3.43/5 rDev -9.7%
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass
A- pours black with a fluffy, two finger light tan head. Head isn't very thick and doesn't stick around for awhile, very disappointing
S- lots of chocolate coming through, with a little bit of light coffee. Delightful
T- very sweet chocolate, a little bit of oyster flavor. Interesting if nothing else
M- absolutely paper thin. No body at all. Vastly disappointing
O- it is what it is, though I guess it's on me for expecting anything other then average from Harpoon

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a tulip.
A: Very dark brown. Pours a slight, bubbly, brown-white head. Dissipates quickly, leaving merely a beer ring. Very slight lacing mostly retreats quickly into the body of the brew.
S: Hearty malt, oak, smoke, and dark chocolate.
T: Oatmeal-y malt goodness, unsweetened dark chocolate, a little woodi-ness, and a slight bit of tang.
M: Grainy, full body, with a bit of pungent finish.
D: Sip and enjoy.
Atmosphere is pretty good. Dark hue, with only a slight head, and minute lacing. Nose is malty and woody, complimented with the subtle teasing of unsweetened dark chocolate. Flavor is oatmeal, with unsweetened chocolate, and wood. A bit tangy in the finish. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

Light, thin, creamy white head. Dark brown body.
The nose is dry, bitter and minerally. That's probably what they are going for here.
Flavor is smooth and coating, but also tart and minerally. Roasty it is, but not overly so. More balanced and (fairly) light than I would expect a stout to be.
Mouthfeel is light, slick, low carb.
Interesting and different. It's good, but not crazy good.
