Glassware - Tulip

A - Pours very dark brown, almost black with a quarter-inch, beige head.

S - Coffee and roasted malts initially, then some dark chocolate comes through.

T - The coffee comes on strong first, then deep, roasty malts and dark chocolate. The combination of bitter coffee and roasted malts lingers on the palate for a while. I'm even getting a hint of licorice in the aftertaste. Kinda nice.

M - For a 7.5% oatmeal stout, the body is light. With the first sip I couldn't help but think "watery." It becomes slightly creamier as it warms, but not enough to get it to where it should be.

O - Intense, bitter flavors from the coffee and roasted malts make for a good flavor profile, but the body was just lacking. Even a slightly thicker body would've helped a lot. Overall, a good beer. Most probably won't quibble over the body.

Pours a dark, dark brown with plenty of khaki colored head. Coffee, strong coffee and chocolate on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more coffee and some roasted malt.

Way too toasted-burned for me.

Deep dark brown. Nice roasted profile in the nose. The body is average for a mid-range abv stout. The roasted bitter flavor is solid but it clearly is a result of the roasted malt as I am not really getting much coffee in this offering.

An excellent example of a well-made stout but the price point may be a touch too high for what one gets.
