Pours a dark brown color with honey edges and a thin layer of head. The nose is more smokey than roasty. The body is definitely thin for such a big stout. The roast is lighter than some basic stouts. Also, there is an odd perfumey note in the flavor.

Dark and velvety, head is a little too frothy. Aroma wafts from the pour, semi sweet chocolate and roast grains. Taste is smooth and slick, minor bitterness, but mellow, rich flavor. This is really, really good stuff.

From a bottle, pours an opaque black with a one-finger lingering dark tan head. Rich aroma of dark roasted malt. Taste follows as very malt forward, with noticeable carbonation, a decently full mouth feel, and a hop driven tangy finish. While it's somewhat "creamy", it's carbonation and hoppy-tang make this fairly UN-oatmeal-stout-like ... but still a solidly nice stout.

Poured into a Pint Defiance tulip. The body is black, with a creamy tan finger head. Aromas consist of dark chocolate and espresso. The flavors are the same. The feel is medium/high bodied with medium carbonation, smooth, and a dry finish.

Pours pitch black with an inch of head on it that goes away fairly quick.
Smells of chocolate and oats.
Taste like it smells. It goes down smooth with an after taste that is sweet chocolate that lasts a few seconds and then is gone. Doesn't stay on the lips and is one delicious stout
