Poured into a snifter. Very dark, as I would have expected. Minimal foam.
Wooo, smells of chocolate liquor. Chocolate, coffee, little whiskey...big ass oatmeal stout, of course it has a big ass aroma.
It's tasty. But it comes off a little sweet for me. Licorice, mocha, sweetness. These big Southern Tier beers are all sweet, of course....but sometimes they skew a little sweeter than I expect, sometimes they are spot on. I think it's all a matter of what kind of mood I'm in. I can drink this today.
Typical oatmeal stout mouthfeel nailed. They must have used high-quality oats here, and copious quantities of them.
Worth noting that mom, who claims to not like beer, said she could drink this, when I made her take a taste. It's funny how someone who supposedly hates beer always likes the beer I have her taste. But anyway - just like the other big Southern Tier stouts, this one's got some crossover appeal.
