12oz bottle thanks to thebigredone. Poured into Founders snifter.
A- Pours an opaque dark brown with a thin creamy mocha brown head that recedes to pretty much no head and leaves some spotty lacing.
S- Oatmeal, creamy dark chocolate, licorice, roasted malts. About average aroma strength. Not overly sweet, licorice and dark chocolate balance decently together.
T- Black licorice, dark chocolate, finishes with a roasted malt taste with lingering dark chocolate and a little bit of oatmeal. Nice balance and decent complexity.
M- Medium bodied, fairly carbonated, easy drinkability.
O- Decent overall oatmeal stout. Dominated a little bit more by licorice then I prefer and could have been a tad sweeter, but overall definitely enjoyable. Nothing that really stands out, but I would have this again although probably not seek it out. I recommend giving it a try.
