Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Big dark walnut brown, nearly black, opaque as all night hints at some deep purple like colors a bit on the edge too. Head is creamy and frothy big, grabbing easily four fingers and cascading nicely down the glass. Clumps and chunks rule the roost with some good light mocha brown color, and big swiss cheese appearances. Real big, and aggressive but not out of control.

Real nice hints of milky chocolate, a little bit of leafy mint hop it seems which is kind of unusual, and chewy cookie like malt qualities. Hints of a thick brew to come perhaps but just a real solid aroma.

Palate comes real nice and simple. Deep great roasting qualities with milky milk chocolate tones in the mid palate. Dense controlled finish, and good chocolate sweetness even more so on the finish. Hints of some light leaf and tea like bitterness just a hint, mixing perfectly with a good creamy mouthfeel. Mild sense of fruity tones, but not really distinct or peaking out amongst some hop tolerable astringency. A small twinge of acrid sourness just hits a little though after some time, but luckily not huge or too of putting.

Overall a good solid oatmeal stout for sure with some decent qualities.

I really enjoyed this beer, but for 5.9% it leaves something to be desired. I've had beers twice as strong and twice as smooth. The mouthfeel is a bit rough for a stout. Tastes good but its not anything incredible. Artwork is by far the coolest i've ever seen.

Tastes like a much bigger beer than 5.90%. Nice of Three Floyds to not hop this beer to hell.

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