Appearance: A hard pour from the growler reveals a modest bubble show that creates an inch of tan foam - I know this would have been more impressive at the brewery; the liquid is coffee colored with tawny highlights at the edge

Smell: Caramel and chocolate

Taste: Caramel and chocolate, with vanilla building and a hint of dark fruit; some earthy hop bitterness in the back end and, perhaps, a little coffee in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; rather creamy

Overall: A very nice oatmeal stout, with rich flavor and a very nice mouthfeel

Thanks, SDDLSK, for the opportunity

Poured from a growler dated 1/8/16; into a pint glass.
Appearance - very dark, but not completely black, almost like a cup of coffee with milk. Thin tan head that leaves scattered lacing along the back of the glass.
Smell - subtle chocolate milk and mild coffee notes.
Taste - this reminds me of a glass of chocolate milk blended with a roasted, malty stout; there's hints of vanilla after it sits.
Feel - medium body; creamy and silky; easy drinker!
Overall - very tasty, smooth, creamy, well crafted stout!

Rich oat and coffee roast aroma. Flavor is roasty and oaty, with a coffee bitter finish. They really nail the oat presence, and the roast is nicely done.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #68 (Spetember 2012):

LOOK: Almost black, thick tan head, showy lacing

SMELL: Caramel, dark berries, creamed dark roast coffee, mild chocolate

TASTE: Very creamy, silky fullish body, brown bread, oat sweetness, black berries, loaf of bread, balanced hops, mild bitterness, carob, chicory bite, semi-sweet finish

Bordering on the sublime, the richness and full flavor does not get in the way of quaffing this one back. Oats play well, perhaps the perfect amount as they don’t weight down the beer but you know it is there. Easily makes drinking beer fun, excellent job.

Growler fill poured into a FW snifter.

Growler filled on 12/20/12, consumed with the BIL's while smoking a prime rib for Christmas dinner. A difficult task in the 10 degree weather.

An aggressive pour yields a 1.5 finger head. It recedes to a thin collar with some soapy spots forming along the surface. Color is a cloudy brown, deep mahogany on the edges.

Smell is full of deep chocolate, some toffee, and coconut. There's a nutty earthiness and some roast. It finishes with a hint of sweet vanilla.

Taste is deep roasted coffee and chocolate. There's a nice bit of bitterness that is balanced by the same sweet finish found on the nose. A nice overall flavor that I am really enjoying sip after sip.

This beer feels like an imperial. Definitely the most impressive part of this Oatmeal Stout. It's chewy and runs amok across the palate. Well done.

Overall, I am impressed by this offering. This was my first brew from LB, but I look forward to trying more.

Two fingers of tan head, pitch black colored body.
Great smell of coffee and chocolate and roasted malt.
Taste has a fair bitter element to it, with a creamy background, bits of chocolate and coffee too.
Soft and creamy texture, low carbonation and a thick body.
An amazing oatmeal stout. A top example.
