Moody Ales – Lusty Chocolate Oatmeal Stout Review
Port Moody BC’s Moody Ales has released the Lusty, a Chocolate Oatmeal Stout to tempt the craft beer connoisseur’s senses. This chocolate infused Oatmeal Stout pours a very dark, deep brown colour with a thin finger’s worth of head that leaves light lacing on the glass’s sides. From the Lusty comes a creamy chocolate aroma that is almost reminiscent of a milk stout. The soft and smooth chocolate tones leave room for a light cocoa bitterness, slight toasted aroma and a fairly well defined maltiness to the body. On the flavour the beer is light bodied and the malt characteristics are well known up front with a slight metallic tone. As the flavour progresses the cocoa bitterness and creamy chocolate notes emerge and give a slightly more bittter than expected overall flavour. Mild sweetness is compensated for with the bitter tones making for an enjoyable, diversely flavoured and tasty chocolate oatmeal stout.
