Wow, if ever there was a beer that gained from being let warm up. At first this seemed harsh and boozy, which of course doesn’t make too much sense. Decent aroma, on the roasty chocolate side, as it warms the mouthfeel and flavor improve. Pretty decent. How does it compare to Kalamazoo or something like that? Well, I’m not totally sure-I’m not sure why this is in the sweet stout section.

On tap at Delirium Café, how awesome is this? Pours absolutely gorgeous black with a brown big head that does not fade. Oatmeal, coffee, hints of chocolate, roast. Awesome oatmeal stout, love!

sebletitje (7156) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2015
Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Brune foncée, col crémeux café au lait. Arôme offre un bouquet renforcé au niveau grains et avoine, d’où ressort une certaine épaisseur. Note de café en retrait ponctué par une note de pâte de pâtissier. Palais est malté, pointe d’avoine en épaisseur. Garde un côté caramel et café assez prenant et persistant. Un peu sec sur la fin voire poussiéreux et ponctué d’un léger pétillant. Possible ajout de réglisse qui perce en fin de bouche.

alteregoo (182) - POLAND - APR 2, 2015
Po przelaniu tworzy się nieduża warstewka zbitej beżowej piany, ładnie oblepiającej szkło. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. W aromacie czekolada, kawa latte, trufle, prażone ziarno. Jest też delikatna siarka. Aromat bardzo podobny do Sweet Nygus z Solipiwko. W odczuciu piwo jest gęste, nisko nagazowane, bardzo pełne, ale nie wyklejające, ponieważ nie jest słodkie, raczej dość wytrawne jak na sweet stouta. Jest oczywiście lekka odsłodowa i laktozowa słodycz, jednak szybko kontrowana gorzką czekoladą, kawą espresso, nutami palonymi, korzenno-rumową goryczką na średnim poziomie. Nie ma kwaśności od ciemnych słodów. Jest to piwo z USA, czyli nie jest tanie. Warto jednak spróbować, ponieważ twórcom udało się tu połączyć pełnię RISa ze stoutową pijalnością. Nie jest to trunek wybitny, aczkolwiek bardzo dobry. Poprawa aromatu podniosłaby jego atrakcyjność.
