Look: It pours dark brown with a brown head.

Smell: There are moderate fruit aroma with Roast, chocolate, and some nut.

Taste: There are flavors of roast and citrus with chocolate, oats, and nut.

Feel: It has a moderate feel that is on the heavy side with a moderately high bitter finish. It has a fairly high level of carbonation.

Overall it is a malt forward ale with a pleasant balance of citrus hops.

Dark brown with a generous khaki head. Nose dominated by dark toasty malts. Taste smooth, with dark caramel, a hint of sweetness. Smooth taste and mouthfeel: silky, as the bottle suggests. Excellent beer, would only rate higher if the flavor profile were more complex, but that might disturb the smoothness of the taste profile that develops as you drink this. Drank 28 May 16.

There is a large tan head on this beer, a dark blackish color that has a red tint in the light. It has a rich and full stout flavor. There are hints of oatmeal in the flavor, and light chocolate notes in the aftertaste. It smells like coffee to me. The feel is medium and average relative to other stouts. Overall, it is a good oatmeal stout from a brand that is consistently good. I would recommend to stout fans, who can get a hold of it.
