tasted blind, man this kinda sucked. Disjointed and very sharp, you make a bad face when you take a big gulp of it.

Coworker brought in a bottle, split amongst a bunch of us. Poured a very dark brown color, tan head. Aroma was light smoke/roast, with some caramel and malt. Flavor is bitter, roasted malts, some bitter chocolate. Oatmeal in here. Pretty tasty.

Bottle to American pint glass
Oats, chocolate and coffee aromas. Pours black with a thin mottled tan head and great lacing. Taste is chocolate and coffee up front, but then that dies off to a grapefruit and then a long lasting bitter end; no alcohol taste. Full bodied, smooth and creamy and no burn. Wow...this is good.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Super dark brown. Head pillowy.... Taste: Taste is sweet upfront, with lots of caramel coming through. In the middle it turns very bready and slight hints of roasted malt bitterness set in. The finish has a slight smoky taste with subtle lingering bitterness. This is a very tasty oatmeal stout, although I wasn’t able to pick oats in the aroma or in the taste.
