Review – Nodding Head – Gordo’s Oatmeal Stout
Nodding Head Brewing – Gordo’s Oatmeal Stout – On draft at restaurant. 4.5% abv.
Appearance: Opaque black with a thick, half inch head.
Smell: Spicy notes of cinnamon and cardamon, along with the smell of oats that give the stout its name.
Taste: Sweeter than your average stout. Tastes of cinnamon and toffee create a smooth finish.
Mouthfeel: Lighter than you’d expect, it’s a very smooth-drinking for a dark beer.
Drinkability: A great introduction to the world of stouts for those not into darker beers, it’s almost too easy to finish.
