12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip style pint glass.
Pours nearly black and opaque with one finger of thick light brown foam comprised of micro-bubbles that leave sheets of lacing on the side of the glass.
The nose is mainly mild aromas of roasted and caramel malt, chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Taste is mostly malty with a hint that of hop character and moderate bitterness that last right through to the finish where I am getting coffee. Otherwise semi-sweet and roasty with caramel and I think a little bit of oat flavor. Mouth feel is a little lighter than I'd like, medium bodied with carbonation about the same and a little bit of an oat feel.
Overall a decent American Stout if maybe a little thin.
