Bottle from bruisin ales. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Dark chocolate on the nose. Hints of cocoa on the tongue with a slightly bitter finish. Not as silky or as creamy as I was expecting. Solid but not spectacular example of style.

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)
