look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Opaque coffee with an attractive thick, foamy and deep brown head. No lacing not the glass and no visible carbonation.

S: Intense roasted malts with notes of coffee and chocolate. A hint of booze.

T: Big roasted malt profile. Semi-dry and moderately bitter finish with notes of cocoa powder and dark chocolate. A warm, slightly boozy finish.

M: Velvety smooth.

D: Big roasted malts from start to finish in this well constructed oatmeal stout. Big nose and flavor, looks and feels great. This is always on the shelf. Definitely could be a to too stout.

Yes indeed, The Crusher! This most excellent stout pours a thick rich black with a thin dark tan
head and moderate lacing. A most excellent nose of coffee, toffee, dark cocoa, and dark
roasted goodness. Taste is incredibly complex. Flavors of coffee and chocolate crash in waves
with butterscotch notes on the back and cocoa notes up front. A light dry cocoa coating to the
tongue with deep roasted coffee and chocolate malts leaving a pleasant coating that easily
declares that this is a stout to be sipped and enjoyed. Alcohol is well hidden in this one---
WATCH OUT! It will definitely kick ya' in the jimmy! Delicious.
A most exuberant CHEERS!
