Look: As dark as anything I've had before. Like used motor oil. About 1 finger of head poured into a snifter, which dissipates into a ring around the glass rather quickly.

Smell: Oats and chocolate. Very roasty.

Taste: The taste matches the smell. No hops present. A nice hint of sweetness and coffee.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: Love Wolaver's Coffee Porter. I've only had a sip of their oatmeal stout until now. This may now become on of my go-to choices. Very good brew.

Jet black beer with a creamy collar about 3/4" high. Retains well. Looks great.

Smells roasty sweet with an abundance of char, espresso malts, light lactose cream, old leather, and unlit cigar. Hinting at herbal hops, at times.

Roasty bitter with raw hop, burnt coffee, faint smoke, leather, tobacco herbal notes, and some trailing cocoa nib. Solid. Maltt as hell with a great burly intensity.

Almost creamy. Coats the mouth with a great gulp. Smooth with finishing peppery carbonation. Yields a good hearty burp.

Awesome oatmeal stout. Simple, but great.
