Pours the deepest brown you've ever seen, basically black in the middle with a bit of dark-brown shining through the edges. Frothy, creamy looking light-tan colored head, decent retention and minimal lacing. Nose hits with a handful of malts, nuts, roasted grains, charred wood, and a heavy dose of oats and oatmeal. The taste follows the nose perfectly, allowing for great harmony and exemplary synthesis of the senses. Full of a nice, roasted character of malts and grains, complete with some caramel sweetness. Woody and nutty flavors shine through about halfway through, and the oat/oatmeal hints are abundant throughout the entire length of the sip, in an over-the-top, good way. Very creamy, medium body, with a middle of the road type of carbonation.
I know I may slightly be overrating this beer, but I don't care. I love it. It's full flavored, and there's something about the taste I just love - oats, grains, malts, wood, nuts. And the best part is, at only 5.2% ABV, it's very easy to drink, making it the best session beer I could ask for.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.
Pours a clear dark black with 1-2 fingers of cloudy head falling slowly to a creamy collar leaving lots of lacing. There is a nice nose, not huge but present reminiscent of dark chocolate, toasted and dark roasted grains. The taste follows suit but lso brings a pleasing bread character and lots of creamy oats. There is a big body considering the meager 5.2% ABV with nicve carbonation resultant in a smooth creamy mouthfeel. There is great depth to the poet!
