-beautiful head light brown, deep dark black
-alcohol and oatmeal, light cream
- thick but not overpowering, cream flavor with oat notes, lingering oatmeal flavor
-good body, thick, lingers but pleasant and comforting
-hoped for a higher adv, but overall a great crafted beer taste is next to none. Will drink time and time again.

Dark brown/black pour leading to a big rocky head of inviting tan foam.
Aroma-Toasted malt, subtle cocoa
Taste-Toasted malt, milk chocolate, "Yorkshire Square" subtle mineral stonyness that adds a depth of character, creamy smooth finish. A classic example of the style.

Nice sweet oatmeal aroma. Easy drinking with a frothy head and smooth finish. Slightly sweet chocolate milk flavor.
