Poured from the can into a nonik pint glass.

Very nice and dark tan mocha colored head. Rich and lathery with some big swiss cheese retention in a nearly four finger height of made head. Dark walnut brown and nearly black, with a touch of red perhaps as well. Good looking stout.

Simple aroma that bends to a little bit of fruit out of nowhere. Baseline of good milk like chocolate and roast, with a strawberry faint like estery note. Smells slightly ferrous though and metallic but not large luckily, and hints a little weak possibly.

Palate seems alright with one unfortunate knock. Mid palate hits with a steely sensing char and carbon, going to a nice flavor of bitter chocolate and almost toasty dark grains. The mouthfeel though however takes things down just a bit as the body is exceptionally light and doesn't keep much of the flavors from lasting.

Light bodied, with more of a porter like flavor than oatmeal, minus the fruit character. Still easily drinkable.
