Have had this beer both in a bottle and on draft. First time having it was on draft, so I will be reviewing that.
A- Served in a tulip glass. Very rich and dark in color. Head was about 1/2 an inch of chestnut colored head. Although head did not last long, ended up with light ring around the glass. Head laced beautifully from start to finish all the way down the glass.
S- Very very upfront coffee smell, with hints of bittersweet chocolate. Reminded me a very good espresso. You could smell hints of oats and and an almost cream smell. Very pleasant.
T- Wow!! Anyone who's had this beer will agree that coffee and toffee hits you from the start. Mid-palate and the stout begins to sweeten up with again hints of bitter dark chocolate, oats, and cream. Finishes like a rich bold cup of coffee. Fantastic all around from start to finish. Rich, creamy, and very exciting to taste.
M- Full-bodied, rich, creamy, and lingers after its gone. Begging you to taste just a little more. Not over bearing like other stouts I've had, and very pleasing to the mouth
O- A world class stout, no other way to say it. All around this is one of my favorite beers, and if your a stout fan grab one please. Bottle was equally as good, please please drink out of a tulip glass to really enjoy this beer. I also recommend around a 55 degrees to really enjoy this beer. If its your first time a little colder wouldn't hurt. As you take sip after sip the beer will gradually warm and your taste buds will acclimate to bold flavors.

A- Dark black with a decent head.
S- A nice blend of chocolate and coffee beans. The smell dissipated rather quickly in my snifter, but agitating it brought it all right back.
T- Lives up to it's smell wonderfully, a rich coffee and chocolate flavor. Can't say I really pick up on the oatmeal as well as the former flavors, but it tastes amazing nonetheless.
M- Very smooth, non intrusive aftertaste. Minimal amount of bitterness that stays with you for a bit after you've finished.
O- Absolutely beautiful blend of chocolate and coffee, both in terms of smell and taste. One of the best beers I've had and my favorite stout to date.
