Dark color, light brown head, coffee, chocolate smell, the taste s coca beans, coffee beans, bitter chocolate tasted on the swallow, not much sweetness which is a MAJOR downfall. The ABV needs to be around 8% to give it more of a sweet, malty tasted. It tastes unfinished. This one needs to go back to the drawing board and add more sweetness for sure.

22oz bomber purchased from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem.
Pours thick and viscous black with a half inch tan head.
Great aromas of medium roast french coffee, dark chocolate and toasted malts very good.
Smooth coffee and chocolate taste..Nice.
MOuthfeel is creamy smooth from the oats low carbonation but it helps rather than hurts.
Nice stout i could actually drink for breakfast!
