The beer pours a proper black with a slight red tinge and a nice light tan head on top. The beer’s body is too dark to properly judge, but seems clean. The beer leaves a lacing that is light and slippery, leaving very little to look at on the glass. On the nose, the beer smells wonderfully rich with coffee and oatmeal tones. Roasted barley malts also come through on the nose slightly. On the tongue, the beer tastes sweet and drying with a nice roasted bitter flavoring. The beer begins with a little watery roasted malt before opening into big roasted oat flavors with touches of coffee, toffee, and char. The finish brings to mind sweet oatmeal bread, and is very appealing. The aftertaste is tingly with roasted oatmeal and slight coffee. On the mouth, the beer feels medium bodied, with a medium carbonation that lightly prickles the tongue. The mouth is left dry with a light wet sheen of saliva on the sides of the mouth. Overall, this beer is delicious and sessionable. There is a lovely roasted oat flavor that reminds me of winter and a warm stove for some reason. This stout will not blow you away with flavor, but it is solid and tasty and fully deserving of your taste buds.

12 oz bottle poured into my Mayflower "pint" glass (its not really a full pint! Argh!) .

A - Brown thin head sits on a dark body. Slight highlights that are also a nice brown, not the ruby you see in many stouts.

N - Dark roasted malts all the way. Like a hearty piece of fresh bread. Very little hops. No spice no fruit.

T - Again, dark malts and roast. Chocolate and coffee but only just so. Not overpowering the malts. The oatmeal smooths it very nicely and adds some oaty sweetness.

M - Again, very smooth. Very fine carbonation. Delightful bitter after taste.

O - very good. Nice on a cold evening by the fireplace.

Cheers!
