A big thanks to my buddy Dave for securing this bottle.
Pours an inky black with just the tiniest bit of red at the edges. Creamy and very dark brown head. Head lasted a couple minutes and fell to a few islands of bubbles. Very little lacing.
Aroma of chocolate, burnt coffee and molasses with a touch of alchohol. Inviting to be sure. I love the aroma of heavy stouts.
There was a nutty taste to this beer that I found a little surprising. Mild almonds. Chocolate and coffee show up in spades as well. The coffee flavor, like in the aroma, was a little burnt. Alcohol was present but not overbearing.
Mouthfeel was just short of outstanding. Smooth and creamy from the oatmeal. Very low carbonation levels with a slight alcohol pinch.
After 3/4 of the bomber I realized that I probably wouldn't want more than what was left in the bottle. Drinkability is decent, but nothing to write home about.
