Open Air Night Walk : Aroma & Taste

Open Air Night Walk poured out a pitch black colour with a finger or so of slightly off-white tan coloured head. The head did dissipate quick quickly though it did leave some slight lacing around the glass. Open Air Night Walk started off with a light chocolate and cocoa nose, though it did have an edge of black malt aroma to it. As it warmed up, the body began to open up with some coffee and cream aromas with a touch of caramel in the end.

Flavour-wise, Open Air Night Walk was pretty much a standard stout – not a bad thing in my book, but the added body gave it more a bolder mouthfeel. The bitterness was smooth to start off with, with a prototypical flavour of chocolate and coffee that remained throughout drinking. It was rather a full-bodied stout and had a lingering aftertaste of cream in the end.

Open Air Night Walk : The Bottom Line

Open Air Night Walk is a decent milk stout that I would happily drink again when I come across it.
