Thanks to kjyost for this one.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle, no freshness info.

Appearance: Down & dirty brown body, massive head the color of light milk chocolate that grips the sides. Nice large air bubbles around the sides.

Smell: Grainy oatmeal with layer of creamy chocolate then rounded out by flakes of oats.

Taste: Nice mix of oats & chocolate at first but not very strong. Room temp helps some but still not full in flavor.

Mouthfeel: Has a silky smoothness but a bit watery overall and not up to the body it should be.

Overall: Drink this warm for best results but the aroma was definitely better than the flavor.

Lightly chilled 12 oz. bottle into 12 oz. shaker.

Look- Pours a rich deep brown with a dense silky cap of off-white foam that sticks around for a minute or two. Decent stick, ropy lacing.

Smell- Sweet, loads of dark roast grains and coffee. Nothing too flashy, but well done.

Taste- Baker's chocolate and espresso laced with sweetened condensed milk. Mellow mocha through the finish with a bit more roasted grain and coffee at the end.

Mouthfeel- Medium-full body, medium for the style. Light carbonation, creamy feel. Dry-ish finish, light astringency but not overbearing. Easy drinking.

Overall- Pretty standard profile but a very well-executed brew. Above average for the style, but not something I'd seek out.

Pours a big, frothy, tan head. Rich, toasted coffee aroma. Black color. Starts with a tart, bright, acidic flavor that has notes of deeply roasted malt. Medium bitterness gives way for even more deep, toasted malt in the finish. As it lingers, roasted coffee beans sit on the palate.

Overall, not bad. I really like the toasted flavors, thought the acidity is a bit too high for my tastes. It's smooth, but not as thick as I'd like.
