This beer was served into a glass stein. Big thanks to Geneseohawk for this one!

Appearance- This beer is completely opaque and dark. I can see some carbonation columns at the side of the glass. The head grew to about two fingers and appears really frothy, color of milk chocolate. The retention is good, not really any lace.

Smell- The head is full of milk chocolate. There are distinct coffee notes and a little bit of cream. It smells very good!

Taste- There are lots of roasted malt that mingles with cooked oatmeal. The milk chocolate comes through huge mid-drink and into the finish. There is also molasses that adds to the sweet profile. There is just a little bit of spicy hop and some coffee in there.

Mouth feel- This one is a nice full body. It is very creamy for having these complex, roasted notes. The oatmeal in here does a very nice job of smoothing this out.

Overall- This is a very interesting stout with fantastic flavors. The coffee and chocolate notes are well done. Definitely sip this one slowly and let it warm.
