22 0z. bomber into a pint glass

A - Dark black with 2 fingers of head. Great looking beer!

S - Coffee, chocolate, oats, grain

T - Fresh Roasted Coffee, Smoke, Oatmeal, and a slightly creamy finish. A little bitter, but i like that as I'm a habitual coffee drinker.

M - Very low carbonation, a little creamy but a little thin for an oatmeal stout.

D - The coffee flavor is great and done right. High quality locally roasted beans and it shows. Sometimes coffee beers have that poor quality Maxwell House coffee taste to them, but not this one. As a constant coffee drinker this is the best mix of great coffee flavor and beer i've found.

22oz bottle into a chalice
no bottling dates

Thanks to haveanother1 for sending this over via trade.

A: Opaque black with 3 fingers width of bubble tan colored head. Bubbles settle and it becomes a dense 1 finger width that has great retention. Leaves a sheet of lacing down the side of the glass.

S: Oatmeal and lactose like heavy cream, a bit herbaceous, subtle coffee and chocolate.

T: Roasty and grassy/herbaceous. Oatmeal, a more pronounced coffee than was present in the aroma, lactose and a subtle semi-sweet bakers chocolate.

M/D: Nice smoothness, mouthfeel on the lighter side, carbonation moderate, drinkability is average.

O: Solid brew, nothing spectacular, but a nice Sunday morning beer to get my homebrew day started.
