11.5 ounce brown bottle without dating.
Pours a near-black opaque dark brown. A decent half-inch brown head quickly disappears, but leaves very nice lace behind. Smells like bitter-sweet chocolate and creamy oatmeal with big burnt bread notes in the background. Very fresh and fruity. Lovely flavor features plenty of coffee and chocolate malts; Tasty but delicate. The finish is just bursting with wonderful burnt toast tones. Extremely smooth and drinkable body. Sufficiently carbonated, but also pleasingly creamy. Overly light for a stout, but *very* session-able.
What an excellent surprise!

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.
