It’s nice to discover that, even though Bacchus has a huge spectrum of dark beers available, it doesn’t skimp on flavour with its regular oatmeal stout. It's a beer that looks like a giant shot of espresso: the light brown head resting on top of this beer is reminiscent of a rich crema, and the beer itself is wonderfully opaque. The aroma, on the other hand, is like warm chocolate cake, fresh from the oven.
A silky texture pleases the mouth, spreading the roasty, coffee like bitterness evenly and smoothly across your tongue before a slightly dry finish wraps things up. The experience of drinking this oatmeal stout is like sliding into silk sheets, a cup of hot cocoa in one hand, a slice of chocolate cake in the other, a cup of coffee in the other. And a beer in the other.
