Very faint head, dark, held to the light and it's faintly auburn. Smell faint coffee and a little metallic. Easy drinking, watered down coffee, watery chocolate powder. Really thin.

Rather bland in all regards. I did get a little roast in the nose and a some sweet malt in flavor; not much else. Body's a touch thin. Forgettable.

Good drinkable oatmeal stout. Head disappears quickly. A bit thin and not much special going on. Pretty basic, but done well.

From a bottle with no date code (black mark to you, Lake Superior). Very dark / black with a tan, small head. Smokey & sweet malt aroma with a hint of fruit. Very light carbonation, as befits the brewer's description of this as an English style stout. Smokey roastiness and fruit dominates the initial taste, followed quickly by a sweet maltiness. Smooth and mild, with a slightly subtle bitter aftertaste. This beer is all about the malts. But, then, with no date code, how would I know? The brewer lists no ABV, but it has a bit of a boozy taste, so I would guess it at 6-7% (annoying to not have this information on the label.). Mouth feel is moderate, with a nice creaminess to it. Overall, I enjoyed this beer a lot. Lake Superior: please provide more information on the label (date, ABV, IBU, etc.). The six pack carton advises, "For maximum freshness, keep refrigerated." First, no, don't drink this at typical American refrigerator temperature. This beer is definitely better at English pub temperatures, maybe 50-55 degrees F at the coolest. Second, the concern by the brewer for freshness is a bit ironic given they do not date code. Regardless of my pseudo-rant, I like this beer and will be buying more from time to time.
