Growler pour thanks to Kbills. Pours out dark brown topped with a sand head. Aroma was of coffee, dark roast malts, and chocolate. Taste was more of the roast malts along with the chocolate and good coffee presents. Not over sweet has a touch of bitterness at the end to hold it together.

draft. rich toasted oatmeal, chewy but rough with moderate roast astringency (black patent is oily and licorice like). oat character seems heavy but I can’t figure if it’s an actual ingredient. dusty roasted barley nose, medium+ oat creaminess, well attenuated and properly bitter. delicious.
