Thanks to Momar42 for the can! 12 oz can poured into a Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a hazy dark burgundy color. The head is a gorgeously textured one finger offwhite color - shame it fades so quickly. It leaves a modicum of lacing on the glass.

S: There's a dark fruit note to it that sets it apart from the more dry/bitter browns out there. Concentration of the aromatic senses will yield some light chocolate, hazelnut, and unroasted coffee, as well.

T: This could almost pass for a porter at times. There's an initial flavor of coffee (this time taking more of a roasted quality than in the nose) and oats, before transitioning to caramel, chocolate, and hazelnut on the midtaste and finish. After it warms up slightly, I notice a slight twinge of earthy hops. Rather simple in its flavor profile, but what's here works very well.

M: Not fully creamy, likely due to the strong carbonation. The latter quality gives the beer a light and airy dryness to counteract the smooth, syrupy finish. Very wet on the aforementioned finish and aftertaste otherwise. Perhaps not as easy to drink as it could be, though - the sweetness gets to be a bit much at times.

O: Cigar City could have called this an oatmeal porter and I wouldn't have batted an eyelash. That's a compliment. It's a bit too sweet to be a quick drinker, but it's richness belies its 5.5% ABV. Would make a great dessert beer.
