Appearance - Very dark brown - not quite black. Decent mocha colored head as you would expect for the style.

Smell - coffee, chocolate, alcohol, slight hops

Taste - Very nice. Consistent with the scent - coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. A noticeable hop presence for the style. Reminds me of Stone Smoked Porter in terms of the hops...something I really enjoy for the style as it balances things out a bit.

Mouthfeel - Nice but nothing amazing. Lower carbonation.

Overall - I really enjoy this beer. For a non-imperial stout, one of my favorites. @ $10 for a six pack in MA it's a great value. Will become part of the normal rotation.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber cellared for over a year.

Look: Poured a dark black with a 1/2 inch long lasting tan head. Nice lacing.

Smell. Lots of malt and coffee. Can imagine the oats involved.

Taste. Nice oatmeal flavor. Lots of coffee, even after a year. A little bitterness at the end.

Mouth. A little weak and light, but maybe right for a 7% beer. Light carbonation.

Overall, nice oatmeal stout. Would like a little less bitterness.
