Poured into a pint glass at 47 degrees. I have been wanting to try this beer, I finally found it.
Appearance: A half finger head that has fair retention; furthermore, the head is creamy and foamy. The color of the head is medium tan color and a few laces cling to the glass. The color of the beer is dark mahogany with a dark reddish hue. The clarity of the beer is opaque. A few carbonation bubble are visible on the side of the glass. The beer looks great, would have like to seen a more resilient head.
Nose: A very rich roasted malt profile with some burnt, toasty, and caramel notes. A subtle note of floral esters, wood and oatmeal. Other minor aromas chocolate and molasses like note. The smell of the beer is wonderful
Taste: A very rich roast on the malts giving off burnt, toasty, and light caramel note. Other flavors are floral esters, wood, oatmeal, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of sweetness (molasses like).
The mouth feel of the beer is coating, carbonated, and slightly astringent.
Overall: The body of the beer is medium thick and the finish is medium. This is a very roasty toasty brew good flavors. The only complaint I see is there needs to be more oatmeal. Most Oatmeal beer that I drink are a bit more complex, tad creamy and smoother. Good beer nonetheless.
