Chose this over black-heart because of the crazy awesome label art. I love 3-F's creative designs.

A - Deep dark brown/black color. Pours thick with khaki colored creamy head with good lacing.

S - Lots of hops at the beginning which I wasn't expecting but came out pretty good. After warming the malt and roasted tones came out along and then the sweet grainy smell that goes with an oatmeal stout.

T - Tons flavor having a robust character with a malty, roasty, chocolaty, and some like toffee/caramel taste along with some hops on the back end. There is some bitterness from the roasted malt and hops but is pretty balanced with the sweetness.

M - Full mouth-feel with moderate to low carbonation. Silky feel and a nice bitterness that makes it a great beer for occasional drinking.

Overall, this oatmeal stout is different than your standard "Samuel Smith" and it is pretty delicious. It isn't as heavy as a RIS and it is a tasty brew. It has everything for the dark beer drinker who likes a little american hops in there. It's also a nice change of pace if you are used to drinking dry stouts like Guinness. I would strongly recommend this to anyone that likes darker beer.

On tap at Studio 35 Columbus. Nice change of pace beer in between all the other hoppy pales from 3Floyds.

Nothing special, best quality was the thickness from the oatmeal

Has a light coffee nose sweetened with dark sugars and seasoned with a hint of cinnamon and a whiff of chocolate.
It pours dark brilliant brown with a fluffy 1” tan cap.
The attack begins with chocolate, coffee, and big spicy grain flavors. Although malt driven, very well rounded.
A creamy, silky smooth chewy body has a touch of slickness and oiliness.
