A- Dark, nearly straight black with a slight brown hue when held to the light. Eggshell head lasts quite a bit and creeps to the edge of the glass. Solid lacing, too. Good lookin' stout!
S- Deep roast on the nose with hints of earthy, piney hops and a coffee note as well. Smells decent but doesn't really jump out at you.
T- Good roasty flavor following the aroma. Dark cocoa and coffee with light hop flavor in the finish. Lasts quite a while. Again, a very nice flavor but nothing that really attacks the taste buds. Not really any booze detectable. Fairly dry. Pretty solid.
M- Pretty creamy with a slight oily aspect. Moderate to low levels of carbonation. Really nice stout body.
O- This is a pretty quintessential Oatmeal Stout with a creamy, fairly thick body and good roasty flavor. Expect light coffee and cocoa with hints of earthy hops. Try it if available but don't kill yourself looking for it.
