A - pours black with a thin brown head made of tiny bubbles that dissipates quickly.

S - some chocolate, some coffee, oats, and some ash.

T - beautiful balance of coffee and chocolate. Somje bitterness on the finish.

M - I really like this mouthfeel. It's not too thin/not too thick.

O - really great stout.

Appearance: Black as night
Smell: Coffee and roasted malts
Taste: My God this is wonderful. Coffee upfront, followed by a smooth dark chocolate flavor, with roasted malts and slight hops on the finish. Perfect mouth feel, not too thin, but you're still able to take a large drink.
Bottom line: this is one of my favorite beers of all time. It is what it says it is. Coffee Chocolate Oatmeal Stout.
