Pitch black with a smallish tan head. The smell is sweet - marshmallows, jelly beans, sugar cookies with a little floral hint. The taste doesn't follow the nose like I had expected. It it's think in the mouth. The floral essence hits first and then follows with a dark roasty flavor. Not as sweet as I had expected, which is probably a good thing considering how sweet the smell was. Really good beer.

Superb stout and the best I've had to date. Of all the beers I try just to try this one keeps me coming back as often as possible. Super deep roasted flavors that hang around long after the last sip. Incredible beer.

This is fantastic oatmeal stout - pours dark and creamy with a mocha-like head. Complex aroma of toasted malt, expresso, and dark chocolate. A profound taste combining rich toasted malt with a surprising infusion of almost citrus-like hops. Long lingering finish that reflects the taste of the beer. A must try for any stout lover.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Chocolate, caramel, bread crust, and roasted grains in the aroma along with a touch of flowery hops. The body is black and opaque with a deep mocha head. The flavor is intensely roasty but smooth. Lots of coffee grounds and bitter, spicy/grapefruit-like hops. The finish is bitter and tart. Silky with low carbonation but a good bite.

Consistently flavorful throughout, particularly thanks to the roasted grains and bitter/citrusy hops. Just enough carbonation to be satisfying but little enough not to interfere with the smoothness of the texture. Solid and straightforward.

Really didn't find this stout to be anything special. No outstanding flavors. Not sure why it's rated so high.
