355ml bottle into nonic pint. "H144 09:22" printed on the bottle. consumed on feb. 22, 2015

a: a deep ruby that's hard to see through but definitely not opaque. two fingers of light brown head

s: good roast aroma with dark chocolate and raisins. hints of coffee

t: rich roasted/burnt malt, toast, cocoa, sweet raisins, prunes, bitter black coffee, slight milk chocolate. roasty all around and just so full of flavour. excellent

m: in between light-to-medium-bodied, a bit thin but not watery. mild carbonation. dry finish

o: an incredible stout with a very strong roast character

Have come to the conclusion that I really enjoy the oatmeal stouts. This is a fantastic beer that I would highly recommend.

From bottle at Rattle n Hum, NYC. A pleasant surprise. This oatmeal stout was preceded by a Founders Breakfast & helds it's own. The aroma was a bit more funky compared to the from the tap Founders, but that is to be expected. Bottom line: this is a damn good stout.

I've had better stouts. This one smells better than it tastes and feels. Kind of watery.

From a bottle. There is minimal head after an aggressive pour. Jet black color. Minimal lacing. Good taste. Solid stout. Would buy again.
