Scored this via Let's Pour. Inky black with a densely packed and well-retaining dark tan head. Chocolate, molasses, and coffee all intrigue the nose. Big roasty malt complexity also includes some smoke and burnt toast. Black licorice, smoky, dark toast, and espresso all making their presence known all the palette. Bitterness is medium-high. Hop flavors seem secondary here though perhaps a bit earthy. Medium-full in body, slight creaminess is notable and pleasant. Carbonation seems appropriate for the style and is moderate/moderate-low. Overall this is a rich, roasty beer with deeply hued dark malt bill atop a luxurious lush silky body. Well done.

This poured out as a thick black color with a thin tan head on top. The retention is thin, but the lacing is sticky. The smell of the beer is slightly hoppy, roasted and malty. The taste of the beer has a pretty strong bitterness, lots of dry chocolatey roasted malt. The mouthfeel is thick, nicely carbonated with a dry finish. Overall this is a pretty good brew.

22oz bomber

Appearance- Thin caramel colored head and onyx black, lacing down the glass

Smell- Coffee and chocolate hits big on the first sniff, toasted but good sweet notes

Taste- chocolatey from the get go, the bitterness hits mid and back mouth but not before a caramel malt comes in

Mouthfeel- full body, carbonated tingle and wet finish

Overall- a very nice stout, one for the books. This thing is made to chew on for dessert.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this

Appearance: Dark brown, hazy, with an unexpected amount of sediment - small, off-white head - fades to a tiny cap, leaves a few spots of lacing

Smell: Roasty and sweet - serious and obvious oatmeal aroma, perhaps more than the average oatmeal stout - some malty, oat, and caramel sweetness - chocolate and coffee notes

Taste: Roasty, dryness, and oats - dark chocolate, burnt chocolate malts, and semisweet chocolate - a distinct oat flavor - some caramel and molasses-like sweetness - sharp, bitter finish - some hints of coffee

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely smooth thanks to the oats, nicely carbonated

Overall: Apparently not brewed with actual teeth

This is a solid oatmeal stout. Not the best I've ever had, but the oats are used quite well. Sadly not as memorable as some of the Elysian pumpkin beers.
