This stout pours with a black body topped by little head with some lacing. The aroma and flavor are sweet, very roasty, malty and heavy with coffee and a little chocolate. Full bodied, smooth and a little dry.

Initial yeasty aroma escapes the bottle before turning chocolaty. pasty oatmeal aroma noticeable as is high alchol content. Fairly high alcohol bite, blends well against silky oatmeal palate. Nice roasted chocolate at the end grips well into the aftertaste.
