Had on tap at Greenbush.

A- Pours a deep black color. One finger dark tan head shows medium retention. Long lace sticks to my glass with each and every sip.

S- Good clean roast up front with this beer with oats and chocolate acting as secondary aromas right after the roast. Hints of vanilla follow this along with a hint of alcohol in the ending. The chocolate in the backend shows up a little more as it warms.

T- Good roasted malt comes out first with a bittersweet chocolate like flavor right after. The roasted malts do come out more after the initial chocoalte flavor in a coffee like hit. The middle shows off more the coffee roast along with a matching bittersweet chocolate. Ending of the beer shows a light bitterness from hops and a little dose of roasted malts.

M- Medium-heavy body. Carbonation was a little light for the style I thought but managed to work itself out with the beer nicely. Lots of roasted coffee and chocolate left on the palate. Hints of warming alcohol, bittering hops, and light roast are left long into the aftertaste. No off flavors at all in this beer. Medium drying on the palate from the alcohol.

O- This beer was a good example of the style without going overboard. Smooth with a perfect amount in the aroma and flavor. The ABV is nice and low enough that you can drink a couple of these to stay warm in the coming winter months.

Pours black with one and a half fingers of brown head. Head has decent retention but doesn't leave much lacing. Smells of roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and grain. Taste starts off very roasty, before bitter chocolate comes through. Oats provide a bit of silkiness. More roast than a typical oatmeal stout, but really tasty.
