A: Pours a cola brown with a medium sized brown head, doesn't leave to much lacing.

S: A lot of oats and chocolate on the nose with a faint alcohol presence.

T: Huge amounts of roast/coffee, chocolate, and oats with a hint of dark fruit. Also a light alcohol presence in the finish.

M: Meduim/Full bodied, with light carbonation.

O: A nicely balanced beer, don't really see the hype but it is a very good beer.

A: Beautiful black with a tan mocha head. It looks like a beautiful classic stout.

S: Dark chocolate, oats and coffee hit you up front. Cocoa on the end. This just smells delicious

T: This beer just hits you hard! Huge chocolate and coffee. Espresso with a little bit of brown sugar. There is definitely an oatmeal quality to it. LIttle bit of a creamy milk. Big roasted malt and burnt toast. Little bitter on the end with a very satisfying finish. Just delicious stuff.

M: Not too thick but on the heavier side of medium bodied. Super creamy and slick.

O: This is one of my all time favorite stouts. This blew me away the first time i had it and i'll drink it every change i get. Delicious! Cheers! /98

A - Black with a thin tan head. The head disappears rather quickly leaving little to no lacing.

S - Heavy coffee notes followed by chocolate and milk.

T - Coffee and chocolate stand out first. Oats come through with some sweetness. Finish is bitter coffee. Very complex and enjoyable.

M - Medium mouthfeel with slight carbonation.

O - A serious world-class beer. Highly recommended.
