The beer comes in a black color with a fluffy off white head. Very much an oatmeal stout look.

The aroma has tons of chocolate, oatmeal, roasty malt, black coffee, along with some piney hops.

The flavor follows with that huge bittersweet chocolate and dark coffee flavor, then it cleans up with a piney, woody hop character without being too bitter. There's a bit of roasty malt too.

The body is as expected with this smaller ABV beer. It has a medium to light body, though the oatmeal gives it a bit of creaminess.

This is an extremely well crafted oatmeal stout and one of the best I've had.

nitro tap at sams in Durham. snifter.

pours a gorgeous layered black, then grey then white. 3 distinct colors. smell is mild, not much. taste is smooth, chocolately and very malty. high carbonation. easy drinking.

overall nothing amazing, but an extremely easy drinking stout. the body is a tad too light, but other than that very good.
