It’s not imperial so seems a little weak for my taste. Has a bit of an earthy taste which I like.

Bottle. Dark cola. Dark roasted malt with coffee notes and very light carb. A bit thin for an oatmeal stout. Straight forward stout. Very solid.

On tap at Slash Run in DC, pours a murky black with some tight, tan head. Solid nose, malt, light molasses, chewy grains, toast, light coffee, a little chocolate syrupy. Flavor follows right along with the chocolate and bread, toast, lightly nutty, a tiny bit of umami, some chewy oats there. Finishes creamy but also dry. Very nice.
