4.28/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. bottle agressively poured into a tulip pint. Dark almost black body with a thick, frothy light brown head. Excellent retention and a ton of thick lacing spread throughout the glass.

Very pleasant aroma. Heavily roasted, almost charcoal tinged malts with chocolate and coffees. Light touch of floral hoppiness, vanilla, and lactose.

Flavor is chocolate dominant, which combines with the oats and lactose to give it almost a chocolate milk like flavor. Discrete hint of nuttiness from the oats. Slight touch of bitter char combined with bitter dark chocolate and a barely detectable hoppy bitterness give it a nice, dry finish.

Medium-full body thanks to the oats. A fairly high carbonation, but it still feels soft, creamy, and velvety.

Overall, this is a wonderful beer. Excellent both stylistically and overall.
