12oz can, sample from the brewery.

Tan lacing puts on a show atop the black liquid. Roasty nose with some sweetness. Even roasted grain tone throughout, hits all of the bells and whistles for the style. Very smooth within the medium body. A very well put together beer.

Nice sized light brown head receded very slowly above a rich dark brown colored stout.
A decent aroma of roasted grain malts, grain, with maybe a bit of dark chocolate coming through as well.
The taste is similar to the aroma with roasted grain malts and a bit more dark chocolate but still not very much and the over all taste isn't as rich as the aroma is.
Nice dry aftertaste finishes this beer off pretty well.

Pours a very dark brown with a khaki head, nearly opaque black in the glass. Nose and taste are of oats, roasted malts, some chocolate, and earthy forest floor flavors. Denver knows how to make em!

I find this to be a dry oatmeal stout which is nearly a foreign stout or Irish stout in flavor. There are no flaws in flavor, feel, or aroma. The aroma and flavor incorporate elements of roast, darkly roasted barley, and a hint of coffee char. Overall this is a good beer, but it didn't leave me highly impressed. I would never turn one down, but among the hundreds of choices available today, I wouldn't seek it out.

Dark, dark, gritty brown color. Thin-ish head of bubbly mocha-taupe foam. Nice lacing. Smell isn't overpoweringly strong, but pleasant. Dark cocoa notes, roasted grains, back end of dark brown sugar. Wish it was a bit stronger, but I have been out in the cold for a while, maybe my nose is numb. Taste is pretty good; nicely bittered dark roasted goodness, rounded off somewhat with the oats. Still a tad sharp tasting, but nothing offensive.Hoppier than most oatmeal stouts but it seems to suit it well. Yup, definite alpha oil in the finish. Touch of yeastiness in there, too. Leaves a nice lingering bitter grain taste. Body seems a tad thin for my liking. Also, carbonation is a little to present. Seems less smooth than other oatmeal stouts I like.

Overall, a good stab at the style. I always love Upslope and everything they do, and this was just another solid beer in their solid lineup. An imperial version of this would be the tits.
