This may be called occultist but I'm not sure there's much dark magic involved....
Semi-skimmed Occultist from @brewdogofficial is an 8% stout that pours a dark brown colour with a frothy tan head. There are some good aromas of roasted malts and lactose, a little mocha note but I'm not picking up much vanilla on the nose despite it being listed prominently on the can.
First taste is actually quite sweet, the vanilla, chocolate and coffee come together fairly well here. The body is quite thin, being brewed with oats I would have expected more here. There are some of the roasted malts coming out as you get into this and a touch of bitterness.
I actually quite enjoyed this but there wasn't anything really there to make it stand out. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
