Appearance - Dark brown, nearly black. Apparently opaque. Medium tall, dark brown, creamy head that persists.

Smell - Dark roasted malts. A little bit of coffee and chocolate. Not getting any hops.

Taste - Begins with a mild roasted sweet. Strong dark coffee or unsweetened chocolate-like bitterness. Just a hint of citrusy hops in the finish. Flavor of this is just right for me - a least when I want a rather dark beer.

Mouthfeel - Full. Very smooth.

Drinkability - Tyranena is perhaps Wisconsin's best brewer. This might be their best beer. Not quaffable, but a few of these should make the night go better.

Pours a heavily-dark brown -- not black, just like I keep insisting my hair isn't black. Nice yet short, tan head to it that recedes a little quickly.

Smell is heavenly. After having a few prime examples of oatmeal stouts (not enough though), it really leaves a good impression. Almost smells like a porter, given the smokiness, but a solid addition of oats and a great dark malt backbone.

Taste is wonderful as well. Smoky, plenty of oats outline the entire feel, and dark maltyness.

Mouthfeel is medium-heavy, which I guess is good, but I could go for a bit more thickness.

Overall, a fantastic beer, I'd highly recommend it. First one I've had from Tyranena, which seems to be a relatively new brewery, but I'll eagerly look for from them in the future.

Picked up a single bottle from a mix and match. Wanted to try it before buying more.
I looked on Tyranena's website and could not find any additional info, other then whats printed on the label of the bottle.

Poured from a brown stubby 12oz twist off bottle, into a pub glass. A thick inky consistancy noticeable while pouring. Creating a frothy tan colored 1'' head. Receding to leave a cap of retention and lace ring streaks all the way down.
Black as night, no light penetration.

Aroma is pungent with oaty deliciousness. Also noticeable is a charred chocolate grain aroma, charcoal and malt.

Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with a velevety smooth texture, mixing with very laid back carbonation. This is one of the greatest mouthfeels for the style I think I have ever experienced. Textbook.
Taste is also textbook, nothing extra ordinary or Darklord like about it, its just perfect and what this style should taste like. Its not overly bitter, or overly puckering. But some good bakers chocolate bitters coming through, mixing well with the flavors of oats. A bit of a woody peat smoked flavor here, and only of the slightest bit in that reguard. But still noticeable.
Finishing with some very light hop leaf earthy flavors, oats, bitter chocolate and grain taste.

Great example of the style. I would guess that the abv is in the 4 to 5% range.
