look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

From a bottle into a pint glass.

A: pours a pitch black color with two fingers thick of kaki head. Head lasts about half of the glass before finally fading and leaving slight lace on the glass.

S: for such a well liked beer I was hoping for better. I got faint chocolate and a lot if malts.

T: follows the smell but steps it up a notch. Dark chocolate and raisin with carmel and roasted malts on the finish.

M: not as heavy as other oatmeal stout beers I've had. Coats well but fades fast.

O: not as good as Taddy porter but a solid beer non the less.

Serving type: bottle

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Pours a really dark brown, blackish color with a nice 2 finger mocha colored head that leaves great lacing as it disappears down a 16oz pub glass.

Smell is a little weaker than I had hoped but smells like chocolate mostly.

Taste is excellent. I get the chocolate and maybe some coffee up front but I really get the coffee in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is pretty full with a velvety feel to the carbonation. Really silky smooth.

Overall a really excellent beer. My only complaint is that it needs a little more nose to it but an excellent stout in my opinion.
