12oz. bottle. Full-on roasty coffee aroma, dark and rich with hints of cocoa, raisin and molasses. Murky dark brown/black in color with a very thin, fading head. Flavor profile is full of dark malt, chocolate and dark, roasty coffee, with a very mild background sweetness to nicely balance out the dry, bitter malts and earthy hop character, some lingering fudgy chocolate, smoke and roast at the finish. Very low in effervescence with a mostly dry yet lightly coating mouthfeel and a full body. Quite flavorful and tasty.

Deep rich black color with short tan head. Nose is a pleasant mix of fresh coffee beans and chocolate malt. The oatmeal gives a nice full body and complements the flavors really well. A nice creamy, silky texture, very closely resembling a milk consistency.

Bottle. Pours a dark black with no head. Aroma is pure fresh roasted espresso coffee, and fresh ground coffee grinds. Taste is pure coffee and espresso, flavorful with subtle sweetness and chocolate. Finishes on the caffeinated notes. Utterly enjoyable, like Chock Full of Nuts......a heavenly cup. Quaff Score 9 / 10

Bottle from locals trade with MadBeerBaron. Pours brown/black with minimal tan head. Aroma is light roasted coffee, vanilla, charcoal. Taste is nice coffee kick upfront with a smooth, round nutty sweetness. Coffee is not pervasive here but is a nice player in the overall taste. Oatmeal smooths it out and gives a sweetness. Really nice beer.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2014 A great coffee aroma and flavor. The oatmeal addition works wonders for the mouthfeel. This is one of my favorite beers out there.
