Bottled on 08/01/12 (aged about three months before opening).
A: A slow pour into a standard pint glass produces about one finger of dark mocha colored head that is dense and a little clumpy. The heads dissipates slowly and managed to last about half the session. The brew is a very dark brown to almost black and is absolutely opaque.
S: The aroma is a blend of dark roasted barley, coffee, unsweetened chocolate, and roasted grains combined with bready yeast.
T: The taste has a good shot of charred barley along with toasted grain and chocolate that is all complimented by a malty sweetness.
M: The body is medium-heavy and there is only a small amount of carbonation, which is just right for this beer.
O: This is a different and very cool variation on the stout style. The charred flavor is prominent but not overwhelming. It is a very complex beer with flavors of oatmeal, coffee, and bready yeast combining with the char; and then there is a malty sweetness that underlines everything, balances the different flavors and holds them all together. For beer drinker who appreciate coffee stouts, oatmeal stouts, and chocolate stouts, this beer manages to combine the best aspects of these styles into one very pleasing beer.
