App: poured into pint glass, dark brown with faint effervescence and thin off white tan lace

Smell: strong malt, earthy biscuit , burnt sugar
Taste/Mouthfeel: Very smooth, almost milk like with some carbonation to lighten and prevent it from becoming syrupy. Strong roasted malt up front, followed by nutty, coffee notes and caramel sweetness. Earthy without being pungent, very mild hops at the end followed by a clean palate.
Overall: A thoroughly enjoyable stout, much more complex than Guinness in its array of flavors, a very enjoyable beer. I would definitely put this as a tasty, go to oatmeal stout. Never having been a stout fan before, this beer was so good, its piqued my interest in the genre -

- smooth, sweet, dark, molasses, with just a hint of bitterness long afterwards
- drinks like a meal
