4.5/5 rDev +10%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Fully opaque black with a very dark head - nearly brown! - which leaves patches of fluffy lace on the sides of the glass.
Scent is charred, roasty, bitter. Coffee. Cocoa powder. Black licorice.
Taste is bitter / semisweet chocolate, coffee and burnt charred breadcrust. Cocoa powder. Just enough molasses sweetness to rein in the bitter and burnt flavors. A hint of peat smoke, intriguingly. I think I detect a vague leafy hop note in the finish.
Mouth is soft and creamy.
Drinkability is excellent.
Can't believe I've never had this before. This is a fantastic oatmeal stout and at 5% it is sessionable.

3.66/5 rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
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.
