Pours more of a dark chocolate brown than black with a a finger quick to fade beige colored head atop.Big sweetness in the nose,vanilla,mollases,and chocolate,some faint leafiness from hops linger as it warms a little.A little sharp in the mouth wich is odd for an oatmeal stout,I would think it would be fuller and creamier.Flavors of vanilla and some roasted nuts up front on the palate,there is a big shot of a somewhat burnt caramel flavor wich seems to take over the finish of the beer.This is a different kind of oatmeal stout here big on sweetness with different flavors that I don't normally comes across for the style,not horrible but not something I would seek out again.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer pours a very dark, blackish coloring with a tall, dense, creamy, bubbly, cream-tan colored head. This head lingers quite a bit, too, making this a pretty beer. Small trails of carbonation throughout the body here and there, too. Aromas of booze forward, with rich sweetness of molasses, cocoa, vanilla, oak, and roasted notes. Smells rich and very layered, but not overpowering. Flavors are a little more heavily roasted forward, with a sharpness to the charred and boozy highlights. Coffee and very bitter chocolate forward, as well, with the vanilla and molasses notes coming in the background, but not with enough force to balance. This one is big in the bitter department, and the increased ABV combines to form an underlying sharpness in the otherwise robust, smooth body. Warmth builds as you go, and the aftertaste is a bittersweet blend that is more balanced than the palate experience thus far. More strength to the molasses and cream notes at the end. The finish is slick, crisp, with only a slight linger of rich sweet and booze. Solid brew, but a workout for your palate.
