Teku/nonic glass.
A: Pitch black with big, mocca, long lasting head. Good lacing.

S: Medium roasted grains aroma character (partly coffee-like aromas), medium fruity aromas - rasins, plums. Almostly none hop aroma, light oatmeal aroma. Mainly you can smell dark fruits mentioned above, in the second place roasted grains with dominant coffee aroma, than dark chocolate.

T: Medium sweet taste. Earthy and grainy steel oat flavour. Strong character of roasted malts. Sometimes it tastes like coffee with cream or milk. In the end the coffee flavor is really dominant. Low bitterness somewhere in the end. Aftertaste is mild coffee-bitter.

M: Medium-full body, silky and very smooth, almost light oily. Medium carbonation. Finishing is bitter and dry.

22 oz bomber poured into chalice.

A - Pours black with a twinge of ruby around the edges. One finger of light brown head which dissipates quickly.

S - This has a very sweet smell to it. I get loads of caramel followed by chocolate and oat.

T - Semi-sweet chocolate with dark roasted coffee, followed by a good amount of caramel. As it warms, I get more and more vanilla. Overall this quite sweet and is not very bitter. The oat makes it very smooth.

M - Moderate body with low-to-moderate carbonation. This is a bit on the thinner side as far as stouts go, but it is still smooth and creamy. Not very sticky either.

O - A pretty good stout for a great price ($6 for 22oz at World Market). I love the sweetness and creaminess to it.
