Pours an effervescent ebony with 2 fingers of mocha colored head. Nice viscious body, stays effervescent throughout, lovely lacing & head retention at first, falls off quite bit as time goes by

S: Dark fruit, carob, & a little chocolate once warmer

T: Dark fruit, a touch of roastyness, carob & molasses, plus some boozey warmth up front. Roastyness & charred grain, along with dryness & raisin, plus plum as this warms, plus dark chocolate. Finishes with dry woody hops, charred & roasty grain, a whisper of booze & Baker's Chocolate

MF: Luscious & smooth. Carbonation picks up & body drops off a bit as this warms. Very warming

The oatmeal is fairly present in this one. A nice try at the stout, doesn't hit all the notes, but pretty close. I'm sure this will age wonderfully

I had this before it released at a Roughtail brewery tour, Tony Tielli gave a very informative walk through of their brewery and I learned alot. This brew is great. That being said, my head is rather congested so I am unable to right a decent review. I will come back to this, it deserves my A game.

Not very balanced. Drinks a little too bitter, but has some nice qualities.
