A - Pitch Black and opaque with a lighter colored creamy head, moderate lacing, and moderate carbonation.
S - Notes of bread, grain, and roasted malt. Faint hints of coffee.
T - Superb. Starts slightly bitter with serious oaty taste; soon after the taste expands to coffee, mocha, and deep malt.
M - Somewhat thin and dry. Leaves the pallete with a mild aftertaste, but still very clean.
D - Tremendous drinkability. This beer is not too bitter, and not too sweet. It goes down smooth and clean. The ABV isn't only slightly over 5% leaving it extremely sessionable.
I may seem biased towards this beer, but thats only because I am biased towards this beer. It is one of my all time favorite beers and will, undoubtably, continue to be throughout my life. For me, it defines the Oatmeal stout genre and gives me a point of refrence for reviewing other similar stouts. Try it- its extraordinary.
