look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a thick, pitch black with a one finger dark tan head. Head retention is not that great and lacing is just average.

Dark roast becomes immediately apparent in the aroma. Lots of char and dark cocoa along with some lightly roasted coffee. There are some nice earthy notes in there as well.

The taste is even better than the aroma. Deep, dark chocolate along with heavily roasted malt but is is not astringent. Very milky and on the sweet side without being cloying. The silky mouthfeel lets you know you are drinking an oatmeal stout. Just a light bitterness with a touch of stickyness on the finish.

Overall, an extremely delicious oatmeal stout. There is a great depth to the flavor and the roast/chocolate is incredible. Definitely a beer to seek out.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle code 1143 16:16 AT 42 degrees into a goblet
Aroma roasted malt, chocolatey
Head small (2 cm), creamy, light brown, mostly lasting
Body dark brown, clear
Flavor begins lightly sweet with chocolate overtones, no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Flavor ends with a lingering bitterness
Palate reveals medium to full body, a little more watery than creamy, soft carbonation

The aroma and appearance of this stout cry “Drink me!” However, the watery characteristic and the finishing bitterness detract from its enjoyment.
