Pours a black color. 1/4 inch head of an off-tan color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of hops, sweet malt, slight roasted malt, hint of alcohol, hint of smoke, and hint of floral notes. This is more the style of Smoked beer than an oatmeal stout, though it doesn't fit easily into either category. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable dryness. Tastes of sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of smoke, slight hops, and slight alcohol. Overall, good body, blend, and aroma, but the smoke is almost an afterthought.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass.
A real nice thick brown walnut body out of the bottle, but fills the glass with very dark black colors. Head is creamy thick and cocoa brown, thick coating of ring lacing all around and thin creamy colllar to match. Real nice lovely looking stout.
Great aroma and as advertised. Subtle campfire smoke, nice wood like embers. Subtle coffee and char roasting aromas. Certainly some cobbed smokey hints of bacon to match.
Palate is large amd wonderfuly controlled smoke. Hints of earth hop and large smoked malt without plastic burnt character. Coffee angle is a little lost as smoked and rauch accents dominate. Nice carbon char with smoke that hints slightly toward tobacco and balances nicely. Some milk coffee comes out as the beer warms up and the smoke subsides a bit with a lingering presence. Missing a bit of chewy and creamy oat character.
Truly a beer described and tastes as labelled. Missing only a bit of creamy palate feel to match. Otherwise a blast to drink.
