Thanks to Pitasoup for this bottle.
A - Deep, dark brow, almost black. Thick, creamy head, leaving almost no lacing down the glass.
S - Subtle hint of coffee and dutch cocoa. Very malty aroma, you can almost smell the mash.
T - Very dry. Roasty malts quickly sweetened by the oatmeal, taking the rough edge off. Subtle flavors here, ever so slightly tannic. Could use a touch more oatmeal to mute this.
M - Absolutely perfect for the beer. Creamy, with enough carbonation to keep it interesting.
O - Great beer!! This has been a top want for quite some time, and it didn't disappoint. Just a great beer.
