Poured into glassware (used by my grandfather - picked up in Germany in the mid 50's, kinda like a water glass with a logo on it); thick tan head that is slow to recess. Leaves rings around the glass. The beer is black as midnight.

Smell is roasted malt, coffee and burnt wood. Notes of chocolate, maple oatmeal, and faint whiffs of grilled pineapple.

Initial taste is crisp, with a firm handshake of french roast coffee, vanilla oatmeal, cream, and pine. Chewy mouthfeel that finishes dry with the hops making an appearance.

A very tasty oatmeal stout that is a nice change up to the Hopslam and SN Torpedo I had earlier. I enjoyed the typical stout flavors matched by a surprising crispiness. At 5.2% this could be a great winter session beer when hankering for a stout. East to drink and more then worthy to drink.
