This may just be the blackest beer I’ve ever had. It pours blacker than tar, and like tar, it was completely impervious to light: no photons made it through this baby—reflection city… A brown head of fairly long lasting foam rode across the top, lacing a bit. The hops could be teased out of the nose a little, but the malts captured most of that sense. The primary aroma was not at all unlike canned Hershey’s Cocoa Powder: the kind my mom used to bake with, not the kind you can mix into chocolate milk. The nose even smelled powdery. The medium full body was pretty roasty, with lots of coffee bean flavors and bitter chocolate to boot. A mellow, subtle sweetness lingered underneath a fairly assertive bitterness all through the glass. Obviously some warmth magnified the malty aspects of this stout, pushing the sweetness forward and bringing the beer more into balance with the bitterness. Neither flavor ever really became assertive, letting the beer create kind of a boring memory of itself: just an aftertaste of slight bitterness and slight roastiness to go along with the finish that thinned out more than I’d have liked. I’m all for balance, and I think this beer achieved that relatively rare attribute (rare for American beers), but at the expense of character. I really couldn’t find too much complexity or flavors of interest. Still, it was a solid beer and one I’d drink again.

Creamy sweetness upon first wash of the palate. Slight bitterness more prevalent at tip and along back of tongue as it warms and you drink more of it. A bit thinner than anticipated. Fantastic with grilled sausage. Overall a nice offering in the oatmeal variety. Very nice to see these ales making a comeback. Personal favorites.
