look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Great foam. Silky, sticky and very thick thick. Thin bubbles. Deep black.

S: Chocolate and coffee. Dark mahogany. Leather. A bit sweetness on the nose and a touch of alcohol.

T: Awesome. Enough bitter to even out the heavy fatty flavor. Only slightly sweet. Heavy oat. Molasses. Espresso beans come through strong.

M. Dry finish. Thick but still silky. Slight metal mineral finish.

O: Very good. I like how it is surprisingly refreshing for an oatmeal coffee stout. Finishes mostly clean.

22 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass.

A: Pours an ultra-dark brown color. The head is a two finger mocha shade featuring a nice texture and perhaps even nicer retention. Looks good in a glass, that's for sure (especially the Samuel Smith pint glass, which almost seems tailor made for stouts).

S: Wowee, this one is very forward in its mocha, chocolate, and roasted barley qualities. Oats are faintly notable, as well. I'm pretty impressed, actually.

T/M: Dry, dry, dry. This opens dry/bitter, finishes dry/bitter, with seemingly no room for sweetness anywhere. There's a slight ping of chocolate to start before coffee, roasted barley, and oatmeal all take over. I notice a dimension of piny hops on the back end, too that never overpower everything else. I reckon it's a bit more airy-feeling than I like; I'd kill for a silkier texture, or maybe it's just lower carbonation I'd kill for. The latter quality is the only thing that bugs me here - it allows it to come off as being too dry and even a bit rough at times.

O: One has to love how drinkable this is. The lack of creamy softness is easy to overlook for this reason. I wouldn't trade for it; but I would buy it again if I ever caught it in a store.
