Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a snifter.
S - Wonderful aroma of coffee and chocolate. Slight hint of alcohol as it warms.
A - Pitch black with a healthy tan head. Delicate, sticky lacing.
T - Dark chocolate and coffee up front. The low hop bitterness definitely tips the balance towards the flavorful malts, but a roasty bitterness evens it out. Surprisingly dry finish with a pleasant lingering chocolaty, coffee aftertaste. As the beer warms to room temperature, alcohol emerges just enough to make its presence known, before being overwhelmed by the flavors already described.
M - More carbonation than expected. Medium body. Very creamy, presumably from the oatmeal.
O - An extremely impressive Stout. The brewers perfectly crafted the malt profile to create a rich flavorful beer with just the right amounts of chocolate, coffee, roast and body.
