Served from a chilled bottle into a pint glass, it appears much like coffee dark roast, with a robust tannish, chocolate-milky-head (lacing) that sticks to the glass nicely as it dissipates. A grainy, roasted malt on the nose, along with some toasted peanuts or almonds, and maybe a bit of smoke actually (beechnut). Flavor is mostly mild and sweet with a roasty grainy flavor coming first and backed by a smokey beechwood flavor toward the finish that tends to stick around as the aftertaste. Maybe a bit of chocolate malt as well tasted. Body is medium (at most) with a nice balance; maybe a bit more carbonation, but actually for a stout is right on point. Fairly drinkable and as drinkable as most stouts are. I was hoping for a bit more of the "oatmeal" flavor, but overall I like this one.
