4.41/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
After a quick pour this one is an opaque inky black in the glass with a half a finger tall dark khaki head that falls relatively quickly but laces nicely around the edges. The smell is impressive consisting of layers of dark roasted black coffee, dark chocolate and charred wood. The taste all coffee up front and rather bitter to slightly astringent due to some of the black malts. Unsweetened dark chocolate is next along with a great mix of some spicy hops, a touch of yeast and warming alcohol. If I had to criticize, I think I'd say that I wish this had a bit more sweetness to balance the bittering character of the dark malts and moderate IBUs. This is a thickly chewy heavy beer. Low carbonation with added body as a result of the oatmeal make this really pleasant in the mouth. I can't believe I've taken this long to give this beer a try. What an impressive offering, perhaps it doesn't define the style but it leads the coffee heavy stouts, really well done.
