Appearance: pours a brown with hints of both red and black. opaque due to the dark color. a two or so finger head forms and has pretty good retention and just a small lacing.

Smell: notes of chocolate, oatmeal, some roastiness. and light fruity esters.

Taste: opens up with chocolate covered oatmeal. nice and soft, finally giving way to a slight roasted malt character. back end has hints of fruity esters and earthy hops.

Mouthfeel: light and creamy. almost watery at times. some lingering bitterness.

Overall: a nice and drinkable light stout. good flavor and moderately complex. somehow it leaves me wanting just a little bit more, mostly in terms of roasted notes and mouthfeel.

Almost no head, jet black, well carbonated, toasty notes on the nose, good malt backbone, a bit of chocolate, thin, nice even toasty finish.
