A: center-poured the shiny black beer into a tulip; finger of dark tan foam; modest lace motes trailed behind

S: roasted and chocolate malts predominate, creating a very mild espresso aroma

T: roasty, dry cocoa, coffee bean; bitter

M: smooth, creamy, medium-to-full body; bitter dry coating-feeling on finish

O: it's not that this stout does anything special, as much as this stout does everything well - a great oatmeal stout, creamy and smooth as you'd expect, with understated roast malt flavors.

Had this on 2012-10-28 in Lititz, PA at the Bull's Head.

A - Opaque black with a 1-finger thick tan head and great lacing. Looked like a hand-pulled Guiness when it was served all foamy from the bottom up. Gorgeous.

S - Mild, medium roasted oats and light bread. Nice but not much aroma.

T - Sour dough bread, medium charred oats, unsweetened chocolate and a light touch of molasses. Dry, not sweet. The lingering aftertaste is a nice combination of charred oats and hop bitterenss.

M - Medium body and light carbonation. Very creamy but not thick. It seems this beer is made to be served on nitro.

O - Very good. Not quite as fine-tasting as a Founders Porter but leaning in that charred direction. Not as rich in the taste or mouthfeel as a Founders Breakfast Stout, and no coffee in this one. Nevertheless, it's a very good tasting, lowish ABV stout that I enjoyed.
