Thirsty Troll Beer Fest. Pour is deep brown/black with a tan head. Aroma shows chocolate, oats, and moderate roast. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of caramel, coffee, and a touch of vanilla creme. Overall
body is moderate, soft, and finishes with some roasted bitterness.

AKA, Uly’s Oatmeal Stout. This beer was tremendous. I suppose it would make ol’ U.S.G. proud.

Bottles picked up at the brewery. Poured near black with a moderately lasting dark beige head. The malt had the chocolate and licorice thing going on, which was pretty good. The hops were an herbal package that unfolded nicely. This was as expected for a sweet stout.

Thanks to Dembonz for bottle share. Pours a medium brown color with medium carbonation. Slight sweetness leads to a dry semi-bitter dark chocolate finish. Absolutely loved the aroma on this brew, solid stout.

Fresh on tap today at the brewery.
Review from written notes, scoring to style...
Jet black body, dark mocha tinged foam that sticks at the edges and leaves a little bit of spotty lacing. Retention is pretty good, the initial finger of foam slowly settled and faded to a sticky ring around the edges.
Mellow roasty nose, dry bakers chocolate, dark roast coffee. Not harsh, mellow and aromatic. Lightly bitter, dry and roasty, supple creamy feel, fairly light bodied. Hits all the signature notes with coffee, unsweetened bitter dark chocolate, cream. Very flavorful and easy to drink, something i’d order another pint of for sure. Bottled version seemed to have more carbonation.
