12 ounce bottle poured into hefeweizen glass. Bit of a boozy aroma when colder than the correct serving temp. Bitter hoppy flavors at start when cold, however as the beer warms the aromas flavors open up to the malts and oats in the used for brewing. I suggest serving at the correct temp at the start. The body is creamy which is to be expected from an oatmeal stout.

Bottle at home, pours dark brown with little khaki head. Aroma is nice chocolate and coffee malts, slightly sweet, a bit of roast and char. Taste is dark chocolate, black coffee. This warms with some slight sweetness and a bit of oatmeal. Finishes slightly bitter. Heavy mouthfeel, high carbonation. Nice.

Pours a clean and dark opaque black with one finger of chestnut brown head. The nose is nice, shows burnt sugar and a lightly acidic coffee roast with dark fruit skins and sweet mocha. A light burnt grain acidity at the front of the mouth with a nice roast note to follow. Bitter coffee and dark chocolate show. Medium full bodied with an acrid finish.

Dark beer with almost no head. Sweet roasted grain nose. Taste of dark toast, puffed wheat, brown sugar and caramel. Almost smokey finish. Nice smooth moth feel. Nice oatmeal Stout.

I really liked this beer it was a smooth and very tasty. It had a light head and poured very dark. I would drink this on a regular basis. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
