Beer Review, Breckenridge Brewery Oatmeal Stout

Breckenridge Brewery Oatmeal Stout
Denver, CO
4.95% ABV

Appearance: Dark brown/black appearance, completely opaque, no effervescence. Very thin brown head that dissipates immediately. 4.0/5

Smell: Very sweet oaty aroma, very bready with crisp caramel malts. Clean aromas of coffee and hints of chocolate. 4.5/5

Taste: Strong flavors of oatmeal, flavorful caramel malts. Slightly hoppy in the middle, dry on the finish. An amazingly complex oatmeal stout. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Moderate thickness, with low carbonation and low hops. 3.5/5

Drinkability: Could be a bit thicker and the flavor could stick around longer, but overall this is a really amazing oatmeal stout. It's one of my girlfriend's favorites, and makes a really good "introduction beer" for oatmeal stouts. 4.0/5

Overall: 4.25/5
