3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A black pour with a dense tan head. Has plenty of roasted malt and coffee aromas with some dark chocolate and cocoa powder. A little bit of a coffee grounds thing going on. Flavor is mildly bitter with some dark chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee. Doesn’t have the sweetness and smoothness of a normal oatmeal stout. Some mild bitterness on the finish. Minimal molasses sweetness.
