look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Chimay goblet. I've been aging this one for a little over a half year.

As I poured this I couldn't help but notice how viscous it was; it was like heavily used motor oil - dark and thick. The pour left a foamy tan head that quickly reduced to a thin layer and left chunky lacing on the sides of the glass. The smell is a beautiful blend of piny hops and roasted coffee with notes of chocolate. Very unique smell - couldn't wait to taste. From the first sip I got dark chocolate - extremely dark chocolate. Lots of intense bitterness with a little saltiness on the finish. After a little more, I really noticed how prevalent the hoppy character was, which continued to surprise me from a beer this dark. The warmer the beer became, the more sweet notes emerged and took the edge off of the hops. I loved the mouthfeel - very thick and smooth, with some decent carbonation. The character of the mouthfeel really added to experiencing the taste.

Overall, I really enjoyed this unique beer. There were a lot of elements present that I would expect from an oatmeal stout, but lots of hoppy IPA character as well, and it was all blended very smoothly together. Definitely will seek this one out again.
