very cool how dry this is for a full bodied and quite strong stout. these usually coat the palate and finish sticky, but not this one, dry without having a substantial irish type yeast character, and malty and rich without being bitter or too thick, clever! i have liked all the beer ive had from these guys, and am surprised with beer this good that it took me so long to encounter their stuff. this is like a milk stout in that the oats give it the same body the lactose does, and it is toffee sweet in the middle, but doesnt carry that through. coffee is subtle in here despite the description, more earthy, almost rooty to me, sarsaparilla or something in there with all the chocolate malt and velvety oats. excellent beer overall, i need to get my hands on a lot more stuff from these guys, who have yet to introduce even a B level beer to my palate, all have been superior, and this one is too.

Pours very dark brown, approaching black in color, with a thick 2 finger head of dark khaki foam.

Tons of roasted malt character, chocolate, and slight coffee aroma, but you can definitely tell it's not true coffee.

Abundant oatmeal, chocolate, slightly nutty, and coffee-esque flavor.

Heavy-bodied, medium carbonation, soft, slightly chewy, a little slick and watery.

Overall, I definitely have to say while I enjoyed this beer, I think the use of actual coffee beans would definitely make me pick this up again, but not until then.

Pours very dark brown to black with a foamy, well-retained brown head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of robust coffee, rich chocolate, hint of anise and dark fruit.

The taste is of robust coffee/espresso with a rich chocolate (cake with chocolate frosting). Sweetness balanced by earthy tones and anise. It's very complex, rich and delicious!

Full-bodied but not too thick or syrupy. Very silky texture. Alcohol is well-hidden.

As rich and complex as it is , it is very drinkable and smooth. A delightful stout, to say the least.
