Chilled bottle into a glass. A generous extra from Goblinmunkey7. Thanks, Joey!

A: Pours a very dark brown: it's opaque in the center, with some edge translucence. A small mocha cap of foam develops and vanishes into a few bubbles on the periphery of the glass.

S: Dark chocolate, coffee, mild notes of pine and earth. Not a standout, but it's serviceable as a coffee stout. I don't know if this is really brewed with oatmeal, but it doesn't exude much of a grainy aroma.

T: This is on the sweeter side, with a syrupy chocolate flavor dominating the coffee. The effect immediately reminds me of Southern Tier's Jah-va, though this isn't quite as treacly. The pine notes of the nose contribute a restrained hoppiness to the flavor, with some crushed vanilla bean hints on the back end.

M: The body is smooth on the front end, suggesting oatmeal really was used here. Creamy carbonation, though it leaves a slightly prickle on the tongue after a swallow. The finish falls off quickly, and it borders on watery there.

O: This isn't bad at all, but it's hard to get excited about this when I've got Velvet Merlin as a local alternative. Plus, Founders Breakfast Stout beats this in every category.
