Pouts pitch black with a half finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of coffee, bakers chocolate, malts, sweet malts, caramel, roasted molasses, some floral hops, and some light pine. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with some charcoal/burnt wood notes in the finish. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, tasty, pretty complex oatmeal stout that is pretty happy for the style.

Was one of my favorite stouts. Great flavor and mouth feel. It’s too bad Elysian decided to become a part of AB Inbev. I rate it a .5 for being a sell out.
