Thanks to ericwo for knocking off this want with our recent swap!

Hey! A black pour with a light, 1-finger head.

I get a good shot of hops in the nose that goes along with chocolate and espresso notes. Very pleasant.

Bitter hops, chocolate and coffee notes with a sweet finish. This is a nice, take it home to mother kind of stout. It doesn't really change as it warm... nothing is peeking out behind the chocolate and hops.

Very smooth with terrific carbonation. This is another stout that doesn't push any envelopes with the style but it's still enjoyable because of the bitter hops. I was glad to try it but don't need to revisit in the future.

22-oz bomber to tulip. Traded for in Seattle at the end of May 2013. Consumed 8-16-2013.

Oily appearance in the first ounces of the pour. Opaque body except at the edge, which is dark brown / ruby. 1-finger tan head dissipates completely, lacing patchy. Tons of rising carbonation.

Very strong roasted barley malts, oats, lactose sugar, light notes of grass / hay.

The roasted malts impart an acrid bitterness immediately out of the bottle, but this eases with each sip. The higher alcohol content is noticeable. There's chocolate later, with citrusy bitterness in the aftertaste. There's nohing extraordinary going on. This is a typical stout, wth medium carbonation and medium creamy body from the addition of the oats. For this abv, I prefer the taste of Ipswich much more, but this is definitely serviceable. A good example of the style, hence the generous rankings in taste and mouthfeel.

Roasty malts and bitter chocolates are revealed by the aroma. Deep impenetrable black body holds a firm thumb thick and lasting mocha head. Fore is full of bitter baker’s chocolate and roasty malts. There is a bit of smooth and creamy roundness from the oats, but this isn’t your standard sweet stout. It’s much bigger and more bitter...an fairly big Stout really.
