Oatmeal Stout
BJCP Style: 13C. Oatmeal Stout
Bottled on: 12/29/14
Tasting on: 2/4/15
Glass: Stemmed Stout

Aroma: Overtones of chocolate and salted soft pretzel. Undertones of hop spiciness and caramel.  8/10

Appearance: Black with some brown on the edges. Light tan head with very fine bubbles and excellent retention. (In fact, I left some beer in the glass to warm up and it still had a considerable head over an hour later.) 10/10

Flavor: Chocolate in the beginning is followed by mild, dark-roasted malt in the middle that brings some malt bitterness.  That bitterness is echoed by hop bitterness at the end and balanced by just a little malt sweetness.  The aftertaste is clean with some background chocolate lingering. 18/20

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. No alcohol. 9/10

Overall Impression: A stout with a clean malt profile that lets chocolate and dark malt show through while still leaving room for mild hop bitterness in the background.  46/50

Final Score: 91%
