Thanks to haveanother1 for sending this over via trade.

A: Opaque black with 3 fingers width of bubble tan colored head. Bubbles settle and it becomes a dense 1 finger width that has great retention. Leaves a sheet of lacing down the side of the glass.

S: Oatmeal and lactose like heavy cream, a bit herbaceous, subtle coffee and chocolate.

T: Roasty and grassy/herbaceous. Oatmeal, a more pronounced coffee than was present in the aroma, lactose and a subtle semi-sweet bakers chocolate.

M/D: Nice smoothness, mouthfeel on the lighter side, carbonation moderate, drinkability is average.

O: Solid brew, nothing spectacular, but a nice Sunday morning beer to get my homebrew day started.
