Chilled 12 oz. bottle into a 12 oz. snifter. Bottling date 12.13.12
Look- Deep brown, nearly opaque. Topped with a half-finger of beige foam that falls over the course of a few minutes. Good lacing.
Smell- Baker's chocolate, whole dark roast espresso beans, light sweetness. Very pleasant. Swirling brings out a stronger char aroma and a hint of acorn flour.
Taste- Follows the aroma, with a healthy dose of herbal bittering up front along with a hint of dried apricot. Roasted flavors take the upper hand shortly after the sip, coupled with a light sweetness. Overall impression of charred biscuit and chocolate-dipped espresso beans followed by cold brewed coffee.
Mouthfeel- Medium body, moderate carbonation. Doesn't quite have the heft or body I'd expect from an oatmeal stout, but it's not bad either. Clean, dry finish.
Overall- A very solid no-frills representation of the style that's just bold enough to keep things interesting. I'd pick this up once in a while if it was available in my area. Recommended.

a: minimal head covering a black brew.
s: Soft chocalately aroma, caramel and maybe toasted marshmallows.
t: toasty flavors with smoke late.
m: smooth with a little tanginess on the tongue - with a slight dry feeling on the finish.
o: This used to be a favorite - but now that I sit and try to rate it critically I am not sure why. It is a good brew - but it is not outstanding. I certainly won't turn one down - but I am going in search of a replacement in this category.
