4.8/5  rDev +6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Drinking it out of the bottle so I didn't look at the pour myself. Looking at a picture of the pour, it has a nice chocolate head, which is my favorite thing about any stout

S: One of the best aromas I have ever gotten from a beer. Coffee, chocolate and oatmeal.

T: Very strong taste of coffee. A little bitter, like a black cup of coffee. Slight hints of the chocolate and oatmeal in the smell.

M: It's creamy. Sits in the mouth nicely after a few sips.

Overall: This is a great stout and definitely lives up to the hype. I will say it isn't my favorite oatmeal stout I've had but it's an incredible beer and I will enjoy the remaining three beers in the four-pack.

4.48/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12oz into a snifter, bottled 11/09/13

Pours pitch black with a finger of mocha colored foam. Good retention and lacing, no carbonation coming up from the sides of the glass

Smells of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolates, some vanilla, dark fruits, toffee, and finishes with some alcohol. Everything comes together pretty well

Taste is with the nose pretty well, strong upfront coffee and dark chocolate along with figs, cherry, and other dark fruits. Vanilla and toffee on the finish, ending with a splash of alcohol

Feel is moderately bitter with a heavy body. Finishes pretty dry, alcohol concealed well but enjoyably present

Overall glad I got to try this. Three more sitting in the cellar
