Poured from a bomber into a pint glass.

Look: Pours dark dark brown with a thick, hearty tan head with sticky lacing. Completely opaque; head settles into a centimeter-thick tan layer.

Smell: Clear coffee in the nose, followed by toasted malt and oak. Chocolate wafts off the glass from a yard off.

Taste: Dry, dark chocolate, a short espresso stout, rounded out by toasted malt undertones. Aftertaste of sweeter chocolate and slightly stale coffee.

Feel: Characteristic oatmeal stout thick mouthfeel. Sits heavy on the palate, and ends with a soft fade, rather than a bang.

Can of unknown age poured into a tulip. Has the look and feel of a much bigger beer. Wanted more out of the nose, but found the taste enjoyable. It's not trying to be FBS, but I enjoyed it and will buy more in the future.

Growler from Albertsons. Pours out black / brown with small silky head. Coffee is first element in the aroma, some burnt toast as well. Coffee than takes over the flavor. Medium weight body, slick and creamy.

Had from a 12oz can purchased in Portland, OR

Pours a dark brown/almost black body with a chunky tan head. Little retention, but leaves a nice lacing.

The aromas explode from the glass immediately. Even pouring at arm's length, the beer makes a very vocal presentation right out the gate. An exceptional amount of chocolate from Tootsie rolls to dark chocolate to Baker's chocolate. Accompanying that is plenty of coffee aromas, roasted grain, calcium, sugar, birch, light molasses, and vanilla cream. Definitely shared some elements with a Manhattan Special espresso soda, but was significantly more complex.

It's medium-bodied, but perhaps feels a bit thinner than your nose expects. A nice bitter and toasty finish begins like chalky chocolate powder and ends much thicker like a dark fudge. I was thinking the beer was not hefty enough. However, the lengthy and commendable finish shows this brew already has the necessary chops.
