Boring and very simple. Taste is light chewing on oats. Residual sweetness and a bit thin. Oats dominate and its really not an interesting flavor to dominate something.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Classic pour ... ruddy black with a quick-to-rise tan, fizzy head. The initial aroma is somewhat restrained, but once the consumption begins, I get a sturdy quotient of boldly roasted malt and coffee. Interesting consistency -- lighter than you might expect, but also well-matched to this easy-to-drink toasty stout. Well done! (#4414, 12/19/2011)

12 ounce bottle from Brawley’s in Charlotte. Pours a very dark brown color with a large frothy brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of oatmeal, chocolate, nutty notes and a faint finish of tart cherries and band aids. Uh oh. The taste is bitter roasted malts, nutty notes, chocolate and coffee. Thankfully no infection notes here. Medium bodied. Pretty good overall.
