Sampling right now on 3/6/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a really dark brown/almost black in color with close to a 1-finger beige head that settles down to around the sides on top. Some spotty lacing is seen with each sip but not a lot. The aroma is of roasted malts and coffee for the most part. the taste is pretty much the same with a hint of bitter-sweet chocolate in the mix as well. A real light bitter finish.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch and a half tan head after a strong pour. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, oats, coffee, and chocolate. I think the taste is just like the aroma, except that that there's a bit of dark fruitiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and has a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a good Oatmeal Stout, definitely worth trying.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: Opaque black body with a khaki colored head. Decent head retention as wells as medium lacing.

S: Not a very complex nose mostly roasted malt and milk sweetness can smell some faint oats.

T: Some rasted flavors as well as some chocolate flavors. hides the alcohol well, but theres to much of a bite for this to be a decent example of the style.

M: Mouthfeel is okay, theres a bit more carbonation, and the body is a bit to watery.

O: Its not an awful stout, but comparatively there are just many more complex and more enjoyable examples of the style at similar price points. Pick up if you are new to the style, if you aren't, this will be a disappointment to you.
