Pours jet black with a hint of a dark brown light shining through the corner. Mocha colored head, decent lacing throughout the session.

Acrid roast on the nose. Hints of ethanol and grassy hops.

Mild roast on the palate. Nice chocolate presence emerges at the end. Lingering bitterness. Could use some more sweetness to balance the bitter. Alcohol emerges as the beer warms.

Medium light bodied, yet smooth thanks to the oats. Beer doesn't particularly cling to the mouth. Very pleasant level of carbonation.

Overall this is a good beer, and one I would drink again. I feel like the roast is a little out of balance and could use a little sweetness to bring balance to the force. Definitely worth a taste and I'd definitely try it again.

Tasty. Easy drinker but flavorful. 2 would be enough or a slow drink all night

Great look, great smell. Taste is very chocolatey and good. But only issue is unpleasant alcoholic taste.
