Tried at the 4 Pines space party in April 2012.

Pours a very dark, dark brown. Nice creamy head that retains well but leaves curtains of beige lace as it slowly sinks. Looks lovely.

Bitter chocolate on the nose. Roasty but sweet, with hints of vanilla pods and cinnamon. Nice spice edge but it's really all roast. Like an oatmeal stout should be.

Taste is smooth, and far smoother than a lot of oatmeal stouts I've had - in spite of it being a hallmark of the style. Sweet start: grainy with chocolate notes, then develops a strong and fairly rich roasty-burnt bitterness midway that lasts all the way to the back. Hints of peppery spice rise up to join it late-mid. Finishes rich, chocolatey and smooth. Quite beautiful and balanced, with the hallmarks of a stout but no rough or sharp edges at all. Lovely.

Smooth body, but it fills the mouth with flavour. A bit dry; good.

Lovely oatmeal stout and just exemplary of the style. Definitely worth a try if they ever brew this again.
