Thanks to beachbum1975 for including a couple of these in a recent trade....
A - Individually done, baby blue waxed cap marked 09/08 with silver marker on the back of the bottle. Pours pitch black with a small deep tan head leaving little lacing.
S - Coffee and bitter chocolate with a very slight burnt malt aroma. Alcohol is not detectable.
T - Coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Not nearly as sweet as I was expecting, or really at all. Very smooth flavor probably due to the oats and absolutely delicious.
M - Body is moderate. Full flavored, but slightly watery in feel around the edges. Very nice.
D - I greatly prefer the "Kentucky" version of this brew. That being said, this is still an excellent example of how good a coffee/oatmeal/chocolate stout can be. I'm glad to have received more than one of these cause I'm ready for another.

On principle, I am hesitant to rate a beer as perfect. This is the tastiest stout I have ever had. Is it the best? I am not sure, and the only reason I'm not sure is that there are still other beers out there in the world. It pours heavy, no head and minimal lacing, into a tulip glass (next time I'll use a snifter). It tastes sweet, and bitter, and chocolatey - I sense coffee, but on my palate the chocolate is more present - and heavy. Like I really could have it for breakfast. And by God the next time I don't have to work and my kid is already at daycare, I will have one for breakfast, and by then maybe I'll decide it truly is the best stout ever.
