4.18/5 rDev -0.9%
A- Very dark brown, almost black looking, with no light coming through. Fluffy tan head that lingers around and leaves a lot of lacing.
S- Roasted malt, flaked oats, grainy bread, slight note of sweet bread.
T- Huge roasted malt flavors, grainy bread, rolled oats, hint of cocoa powder, mineral finish. A lot going on for a low abv beer.
M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, slight carbonation tingle
O- Very good oatmeal stout. Smooth and grainy, extremely drinkable.

Giving this icon a day in the Chaney court.
Served in a Port City snifter.
A: Poured as black as night, with a slight off-white mocha head that looked pretty cool to my mind. Sticky!
S: Pretty fruity in the stout realm. Dark fruit that is, along with a nice malt back backbone.
T: How to describe this... hmmm...: Dark malt, almost in the Baltic Porter category, but not quite. A bit of licorice combined with dark chocolate.
M: Nice carbonation, sweetness, ridiculous lacing, etc. In a few words... very nicely done.
O: For about $3.99/bottle, this was a steal. Excellent UK import.

550 ml bottle, no bottled-on date, poured into a pint glass.
A- Pours a dark brown with reddish hues, topped with a thick inch of creamy, cake-like tan head, which has excellent retention and leaves lots of lacing.
S- Mild aroma of chocolate, coffee and roasted grain, a bit of fruity sweetness.
T- Sweet milk chocolate, oats, mild coffee flavors, along with roasted grain and mild fruitiness. It's a nice balance of sweet chocolate and fruit flavors along with roast and hop bitterness. Also has a milky, creamy flavor to it.
M- Medium-bodied, has a wonderfully smooth, silky and creamy feel.
O- A great beer, it's very flavorful but also balanced and drinkable enough that I would recommend this very highly to someone who had never had a stout before, it's worth buying and then buying again.
