3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with 5mm of medium-fine light-brown head. Aroma is dry wheat bread with light, earthy coffee, slightly chalky, hints of oatmeal cookie. Body is medium weight, syrupy-starchy and lightly gritty. Carbonation is moderately coarse and moderate-light burn. Flavor is a dry, chalky oat and coffee, some old aged grass and light/clean herbal bitterness. Pretty yummy. Probably has a lot of elements of their milk stout with the lactose removed.

Bottle at Winking Lizard. The beer pours brown-black with a medium foamy tan head that recedes steadily to a wispy film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Roasted malt, hops and coffee in the nose. Medium body with flavors of roast malt, espresso and earthy hops. The finish is roasty with a dark chocolate and malt aftertaste. Above average overall.
