Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with a thin tan head that dissipates to patchy foam and a thin ring around the glass that leaves light lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate; slightly vegetal. Flavor is also toasted and biscuit malt, chocolate and coffee with some slight dark fruit notes. An interesting mixture of toasted and malted milk ball malt flavors and some light grassy hops and a hint of char in the finish. Medium bodied with light creaminess and peppery carbonation. A very nice oatmeal stout with the rich body and dense flavor saturation that seem to come with well made oatmeal stouts. There is an atypical but pleasant maltiness in the finish that kept me interested. Nice, as expected from this brewer.

On tap into a 4oz sampler glass @ the brewery. Pours an opaque black w/ a minimal tan head.

Aroma leads off with chocolate and dark roasted malt

Taste is a blend of chocolate, dry dark roasted malt and coffee. Some faint dark fruit and caramel notes. Great balance of flavors, nothing overdone or out of sync.

Mouthfeel is smooth and dry, medium-bodied, balanced. Like drinking a chocolate milkshake.

Overall a nicely crafted imperial stout.
