Beer poured into my London Pride pint glass. It easily forms a 3 inch, light brown head. Plenty of lacing and froth hug the glass as the head recedes. Smell is oatmeal naturally along with maple syrup and chocolate, really enticing. Taste does not disappoint, a roasted bitterness carries itself nicely through the entire drink. The beer never turns sweet as I've seen with many others in this style. Bittersweet chocolate also lingers on the palate through the finish. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. The beer is quite easy to drink as I've almost finished it over the course of the past 5 minutes. Highly recommend it as an easy drinking stout and for anybody looking to branch out beyond Guinness and Murphy's, presuming they enjoy oatmeal like flavors of course.

poured into a tulip glass
(Side note: The production date on the bottle says it was made over 4 years ago)
a - Black body with dark orange tint. Two finger fluffy head. Head color is caramel. Head deflates slowly in the center and then later on the edges to form a half finger, dark latté colored head.
s - Creamy and smokey-cigar smell. Bourbon notes.
t - cream and oats start. Middle is nutty/coffee bean. Finish is milk, coffee, and toffee.
m - Full and smooth. Linger feels like milk or cream lines the mouth
o - Head wasn't as rich and full as I usually like in a stout. The flavor was simple, but tasty. Mouthfeel of the body was very nice, and the best part of this beer.
