12 ounce bottle -> New Belgium globe glass

A - pours a rich obsidian black with a one finger tan colored head, some retention, and some lacing left.

S - chocolate, coffee, charcoal

T - There is a chocolately, toffee sweetness present balanced by a finish that is roasted coffee, a bit smokey with a charcoal note present.

M - average thick, average carbonation, a slight bitter aftertaste

O - pretty nice offering. More of a stout than a porter in my opinion.

Thanks to Wil for this one! Love the nostalgic name.
Bottled: 082313

Creamy smooth from the oats, mellow roast malt aftertaste. A compact layer of stained parchment foam that settles briefly, leaving behind a thin broken skim and spotty lacing. Flavors of carob and unsweetened milk chocolate, dark roast coffee. Slight lingering bitterness. Light toasted bready malt aroma. Flavorful but mellow and sessionable at the same time.

A - pours nearly black with a nice finger of thick mocha colored head. Retention is so so, only a thin outer ring remains after two minutes, lacing isn't sticking much at all.

S - rosary malts, Smokeyness and a rich underlying cocoa nib aroma.

T - lots of smokey rosary malts up front with sweet chocolate kicking in a but through the finish. Toasty smoke is the dominant flavor throughout (aftertaste as well).

M - perhaps a bit too much carbonation, not quite as thick and silky as I'd like.

O - not bad at all but Smokeyness and carbonationay be a bit strong. Not really getting any oat flavors
