look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Pitch black with no light around the edges and a finger of tan head that reduces to nothing in short order. It smells great with notes of chocolate, oatmeal, toasted oats, rum soaked raisins, and clean malts. The taste is alcoholic throughout with sweet malts, burnt toast, bitter hops, and plum. It has a medium body and leaves an alcohol burn at the end.
Serving type: on-tap

4.21/5 rDev +2.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Jet Black, motor oil with a frappy chocolatey head that had very poor retention (whiddled down to essentially a few bubbles and a little filmy texture at top) within 1 minute of the pour. Minimal lacing.
Smell: Coffee, dark chocolate, oats, malt, rum raisin, vanilla, just about in that order of potency.
Taste: Chocolate/coffee at the tip of the taste but you are immediately blasted with a overpowering malt that almost overdoes it but manages to sit back just in time to enjoy some of the subtler notes and after tastes of vanilla, chocolate, rum soaked raisins, and of course oatmeal. Even a bit hoppy in the middle there, actually quite complex of a mid taste.
Mouthfeel: For the gravity of the beer as it seemed throughout the pour, I was surprised that it was a little light in the mouth, not nearly as syrupy as I expected and this worked tremendously.
Overall: Very well done, complex stout that you will enjoy tremendously.
Serving type: nitro-bottle

4.28/5 rDev +4.1%

Super dense black hue with a dense gorgeous brown head. The head ebbed quietly by and left light lacing.
The aroma is creamy like a milk stout, with some lactose like scent. The oat is prevalent and I detect chocolate, caramel and toffee, coffee and roast.
The flavor follows the nose to a tee. Nough said.
The feel is thick and full, smooth and velvety. The ABV is said to be nearly 11 pct but Damn I don't feel it.
This is my bread and butter, so I may be a bit eschew, but I absolutely fell in love with this.
