Opaque black with a tan creamy head. Coffee and chocolate aroma. Flavor is also coffe and chocolate but a grainy oatmeal flavor is also lurking in there. Medium body, yep another oatmeal stout.

Black pour with white head. Smells a lot of oatmeal with a hint of spice and coffee. Chocolate in the aftertaste with a moderate sweetness and good finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught during my NC brew tour. This is black stout indeed. Perhaps some slight red hues come through. A firm tan head floats for quite some time. There is a thick oatmeal cookie aroma with solid chocolate and coffee presence. The brew is very hearty, oaty, with a moderate chocolate sweetness. The finish leaves a considerable hop bite on the tongue for the style. Very solid and balanced stout.
