My bottle says "Alc. 7.0% by Vol."

Pours a deep black color crowned with a fat, cocoa head that fades to a slim ring. Thick, rich roasted malt, smooth chocolate, oats, and underlying toffee. Loads of heavy, chocolaty malt over some dark fruit, vanilla bean, and coffee. Some char and bitterness add an edge to an otherwise silky stout. Medium bodied, but pretty velvety and oily which fluffs it up a bit. Very nice! A bit over-roasted perhaps, but delicious nevertheless.

A - pours out thick pitch black and produces a one finger dark mocha head that dies off fast. Alcohol legs and average lacing with moderate carbonation. Careful like most DH beers this has a load of yeast sediment in the bottom of the bottle.

S - The nose is nice robust, coffee, slight chocolate, and lots of oats, some smoke. The oats leave a nice soft presence and I can not detect the booze at all.

T - Real rich robust on the palate with chocolate, coffee, oats, tobacco, raisin, lingering bitterness on the tongue. No alcohol. Quit a bit of molasses as this one builds on the palate.

M - A slight creamy medium full bodied beer with carbonation that tingles the tongue. Its dryness does dry your mouth out.

O - A well crafted Oatmeal Stout that is slightly muddled and off in the finish for the style. I get the oats but its finish is not quit what I look for in a oatmeal stout. Not a bad beer at all, but one I will not be in a rush to go back and get. Still enjoyed it though, Cheers!
