Oh my god! this is the best beer I ever tasted. Chocolate and coffee notes give way to ab absolutely heavy mouthfeel. Very little bitterness. This is what I drink every day, I accept no substitute. I always pour it a little fast so the tan head is nice and thick. There is nothing light and watery about this beer!

had this waiting in the fridge, I think since father's day
(not hitting the bottle too much these days)
but this one is WELL worth the wait: I am tryly tempted to give this a over all 5!

a - super dark on the pour - darker than cola. just a humble half finger of head, deep khaki in colour. no lacing to speak of.

s nice, deep caramel sweetness

t Hoo Ahh! just an ever so slight touch of bitter, think choco-coffee with a bit of caramel. SMOOTH

m thick and creamy

d near perfect. LOVE this brew. to be savored, never guzzled.

Pours an opaque dark-chocolate brown with just a hint of a light tan head. Smoky aroma has quality coffee, semi-sweet chocolate and molasses tones plus hints of licorice and toffee. Mouth-filling flavor has a firm smoky overtone and molasses, quality coffee, chocolate, licorice and toffee flavors - delicious! Smooth yet lively texture leaves a smoky and fizzy finish. Recommended!

smell - what can I say, wonderfil, dont get any better. Lots of chcolate, toasted oats, Yumm

Taste - Porters to me need to be thick, strong in coffee and toasted grains and have a nice tan head. This one is on point

Ninkasi has more top shelf beers than any other brewer. This one is one of my favorites

Serving type: 12 oz bottle into a shaker pint

Pours an almost black body, with dark brown edges. The smell is of toasted oats, bitter chocolate, light coffee notes, with a slight tinge of alcohol scent. The taste is of toasted oats, coffee, and a slight nuttiness. This is very good. The feel is thick, viscous, extremely creamy feeling. Very pleasant. Overall, this is a very good standard oatmeal stout which I would not hesitate to purchase again.
