Pint pour into tumbler at Monk's Cafe, Philadelphia.
A- Very deep mahogany, not quite black, with a brown half finger dwindling head. Stays at a ring, with no lacing.
S- Smoky coffee, a slight chocolate end, with no noticeable hop aroma.
T- Smoky coffee again, rather mild. Again, no hop.
M- Rather light and clean for an Oatmeal, but a good drinker. This could be a beefy session ale.
O- Was hoping for a thicker feel, coming from an oatmeal. Also, the smokiness caught me a little off guard, but in a good way ( I like smoke). A nice and solid beer, but nothing too extraordinary.
Serving type: on-tap
