crazyvin (2017) - New York, USA - DEC 23, 2014
A brown body with a beige head that had some retention and some lace. Aroma was a great mix of chocolate, oatmeal, mild coffee and there were hints of leather. Flavor seemed to have a nice balance of oatmeal and chocolate flavors. Coffee and roasted malts added to the finish. Slightly dry and a nice mouth feel.

Good! Nice roasted aroma with sweet malt and faint coffee. Taste is similar with faint coffee lots of roasted malts and a smooth finish--plenty of sweetness. The body seems a little lighter than I would have though for a stout that has oatmeal... still good though.
