Poured this beer into a Stout Glass. The beer poured almost black with a very nice amber color where the light passed through the shallow edges. The head was a solid two fingers high and a deep tan color. The head also had good representation of lacing. A bold malt aroma with a hint of tobacco made my taste buds anxiously awaiting the first draw from the glass. The tast was that of a bold oatmeal stout. A very smooth full flavored beer that made me want to drink some more. This beer goes down smooth and has a pleasant after taste. The label is a nice touch paying homage to a great story. This is a great beer to pair with great friends and a great steak. I would highly recommend this beer and I look forward to buying more.

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.
