Yeehaw. 12 oz bottle, $13.49 / 4 pack in New York. I had two and I'm saving the other two for aging.

Appearance - good as gold, or black as night, I should say. Great looking stout. Poured a little too flat for me, I expected more head.

Smell - delicious. All of the notes listed in the description are hit, particularly the chocolate.

Taste - pretty good. The chocolate is overwhelming to be sure, but I've read that aging it a couple of years brings down the forcefulness of each taste. I'm excited.

Mouthfeel - good, not overly carbonated like some B stouts.

Overall - great beer. Excellent for dessert. My only complaint is that it's a one-man show, don't try to have several beers in one night with this guy in the pack.

Buy this when you can, you will have no regrets.

Pours like over-brewed coffee and forms a tan head with dark edges.

Smells like good coffee with some Everclear added. Fantastic aroma!

Tastes cascade across the tongue. Coffee... some other kind of coffee, dark european chocolate and a coffee aftertaste. Leaves me wanting more... don't mind if I do.

Mouthfeel is great for an oatmeal stout, which I normally don't care for. It's thick, viscous and lasting.

Overall a great, great stout. Surpassing Old Rasputin in this reviewer's opinion.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

poured 12oz bottle into snifter

A - pours dark coffee black with a thin 1 finger mocha head. Fades to a thin ring and only leaves spots of lacing.

S - Notes of Italian roast coffee and bitter dark chocolate. Sweet hints of milk chocolate, caramel, and cocoa. Roasted malts also mixed in.

T - One of the best tasting oatmeal stouts with coffee that is bottled. Italian roast coffee, bold bitter chocolate, subdued notes of rich caramel and milk chocolate. Roasted maltiness on the finish. No noticeable alcohol flavor.

M - Rich, creamy and full bodied, just like an oatmeal stout should be.

O - One of the best oatmeal stouts and is widely available. This was my introduction to beer with coffee added, definitely a world class beer.

Two-finger head pours nicely into tulip glass. Head is brown with lots of straw coloring. Brew is thick black, like oil.

Tons of deep roasty chocolate and coffee. Very light hazelnut scents.

Thick and rich! Very dark and deep. Roasty and smokey. Chocolate, coffee, and hazelnut standout. High carbonation and well hidden Heat. Dry and meaty.

Very awesome brew! Glad I got to try this one finally. Thanks for the extra Adam!
