Pours an opaque deep black with a modest frothy mocha head.

Aroma is roasty and coffee dominant, with cocoa and dark black cherry adding complexity. Cocoa dominates, in the end.

Flavor reveals more cocoa initially, with roast malt, coffee, and char rounding out the slightly bitter finish. There's an underlying cherry character that's pleasant. Oats are not too distinct.

Body is fairly full, slightly creamy, with modest carbonation and light alcohol warmth.

Not quite as oaty as some, but a nice balance of roast and cocoa. Very drinkable. The chocolate and cherry meld well together.

Pours extremely dark black, engine oil. Brown head. The head could be bigger and have more retention, but it smells of amazing dark chocolate. Taste is chocolate, very smooth from oats, a little sweetness, and some spicyness from the hops, and I think there is a little roastyness behind all that...
This beer is fantastic

Note: 2012 Vintage

A: Pours a thick opaque yet clear jet black in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and just a hint of very dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a half finger tall dense foamy dark mocha head that slowly fades to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong flavors of dark roasted, almost charred malts with moderate notes of chocolate and licorice/anise.

T: Upfront there is a moderate to strong flavor of dark roasted and charred malts with some hints of burnt malts. There is a moderate flavor of dark bittersweet chocolate and just a hint of coffee. Light amounts of licorice/anise are also present in the finish. Moderate amounts of bitterness which lingers for quite a while.

M: Medium bodied with light amounts of carbonation. Smooth, almost creamy with a light amount of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: Not as smooth as I expected for an oatmeal stout, though that might be due to the higher ABV than I normally find in the style. There are lots of complex malty flavors and a decent amount of bitterness though the taste of alcohol is very well hidden. Very enjoyable.
