Sand Creek "Oscar’s Double Chocolate Oatmeal Stout"
Sand Creek Brewing Company - Black River Falls, Wisconsin USA
Sweet Stout (ABV 4.5%)

[Best served in a Pint glass]

Rating: 4.1/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 9/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 17/20

The pour was a very dark murky brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown frothy head that was mostly diminishing and had poor lacing,

The aroma was nice and robust of a dark roasted cereal malt and a sweet leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, molasses, a hint of oats and a touch of alcohol.

The taste was silky sweet and had a nice chocolate note in the beginning and finished with a slightly bitter tinge that had a strong note of coffee and chocolate with a touch molasses at the end. The flavor was left to linger a nice long time after the swallow allowing for the chocó-coffee flavor to settle nicely on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was somewhere between medium and full in body, a tad oily and a little dry yet very creamy in texture with a nice lively carbonation.

Overall an exquisitely smooth, tasty, robustly satisfying brew that had all of the flavors blending together so perfectly that the high alcohol content was hidden completely.
