Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout

Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout (bottle)
Denver, CO
4.95% ABV

No real run-up to this one. Let's do the quick-and-dirty version.

Pours dark brown, slightly black, with a thin brown head that disappears quickly. Smells sweet, lots of roasted coffee, some hints of raisins. Flavor is dark, sweet, lots of oats with some yeasty dryness on the finish. Mouthfeel is moderate but creamy, with low carbonation and low hoppiness.

Does this seem a little perfunctory? Why am I speeding through the review? I'm not, really, I just don't have a lot to say here. It's... decent. Worth drinking, sure. Worth talking about? Not so much. Pretty much just a dead average version of an Oatmeal Stout.

My overall BA rating: 3.3/5
