Poured from a 12oz bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

Pours a clear dark black with 1-2 fingers of cloudy head falling slowly to a creamy collar leaving lots of lacing. There is a nice nose, not huge but present reminiscent of dark chocolate, toasted and dark roasted grains. The taste follows suit but lso brings a pleasing bread character and lots of creamy oats. There is a big body considering the meager 5.2% ABV with nicve carbonation resultant in a smooth creamy mouthfeel. There is great depth to the poet!
