1pt .9floz bottle poured into guinness tulip pint glass.
A - pitch black. only the most minuscule trace of any light gets in at the bottom of the glass. the head is so incredibly massive on this beer, there is no need whatsoever to pour down the middle. the foam is also incredibly creamy, it nearly holds its form if you pick some up on your finger. the head lasts a good long time as well, slowly fizzing down. the infinite small bubbles during the initial pour come to gather and make some big ones at the top, giving the head a bread like look, with big pockets of air and whatnot. colour of the head is a medium brown. there is also abundant lacing.
S - the brew doesnt smell as strong as it looks, or as much as the price tag would warrant. the weasel shit coffee is the most noticeable, sitting right on top of it all. behind it are the roasted malts, with a slight amount of alcohol. a very good smelling brew, but not very strong.
T - this is a damn fine stout, but its an even better oatmeal stout. the initial taste is a bit weak, tasting almost like a watery guinness, but it is a bit maltier and has an alcohol bite. one really has to agitate the brew in the mouth to get any flavour out of it; this reveals some of the coffee flavour and bitterness, and a bit of chocolatey malty smoothness. the finish is where the real flavour starts to come out, a definite blast of coffee and some good dark choco bitterness. the aftertaste is exceptionally smooth: the shit poo coffee really fits in well here. the thing that really brings down the score is that the initial taste is really bland. the rest of the stages are quite exciting.
MF&D - the body is amazing: a medium-full viscosity, with good small scale carbonation, thick, lightly slick. perfect for an oatmeal stout!
