3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Wild Mountain. Pours a dark brown with one finger of tan head. Nice lacing and decent retention, settling to a thin cap of foam. Smells nutty and malty, hints of oats. Flavor is nutty, roasted oatmeal, roasted malts, and a hints of coffee. Mild to moderate carbonation and a slightly astringent finish. Could be bolder and richer, especially on the oatmeal flavor, but not a bad stout.

Pint at the brewery. Hard to guess that this is an oatmeal stout not told in advance. Heavy roast in the nose comes across like dark roast coffee, with a greenness, a note of dark, charred overripe plums, and a crunchy sort of granola smell and flavor - I guess that’s the oatmeal. Moderate astringency and typically weak body - seen in nearly everything from this brewery - take away from what would otherwise be a fairly nice straightforward hearty stout.
