A: poured nice and dark like a stout should be, great thick, dark tan head.

S: smells amazing! Lots of coffee, little bit of bitter dark chocolate.

T: loads of great coffee flavor followed by some slight bitterness from the hops with the slight chocolate after swallowing.

M: wonderfully carbonated, smooth and creamy from the flaked oatmeal.

O: the perfect breakfast stout. Tons of coffee flavor, followed by just the right amount of chocolate.

12oz bottle poured into Spiegelau tulip.

A: Pours pitch black with minimal tan head.

S: Lots of roasted malt, coffee, and vanilla.

T: Smokey, bitter burnt coffee, roasted malt, leather, a good hop presence, and a slight metallic after-taste.

M: Medium body, carbonation comes through more than expected. Surprisingly crisp, rather than the silky-smooth feel I'm accustomed to in most oatmeal stouts.

O: I'd say this was good, but definitely not great. My biggest gripe might be the smokey burnt coffee seemed to take over the entire beer. I think coffee can be great in stouts, but this one just went too far with it.
