12 oz bottle poured into a nonic.

Pours nearly pitch black with a half finger of mocha foam. Aroma is full of dark chocolate, with a bit of toffee and a hint of black licorice.

First sip is full bodied and full of sweet roasted malt flavor, without any roasted bitterness. Hops are moderate, yet subdued and really take a back seat to the creamy malt sweetness. There is a slightly hoppy/bitter bite on the finish that helps to round the beer out and temper the sweetness.

I like this beer a lot, I'll certainly keep an eye out to purchase again.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Snifter.

Appearance: Pitch black with thick tan head and nice lacing rings.

Smell: Oats, molasses and strong roasted notes, but not too much chocolate or coffee. Somewhat chalky aroma.

Taste: Heavily roasted with oats, bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Some spicy hops notes but that is secondary to the roast. Some lingering smoke, molasses and maybe even a hint of pine or citrus.

Feel: Extremely smooth and creamy. Full bodied, low carbonation with a finish that dries up just enough. Slightly warming. Fantastic mouthfeel.

Overall: Exceedingly good, strong Oatmeal Stout. I am simply blown away, especially considering the availability and price.
