Pours almost as black as black can get. Big four-fingered light brown head left two chunky rows of foamy lace drapery rings. Looks outstanding.
Malty, oaty, a little salty. Good roastiness with a mild chocolate note. Hints of charred grain and espresso. Needs a bit more earthiness. Could dry it up to something more amazing.
The hops show up in the flavor with some off-setting pine and rugged earthiness. Chocolate dried out to a dusty cocoa and the burnt espresso note comes through more. Bitterness contributed by the malts, too. A little salinity in the finish works nicely, also. Finishes up with ghosts of char-roast and mintiness.
Medium to full-bodied with a slight powdery feel. Carbonation is medium or maybe medium-light. Alcohol not in-play.
Great oatmeal stout. Been too long between revisits. Recommended.
