Thanks to boxcar01 for this extra....
Poured from the 12oz bottle into my heavy bottomed pint glass. Color is black with mahogany on the edges. A vigorous pour brings out a 1/4" of tan head that fades quickly to just a skimming. Thin wispy lacing.
Smell is dominated by a coffee like roastiness. There's some milk chocolate in there as well. Simple smell, but well done.
Taste is a little more complex. Roasted coffee beans are the strongest flavor. The chocolate mixes in nicely, although I wouldn't mind it being stronger. The beer finishes with a nice dark fruit flavor.
Body is on the thin side for style but doesn't detract too much. Carbonation is good, with a fairly slick mouthfeel. Finish is a little sweet. Flavor doesn't last too long on the palate. A good beer no doubt, not sure I'd advertise the chocolate part. Maybe just call it an oatmeal stout and let the drinker discover the chocolate.

Tyranena Down 'N Dirty Chocolate Oatmeal Stout.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a CBS snifter. Served chilled...
A) Deep dark brown... A nice little tan head, that settles down to wispy patches. Some traction on the snifter here.
S) A good amount of roasted malt, some chocolate, and a little coffee with a splash of cream.
T) The flavor also provided a whole lot of roast, just a little chocolate. You get the oatmeal. I found this to be pretty bitter on the backend. I would have like a little more sweetness in the flavor.
M) Medium body with mild carbonation. Pretty smooth feel, but could have been a little more supple.
O) Pretty good.... I could see how this would do well with some barrel aging. Too bad I didn't score a bottle.
