4.3/5  rDev +15.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a 16 oz snifter. Pours a slick black with a two inch brown head, that leaves behind plenty of lace.

Smell is grainy oats, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, molasses, and toffee.

Taste follows the nose beautifully, maybe a little roastier than the nose would have you think, really nice.

Body is medium, plenty of carbonation, a smidge dry as it should be, and drinks easy, but appears larger than 7.2%.

Overall this is really nice, well done!

Jet black in color with an inch thick tightly packed khaki colored head. Impenetrable to light. Good head retention. Aroma of dark roasted barley,coffee, and chocolate. Bitter taste of dark roasted barley blends well with pine like hops. There's a bit of sweetness that comes out in that is similar to a mocha type of taste that comes out in the back of the palate. The mouth is creamy and slightly oily.

Beautiful dark body pitch black, light tan head looks great in my glass. Big light cocoa colored head flowing full on cloud texture, with light speckled lacing left behind. Aroma has some caramel notes, mild dark chocolate notes, hint of coffee accents. Flavor creamy dark chocolate, hint of butterscotch with dark fruit notes...plum and raisin finish. Dry finish dark almost charcoal dark roasted malt character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, dry finish a bit high on carbonation. Overall, I'm liking it but not as much as my initial gut number score.

12oz bottle, poured into snifter

A- pours pitch black in color with a small creamy khaki-colred head that reduces to a f ilm floating on top, leaving some lacing behind

S- smoky and roasted malt aroma with notes of hickory, charcoal & roasted walnut. Assertive coffee aroma gives some fruit berry-like notes. It closes out with some hoppy notes of citrus rind, pine needle and fresh cut grass

T- creamy roasted chocolate malt gives flavors of cocoa, coffee, campfire ash and toasted bread crust. Mid palate- becomes immediately dry, as citrus hop notes provide a tart bite, followed by piney hops. Fruity finish with more smoky malt on a dry linger

M- medium body with medium-low carbonation leads to a creamy-chewy mouthfeel and a silky smooth finish, high drinkability

O- assertive hop notes give this a bit of a twist from your standard stout. Overall quite enjoyable

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours pitch black, opaque in the glass with a thin light brown head with decent retention and light lacing. Nice aroma of dark toasted malt, vanilla, hints of chocolate and lactose. Flavor is sweet dark toasted malt, chocolate, hints of vanilla and coffee. An interesting dark molasses flavor develops in the finish which is dominated by dark sweet malt and a hint of hop bitterness. Nice creamy body. A nicely balanced and flavorful stout. I don't know if oats were used in this, but the body and flavor are positively reminiscent of oatmeal stouts. Nicely done. I enjoy this series every year.
