I like this brewer and their Oyster Stout is a great session stout.

Perfect last beer of the evening, and great with chocolate, cheesecake, dessert. I reached for a chocolate dunker as soon as I tasted, but not great for waistline!

A: Good looking, Black, tan head, quick to settle, abundant lace. 4
S: Big aroma of coffee, caramel, chocolate - and perhaps brandy. Definite sweetness outweighing a slight hoppy finish.
T: Dessert like with smoked flavors, mostly full flavored, sweet profile and a nice dry, long smokey finish. Definitely opens up as it warms, and definitely the last beer of the night.
M: Rich and creamy, very warming, long tickle.

D - This one started mid-pack but over a long session with it, I grew to find it outstanding.

Pours a rich and dark. If it's not completely black it may as well be because there are no hues and no edges. A thick creamy head of mocha colored foam graces the beer and lasts. leaves lace and plenty of bubbles to linger on top.

Nose is deep roast. Soft breaddiness with a caramel backing. Some bright dark fruits and a sweet bit of chocolate. There is a powerful vanilla on the nose but as fragrant as it is it does not dominate.

Taste is supple and full roast. Chocolate and a bit of nuttiness greets the palate. There's a surprisingly bright dark fruit. This malt is substantial and faintly acrid. There is a smoothness to the flavors form the vanilla which is light on the palate. Creamy full mouthfeel with a touch of it's weight from alcohol. The alcohol is a light warmth as this one finishes bitter with a only a small measure of the sweetness to linger.

Bold as brass!
