MartinT (9592) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
My Bottom Line :
Roasted malts turn to dark chocolate in this lean, quaffable Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the brown-hued blackness.
-The carbonation is a tad too much for my tastes in the style.
-The chocolate-y finish is long and highly pleasant.
-Leafy hops tag along and eventually create balance.

Bottle.

courtesy of hwwty4. Pours deep black with coffee/tan head. Aroma, light malts with chocolate, oat and roasted malts. Taste, roasted malts with hints of coffee and oats, light bitter chocolate and hops. Leave a lingering bitter palate feel. Bitter chocolate finish. Was really expecting something better.

Pours nice black with tan head, aroma has notes of chocolate, roast, oats, and a touch of coffee. Taste is oat, roast, and a touch of chocolate/coffee mix, finishing slightly bitter. A bit one-dimensional, but a quality, solid beer.

From bottle and tap. Bottle smelled like butt... musty and thick chocolate. Tap didn't have much flavor to offer at all. Watery but gritty. Just a little roasted malts.

Bottle to taster. Looks good; a semi-opaque dark cola with light beige lacing. Smells solid; dark malt and chocolate. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

Courtesy of CigarCityBrew. Pours deep garnet with mocha head. The aroma is roasty to dark roasted malts leaning toward burnt malts and some biscuit. The taste is roasty moving more in the direction of mild malt astringency. Then theres also notes of caramel and chocolate blending into sweet malts and dark roastiness. The roasted malts grow in strength as it is warmed and more of it is consumed. I didnt really notice the signature creaminess the oatmeal tends to bring along.

Nice oatmeal stout. Smells like coffee with oats. Tastes like roasted cereal. Finishes bitter. Average carbonation. Elements come together very well here. Pours black with good head and lacing.

12oz bottle at brunch today. Poured a nearly pitch black color. Small tan head atop it. Aroma was some coffee roast. Oat character. Flavor was some bitter roasted chocolate malts. Flavor was about the same, roasted. Medium-bodied. Easy drinking.
