At the risk of sounding like I plagiarized from the brewerys own description, I must say this classic oatmeal stout is a clean and exceptionally smooth example of the style, featuring a fresh and flavorful roasted malt taste, with roasted hints of coffee and milk chocolate. Pours a pleasant translucent coffee-brown color with a nice creamy and foamy head. Truly a silky smooth mouthfeel with a simple but superior roasted malt flavor profile.

A little bit on the sweet side but still pretty darn good. A simple sweet stout flavor of chocolate mostly. Plus it tastes like victory, as I won this for Denver beating Oakland.

Mainuh_man (291) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2016
12 Oz bottle. Pours black with a big, brown head that dissipates quickly, leaving strong, slow legging. Tons of chocolate, coffee and roasty malt with some cherry on the nose. Lots of chocolate flavor, quite sweet with lingering burnt malt bitterness and alcohol at the end. Thick, creamy mouthfeel with cloying sugars. Overall, really decent. Hits all the senses well.
