Pours black with a thin tan head. Roasty, smokey notes in the aroma. Roasty malt and dark fruit flavors, a hint of dark chocolate. The carbonation is a little strong, long bitter finish.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours black, with a very small tan head that quickly fades. Nose is cocoa and coffee, and the taste follows the nose. Very smooth, well balanced stout, with a creamy mouth feel and a nice short finish. Delicious.

Unbelievable oatmeal stout. Insanely big bodied and creamy, yet easy to drink and almost refreshing and crisp. Lots of toasted chocolate and coffee notes, and a bittersweet, slightly bitter and long chocolate finish. I love this beer.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks Dan! Pours a dark chocolately brown with a quickly fading tan head. Aroma of coffee, oats, and leather (that I suspect is due to the bourbon). Slightly sour with weak flavors of chocolate and oats. Medium to watery body, with little and leaves little to write home about. Not a bad aroma, but relatively weak as it moves across the tongue.

Bottle. Wonderful aroma of cake, oatmeal, and espresso. However, the palate is quite weak. Slightly aqueous. Based on the palate, I would have expected this to be a full bodies beer, but it's a lot weaker than expectations.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Beige head tops a brownish-black body. Aroma is light coffee, chocolate, a good amount of oats, and some molasses as it warms. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. Flavor is roasted malt, wood, more coffee and chocolate, and drying bitterness. Some bourbon notes in the finish. Medium body and carbonation is bit fizzy for my tastes. Nice stuff.

Nice roasty flavors, oat sweetness, some malt bitterness. A pretty standard oatmeal stout but with some real oomph to it. Nice mouthfeel and texture, too.

Bottle. Black pour with a fleeting tan head. Smells faintly of espresso. Taste is creamy chocolate, nutty malt, and a bit of coffee. Also tastes a bit flat; finish is dry and abrupt.
