouts have. Fairly high IBU .

Une grande vague d’anis déferle sur une base de pain grillé chocolaté. Le corps est moyen, assez aérien et une torréfaction douce en finale.
