Outside of Dark lord, their darker beers just don't do it for me. This one has a nice body and good amount of roastiness. Overall it was a pretty good beer

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dense tan head that died down, leaving some patches of bubbles on the surface and a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of chocolate malts are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of chocolate malts along some hints of roast and licorice, the latter of which becomes a little stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't nearly as smooth as some of the other oatmeal stouts that I've had, but it really packs in a lot of chocolatey flavors.

Look - Dark brown body. Thick tan head without aggressive pour. Bubbles very fine then expanded. Lacing.

Smell - Roast malt and chocolate. Coffee.

Taste - Follows the smell. Bitter finish.

Feel - Not overly carbonated. Creamy. Light to medium even as a stout. There is not overwhelming alcohol.

Overall - Slightly bitter stout with creamy feel. It is not bad, but not amazing.

22 ounce bottle, bottled on 04/03/2015. No ABV on the label, but 3 Floyd's website right now says this is 8% ABV. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch and a half tan head that stayed around for a little while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, oats, chocolate, and some vanilla. The brew tastes like roasted malt, chocolate, oats, dark bread, burnt/charred malt, vanilla, coffee and some dark fruitiness. There's also a nice bitter/charred/roasty finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and a bit coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. It's pretty easy to drink. I thought this was good, I should have bought another bottle of this when I saw it! $12.99 a bomber.
