12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a big creamy tan head that retains well and lace the glass a little.

The aroma is sweet roasty chocolate malt and oatmeal.

The flavor is sweet chocolate malt, some acidic roast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a solid oatmeal stout.

This one just did not work for me. I'd like to say there is a smokiness, but it is more ashy to me. I like that it is dry, but there is very little of interest in the flavor

Nice oatmeal stout. Zero info on bottle? No date, abv? Great tasting stout. Not much on the nose.
