Looks awesome. Dark as night with a creamy tan nitro-dense head of two fingers. Laces carefully.

Semi-sweet coffee notes, baker's chocolate, husky roasted malts, oat-y bitterness, faint pine hop, and smooth earthiness. Lightly kissed with a smoky nuance. Excellent.

Roasty chocolate malts is cut by a creamy nitro-flatness and ridiculous dryness. Chewy oats, crushed coffee bean, carob, and soft earthy hops. Faintly herby. The hint of smoke from the nose is now gone.

Creamy, but not rich. Insanely drinkable, in part, because it's not as hefty as I would have imagined or preferred. Nitro carb doesn't push as hard as i want. Still, elegant and a good "soft".

Great beer. A premier oatmeal stout that I will have to look for.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Creamy tan head. Lots of lace. Good retention. Color is a dark caramel brown.

Flavor: caramel, chocolate, roasted malt. Vanilla and cocoa. Hershey's syrup in the finish.

Mouthfeel: smooth and creamy. Medium bodied.

Overall, very easy drinking beer. Ltd of flavor for such a low abv beer. The nitro was great for this beer.

Serving type: nitro-tap
