4.33/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Sampled this twice at Belgium Comes to Cooperstown 2008.
A - Almost jet black
S - Like the other review mentions, you get a clear coffee/espresso smell. However, as the beer warms, the sweetness of oatmeal creeps in to match up 50/50 with the coffee aroma. The samples that I had were served pretty cold for the style.
T - Mirrors the aroma, roasty espresso flavors and touches of oatmeal as it warmed.
M- Thinner body than I expected from a beer of such great flavors, color, and representation of the style. The carbonation was a bit higher than expected as well, but worked very well with all aspects of the brew.
D - I had no trouble with either sample in this department. Overall a great package, and wonderful to sip on again, and again. Like the first review, the lower ABV is certainly welcomed in this brew.
I too hope that this is bottled by Ommegang, standout in the crowd at the festival.

Served at Belgium Comes to Cooperstown 2008. This is a coffee oatmeal stout named for Lebowski. I had several glasses to get a feel for it.
A: The stout is quite dark, a pitch black brew, with a tan colored head that neared a finger in multiple glasses.
S: The aroma is burnt coffee, lots of espresso. Oatmeal doean't stand out in the nose behind the abundance of coffee.
T: The coffee bitterness hits you upfront before melding into a deep roasted stout body. Lots of burnt grains and charred toast abounds. Oatmeal sweetness mixes throughout, adding a lactic flavor to the darkness of the stout. The best part of the ale is the interplay between the espresso and stout bodies. A fantastic brew for a great festival.
M: Bitter and burnt, the ale doesn't skimp on the espresso coffee goodness. The oatmeal and coffee creates a well-rounded, full taste that finishes nicely.
D: The moderate ABV really helps this ale. It was one of the best of the day and hopefully something that Ommegang will bottle in the future.
