We shared the Oakshire Overcast Espresso Stout last night, per Myles' request. (It's been taunting him in the fridge since it arrived.
Fantastic beer, Jim. Thank you for sending it. It fit well with the weather here as it finally turned from mid 60s to the upper 40s yesterday.
The aroma is full of dark chocolate, French roast coffee, and dates. Flavor follows aroma with additional oat silkiness. Quite a great beer. I reached for another pour only find out the bottle was empty. Almost makes me wish I didn't share it... almost.
We also had the Hop Lava from Double Mountain a few nights ago after a rough day at work. I think Myles summed that one up best, "This is exactly what Hop Lava should smell like." I thought it was a really great expression of two of the original American hops, Cascade and Centennial.
