The second beer I'm tasting from the 2012 Sierra Nevada Beer Camp is #45, an Oatmeal Stout. It comes in at 9% ABV. This will be a great beer to sip on and have some dessert with to celebrate the season premiere of The Office!
Poured into my Dogfish Head snifter. This beer is black, no question about that. Only a small light brown head. Minimal lacing. It looks fantastic. Smells of roasted malts, dark roast coffee, and chocolate. The taste is very smooth, but leaves a bit of bitterness and a small alcohol burn on my tongue. The taste is mainly of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. It goes great with the dark chocolate chip/pecan cookies my wife made! Halfway through the Beer Camp beers, and this one is my favorite so far!
Have you had this beer yet? What did you think? Did you taste anything I didn't? Feel free to use the comments!
