A slightly late to develop cascading light-to-medium brown colored densely packed frothy lush head... Excellent retention... The head turns richer and creamier as it begins to settle a bit... The color is not black, but rather a deep rich mahogany brown that allows some light to leak in around the edges... Mostly still with just a stray carbonation streak here and there... Sheets of lacing cling to the sides of the glass... The nose is spot on for the style... Roasted malt... Coffee... Milk chocolate... The three aromas ebb and flow in prominence, but never completely disappear... The palate is exactly as expected... Brownie batter... Roasted malts... Baker's chocolate... Simple, straight forward and uber effective... Sturdy and medium bodied... Lightly carbonated... A bit chewy... Lush and sleek... Goes down easily sip after sip... This is a rock solid teetering on world class Oatmeal Stout... Tons of character and depth for a modest 5.2% ABV...

I wish I could enjoy this beer, flavors were lacking. Again, would I try this again on tap...Maybe. I would give it another chance.
