a solid stout I’d score higher if not for an ever so slight vegetal quality on the palate. Otherwise smooth, with nice lightly burnt roast and hints of chocolate and coffee. medium bodied.

Draught at the Tenaya Creek, Las Vegas, NV. Black colour with a small tan head. Coffee, bitterness, roasted malt and dryness in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, dry ash and mild bitterness. The coffee is not that present in the flavour. I like that.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My first impression while watching the dark medium head dissipate was an aroma of dried plums or raisins bouncing around with the chocolate and grassy hop aromas. Once it warmed up, the roasted malts were far more dominant. It delivers a classic oatmeal stout sweetness that doesn’t go too far but enough to round out the touch of bitterness really well. This full bodied beer is silky, smooth and thick with an understated carbonation. If only I had a brownie right now.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: 6/10. Surprisingly piney and hopped for an oatmeal stout. Gentle notes of coffee and chocolate, a little caramel.
Appearance: 5/5. Beautiful cola-brown pour with a thin white head that lingers.
Taste: 7/10. Surprisingly highly hopped for an oatmeal stout, but exceptionally well balanced on the hopping; a pleasant piney bitterness overlaying gentle, chalky sweet malts and minerality. Little bit of coffee, some chocolate, some caramel.
Palate: 4/5. Smooth over the tongue and teeth, as you’d expect from an oatmeal stout, with a lingering, pleasant light bitter coffee, nutty finish.
Overall: 15/20. If you like oatmeal stouts but wish they were hopped higher, with overtones of pine, you’ll like this one. Even if, like me, you usually drink stouts because you hate hops, this brew balances the hops perfectly.
