Bottle shared by Curran last night.

Pours dark black, with a off-white foamy head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like dark chocolate, intense roast, smoke, and some espresso.

This is a quite dark and burnt tasting oatmeal stout, and like. Roasted, almost burnt malt, smoke, a bit of ash, roasted coffee, and dark chocolate all play together, and shine pretty brightly considering the 5.9% ABV. Three Floyds packs a lot of flavor in here for the lower ABV.

This is medium bodied, with a creamy, grainy mouthfeel, and a medium level of carbonation.

This is a pretty nice oatmeal stout, definitely enjoyed it.

Does this have some smoked malts in it? No sweetness, dry, chocolate and some roasted qualities. It's ok.

Had this on 2014-12-04 in Clarksville, IN from a bottle.

A - Dark brown with a light brown 1-finger firm head with good lace.

S - Semi-sweet chocolate, touch of coffee, sweet mocha.

T - Sweet Ovaltine in milk while eating a graham cracker at first, and then char and dark chocolate tastes come into play. Finishes with a touch of sourness, medicinal spice, more chocolate bitterness and a satisfyingly dry finish.

M - Medium-heavy body and light carbonation. Smooth like chocolate milk.

O - Never had a beer quite like this. Enjoyed it.
