Head quickly dissipates. Nose of sweet roasted coffee, perhaps some toffee. Taste the oatmeal, coffee and hints of cocoa towards the end. Took some hints from other reviewers and let it warm a bit. Flavors come through much better. Overall, a good standard stout.

Pours the color of dark coffee and the aroma is like roasted chocolate coffee beans with a hint of toasted grain. Head foams up nicely, but dissipates quickly. Somewhat sweet and malty up front and a trace of bitter chocolate in the end. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy, yet with pleasant carbonation dancing on the tip of the tongue. Carmely finish lingers long. Very tasty brew. This is a stout by which I measure other stouts.
