12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass at Caddyshanks in Orlando.

Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Sweet and bready oats, toasted, roasted, chocolate, a little smoke, and some earthy notes.

Taste: You pick up molasses noted in the taste in top of everything else with some slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, little to medium bodied, a little bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty solid oatmeal stout. Surprised to see it here in Orlando, but happy to have found it.

Not a bad brew, there's a slight burnt smell upon first sniff, but it's not off putting. It goes down well, and is very sessionable. Overall, it's an A-.

A 12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker pint glass.

Appearance - Pitch black color. Big, lumpy, course, tan head. Awesome stickage.

Smell - Toasted malt. Slightly sweet aroma. A whiff of herbs.

Taste - Toasted malt. Taffy. Chocolate. Mild black licorice. A touch buttery. The hops are almost nonexistent.

Mouth - A bit oily. Good carbonation. A brew with a presence.

Overall - Big and bold with a slightly bitter finish. Dark yet chugable. Another great California ale!
