Bottle poured into a tulip glass. I've had this bottle for about two years at least, before I found it in a box recently. Beer pours pitch black with a finger of dark brown creamy head. Head dissipates quickly leaving minimal lacing, to a thin collar of foam around the edges. Good amount of alcohol legs when swirled.

Nose is dark chocolate, cocoa, fudge, roasted malt, savory soy sauce, dark fruit.

Taking a sip, roasted malt, burnt sugar, dark chocolate, mellowing to sweeter fudge and cocoa. Some dark fruit sweetness mid tongue. Finishes with a salty and savory soy sauce along with the roasted malt and dark chocolate flavor, lingering for a bit on the tongue.

Full body, thick and creamy with moderate carbonation. Plenty of body and mouthfeel from being an oatmeal stout. Alcohol is non existent, making the beer really smooth and easy to drink right now.

Pours very oily and black with an inch of dark brown head. Nice and thick. Good legging on the glass. Looks great.

Dusty dry cocoa, major roast, char, burly oats, a touch of holiday spices, and hints of black coffee. Faint nuance of black licorice. Good nose.

Charred and exacting. Lots of husky black grains, black chocolate, licorice root, booze, hard candy, and burnt raisin. Awesome stout-y flavors. Has a firm roast bitterness all its own. Dark, gruff, and decadent.

Alcohol level is awakening, and rightly so. Body is thick, dense, and chewy; yet without being super-viscous. Feels great with this slow-releasing carbonation.

A killer brew. I have no idea why I waited this long to enjoy one. More enjoyable than D.O.R.I.S.
