Pour is black with a voluminous tan head. Lovely. There’s some cocoa notes as well as char on the nose, but it smells thin.

Fortunately, the taste and mouthfeel are much fuller - there’s a significant cocoa component on the taste, and that translates to the feel, which has a silky quality which is most welcome. I’d try this again, with zero qualms.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Dark, dark brown pour... nearly black with minimal head/lacing.

S: Tart and roasty... charred grains and light coffee.

T.F: Roasted malts and burned sugars... mildly sweet. Notes of cocoa and espresso. Mild tartness, also related to the roast. Light bodied... fine carbonation. Somewhat creamy from the oats.

O: A reasonably good and nondescript oatmeal stout. Decent flavor and drinkability... not one to seek out.

L - Deep dark brown/near black with mahogany highlights around the edges with a medium tan head that sticks around and leaves some lacing behind.
S - Sweet malt, oats, and barely with notes of chocolate - somewhat of a lactose note on the nose but that along with the whole smell is somewhat faint.
T - Notes of sweet malt and slightly roasted oats and barely up front followed behind by bitter sweet chocolate and coffee.
F - Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Somewhat creamy/frothy and smooth.
O - A pretty good stout - nothing too crazy but a solid flavor profile nonetheless that provides a very drinkable/sessionable oatmeal stout.

2 year old 12oz bottle into a tulip appears dark brown with ruby clarity and a creamy tan head.

Aroma is a bit mineral laden with carbonics, raison and chocolate liquor.

Taste is raison with some minerals, carbonics and slight oats and fruit. Semi-sweet chocolate before some roasty bitterness.

Medium in body with modest carbonation. Decent

Nice dark brown color with full 2 1/2 finger light brown head when poured. Good head retention. This will be a great every day stout. Creamy feel in the mouth with a pleasant, consistent finish. Smell is much less strong than taste. Taste is chocolate and coffee with a hint of alcohol. I will definitely buy this again.
