12 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown with about an inch and a half tan head after a somewhat aggressive pour. Lacing and head retention are both good. Aroma is roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, coffee and oats. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, but with the addition of a bit of a nutty taste. Also, there's a good balance between the sweet and bitter flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy with light/moderate carbonation. Drinkability is pretty good, it's very easy to drink. Not a bad choice as an occasional session beer. I liked this brew, and would definitely buy it again.

A: dark brown, sort of very dark burgundy when held to light & reasonably bright and clear for its darkness. Small to medium tan head that settles with reasonable speed to a skim that retains well and leaves curtains of lace.

S: Nutty malts, toasty and creamy oatmeal (hint of lactose ?), crystal malt sweetness, touch of dark bread, soft hint of vague hops, and a good bit of roast. Good hint of fruit that is surprisingly light for sucha dark beer – almost peachy.

T: Nice open of oatmeal, nutty malts, malty & oatmeal sweetness, & just a hint of scorched caramel. The middle smoothly transitions to roasty grain – firmly rather than darkly roasty. Bittersweet cocoa, chicory, over-backed raisin cookies (the browned edges & crispy raisin bits). The roast lingers into the end & finish and is joined by softly resiny and slightly minty hops with good bitterness.

M: Just slight bit over medium body with softly under-matched carbonation that is finely textured. Smooth, soft, and fairly creamy. Okay amount of chewy dextrins and some sticky sugars. A bit sweet most of the way, but the end eventually does go drying with lots of roast.

D: Superbly balanced & rounded and quite rich. Firm stout character with great oatmeal flair that is accented well by hop aspect. This is a nice & tasty beer. Very easy and pleasant to drink.
