Jet black, not a lot of head going on here. Very roasted nose with licorice and molasses scents up front. First sip comes across very smooth; big time oatmeal graininess, dark roast coffee, anise, very little hop bitterness. Carbonation is appropriate but almost seems a touch too much; a little smoother would have been nicer. All in all a good oatmeal stout, just surprisingly heavy on the licorice and anise undertones.
