12oz bottle obtained via trade with CRJMellor. Thanks for the opportunity...

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" dark brown head over the opaque black brew. Head quickly fades to an uneven layer of bubbles, and lacing is minimal. Aroma is dark roasty sweet oats, and that's about it. Taste is sweet burnt oatmeal, with a slight tang in the middle, and closes reasonably dry on the tongue. Mouthfeel is smooth due to the heavy oat use, and drinkability is is down a bit due to a preponderence of the dark malt giving it a slight bitter bent that seems out of place.

Recieved in a trade from plucier. Served at cellar temperature in a pint glass. Poured a deep brown that turned black in the glass. About one good finger of tan frothy head rose from the glass. Head dissipated quickly into a small ring of lace. Smell: Nice roasty toasty aromas of sweet malt, chocolate, and some bitter roasted coffee. Taste: Bitter burnt coffee. sweet chocolate, roasted malt, black licorice with a nice oatmeal flavor. Very smooth at first with a nice bitter coffee finish. Not too bad. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and dry but is a very drinkable beer.
