Dark, Dark !. Poured nicely with a slightly off white head which left slowly. Molasses and malt are predominate with a touch of bitterness (hops?). Overall, a good balanced beer and done well. One of the better oatmeal stouts.........

3.7/5  rDev -7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass

Pours a dark, dark brown, nearly black. Half finger of khaki head that falls to a thin layer about halfway through. Nice, but not as thick, dark, or bad-ass looking as some stouts.

Smell is pleasant but not very strong. Mocha, cherries, brandy.

Taste is a little more pronounced than aroma, chocolate, sunflower seeds, butter.

Great on the palate. Smooth and silky, carbonation is present, but there is no real prickling effect.

This is a solid stout, especially considering a six pack is priced a few dollars less than some of the more well-known examples of the style. Made in New England, organic, and not too pricey. Recommend
