16 oz. pint poured at the brewery, unknown brewing/packaging date, drank over 30 minutes

A: 3/3 - jet black, low clarity (cannot read or see through), initial frothy khaki colored head settled into a 1/4 finger lacing, tight carbonation bubbles, moderate alcohol legs

S: 9/12 - big roasted malts - chocolate, coffee and burnt toast, slight PNW hop character and oatmeal; muted alcohols; no diacetyl, no DMS

T: 15/20 - moderate bitterness on the front of the tongue that succumbs to a rich roasted malt character that compliments the aroma; these flavors continue on the late palate with some warming alcohol and oats; finishes dry and inviting

M: 4/5 - moderate body, creaminess, moderate carbonation

O: 8/10 - very good oatmealt stout and one of the underrated surprises from my TG trip; would have liked some more body and malt complexity but that's starting to get nit picky; highly recommended for the cheap price point ($4.50/pint)
