26oz can poured into a snifter

A- pours deep black in color with a one-finger creamy khaki and that has great retention and needs some lacing behind

S- nose of earthy and herbal coffee with notes of espresso, mocha cream, chocolate, whipping cream and charred malt

T- rich herbal espresso up front, with similarities to a Sumatra coffee, the coffee also brings out a blueberry-like note. Mid-palate gives roasted/charred malt and vanilla cream. The finish gives herbal espresso

M- medium body with moderate carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel, medium-thin finish

O- solid coffee stout with good drinkability

Canned on 11/30/2018, it pours as dark brown as possible with a 2 finger thick foamy khaki colored head that was packed with tiny bubbles, dissipating slowly and leaving excellent foamy lacing in a honeycomb pattern.

Regardless of whether it's an English Oatmeal Stout as listed here on BeerAdvocate or a Breakfast Stout as listed on the can, it was a really enjoyable stout with lots of char, roasted grains, smoked malts, cocoa powder, bakers chocolate, burnt coffee grinds, nutty notes, faint piney hops, hints of dark fruit, dark chocolate and mineral water. The nose was pretty much like the flavor summary above with more metallic hints, and the mouthfeel was smooth and on the thin side with almost no carbonation, a light bitterness and plenty of roasty notes which hid the ABV. Good stuff, thanks to my man Alex down in NC for shipping this up to me.

An excellent basic, low-ABV breakfast stout, with a very earthy, nutty coffee balanced by cacao nibs and a malty sweetness from the oats. Smooth with a hint of cherry or dark stonefruit lurking underneath the surface.
