A: Pitch black color, no light gets through the beer when held up to the light. The look of the beer is "thick" which I find appealing for a stout and goes the a liquid meal standard. Head is minimal on a standard pour into a glass and would be nice if it could be a bite thicker.
-- Bottle is well designed and catches the eye when on a shelf. Bottle cap is a boring gold cap, probably one of my few critiques of the beer I have.
S: Great roasty/smokey smell with a rich malt. However, as the beer warms up, there is a distinct alcohol smell on the backend that can be appreciated
T: Fantastic, full bodied stout with roasted caramel/malt flavor and smokey flavors. Again as the beer warms, the high alcohol content can be appreciated.
M: Silky smooth through and through
O: One the best oatmeal stouts I have had to date. Highly recommended but if the taste of "liquor style alcohol" is turn off for you, make sure to keep the bottle chilled as you enjoy.
Serving Style: Bottled
