Really enjoyed this one. Pours a thick black with a khaki colored head. The smell was full of oatmeal and malt, with some sweet cream and milk chocolate in there too. The taste was heavy and a bit decadent with a milkshake like consistency. Lots of sweet chocolate and coffee flavors through out. Overall was very nice and very rich. Loved it.

A - Pitch black, opaque, with a light tan head that slowly reduces to a thin tan film. Lacing is big on this one, leaving elaborate patterns down the side of the glass.

S - Particularly as this one warms, this hits the nose with chocolate, fire-roasted marshmallows, and toasted bread and grain notes. It is one of the most pleasant bouquets I've ever enjoyed from a beer, squarely what I hope for when I pick up a stout.

T - The start is full of sweet bread, caramel and chocolate notes, moving to toasted elements mid-point, fading to a more bitter close, with just a dash of metallic notes that detract.

M - Full and slick, with none of the sliminess that sometimes plague oatmeal stouts. Drying in the close keeps the heaviness of the opening from becoming cloying or weighty.

O - A fine stout. A very fine stout. Ultra-orthodox, and proud of the tradition it springs from, it offers a far better option at the price point than many a flashier stout from brewers on this side of the pond. What I will grab when a pure stout experience is what I'm after.
