I drank this from a pint glass...
The beer almost jumped out of the bottle when I opened it the color is opaqui dark brown, there was a lot of sediment in the bottle and in the glass, the head was huge light brown and was huge. It smells of roasted, dry, dark chocolate with a tmall amount of sourness. The taste has some dark fruits, molasses, dark chocolate, and a roasted bitterness. It feels thick, warming, and slightly dry. I cant help but think that there's something wrong with this bottle. I need to try it again, there were clumps of foamy sediment and the smell and taste was a little off.

a - Pours a dark black color with an inch of tan head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of coffee, sweet chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, and dark fruit. Quite enjoyable.

t - Tastes of bitter chocolate, alcohol, cocoa, roasted malts, and coffee. A step down from the smell and heavy on the bitter chocolate and coffee.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty smooth and creamy. I wish it was a little more carbonated.

d - A pretty drinkable oatmeal stout that is heavy on bitter chocolate in the taste. I enjoyed the smell but wish it had been more carbonated. Would be willing to try again.
