Pours an intense dark black with faint hints of brown at the edges. A great tan head compliments the blackness perfectly. Tightly laced bubbles cling to the sides of the glass.
The aroma is the richest, bitter coffee smell I've ever experienced with a rich chocolate aroma following right behind.
The bitter chocolates and coffees are amazingly prominent with a mild alcohol burn throughout. The oatmeal keeps the smoothness intact the whole way through. There is also a great hop presence that works well. It's not dominant by any means, but it is there.
My only wish is that the mouthfeel was a little more full. It is definitely medium to full bodied, but I could stand it a little thicker. That said, this is a delicious beer that I would sip on all night and finding any fault in it at all is very hard to do.
Serving type: on-tap
