This is a full bodied very smooth black oatmeal stout. In fact smoother than almost any oatmeal stout I have ever had.

It has no bitter after notes, though you can taste the carmel flavor after each sip. It has a nice kick.. which I appreciate, so you don't have to drink a case of it to feel a hit.

The only real negative is you have to go to Duluth Minnesota to find it.

A world calss oatmeal stout IMO. No cherry-coffee infused, smoked barrel aged, stout here. Just 100% pure unadulterated oatmeal stout badassness. It hits all the appropriate notes and hits them hard. If you like oatmeal stout don't leave this bar without trying this.

Produced a one finger beige head. Beer color is a non-translucent deep walnut.

The aroma is of roasted malts, slight dark chocolate, slight coffee, and pumpernickel bread.

The taste is the same, but with a light hop presence. On the heavy side of a medium mouth-feel. Lowish carbonation.

Very nice stout. Not to heavy, not to light. Great flavor!
