COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oatmeal coffee stout. This is a full-bodied beer full of roasty malts and coffee flavors. On pour it’s a deep, opaque brown with a creamy mocha head. The nose is all fresh coffee with a touch of chocolate, sweet cream and malt. Tasting up front you get the bitterness of fresh medium roast coffee balanced with a malty sweetness. The mouthfeel is full and smooth, almost a meal in itself. The finish is a touch of hop citrus and coffee; refreshing like an iced beverage on a hot August morning.

GT2 (9259) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Tap at Salted Pig, Riverside. Pours near black with red highlights. Good lacing. Jalapeño style green coffee nose with Moroccan dry cured black olive and Mikkeller RIS style tar. Aroma, as it warms, moves to 100% Tabasco sauce. Just straight up hot sauce. Taste is Mikkeller style RIS with heavy tar and industrial ash, sweet white alcohol, acidic coffee, more Tabasco sauce. Bizarre. Would receive a 1.8 from MrChopin and perhaps a 0.8 from 3fourths.

Aroma: lots of coffee, chocolate fudge and caramel, rich and roasty. Appearance: jet black and mostly opaque, tan head with average retention and just a bit of lacing. Taste: rich chocolate and plenty of coffee, molasses and caramel, toast and roasty malts, a bit of sweetness, fairly dry coffee finish, bitterness is mellow and lets the malt and coffee take center stage. Palate: medium to full body, low silky carbonation. Overall: really nice coffee stout, I like that its a manageable abv, good balance.

The flavor is nice and rich with tons of coffee, chocolate, and toffee. Molasses, some earthy notes, lots of roast, and a slight creaminess. Good mouthfeel, too.
