650ml bomber poured into pint glass 7/3/14

A nearing black, deep cola edge, 2 fingers of mocha foam falls to a thick film after a couple sips leaving a partial ring of lace

S milk chocolate, raisins, plum, a hint of peat smoke, some coffee, simple but quite strong and I rather like it

T the faint peat I was smelling isn't really there but charred wood takes its place, more coffee, dried dark fruit, a little ashy, the dark malts a little sweet, tastes pretty good

M medium bodied, on the creamy side of foam, ever so slightly sticky on the lips, fruity dark roast on the finish

O no real complaints with this one she's solid start to finish and my bombers almost gone at this point, easy drinking stout

a nice intense dark roast oatmeal stout, I thought it was bang on for style, I'd grab this again

Pours black with a rich khaki head. Pours like cream and looks rich and thick as it goes into the glass.

Nose is assertive cherry chocolate; hint of sweet black chocolate and sugared coffee/roasted grain. Pleasant although the nose seems to fade in the glass rather quickly which is a disappointment because it's so inviting when poured.

Mouthfeel is thinner than it looks when poured. You expect a "half and half" or a cream like texture in the mouth based on its appearance when poured. Not the case, although the mouthfeel is pleasant. Light to light/medium bodied with good carbonation and a pleasant "lighter" stout mouth character. Mouthfeel is a bit simple and "fresh" instead of bold and rich.

Flavors are pleasant lightly bitter roast grain and somewhat simple. Flavors are simple roasted grain/malt but inviting and there is a nice "oatmeal stout sweet" tone as the beer warms. This one is clearly at its best flavorwise at room temperature.

Finish is very pleasant and long lived. Finish is roasty malty and also a nice bitter coffee character.
