A: poured nice and dark like a stout should be, great thick, dark tan head.

S: smells amazing! Lots of coffee, little bit of bitter dark chocolate.

T: loads of great coffee flavor followed by some slight bitterness from the hops with the slight chocolate after swallowing.

M: wonderfully carbonated, smooth and creamy from the flaked oatmeal.

O: the perfect breakfast stout. Tons of coffee flavor, followed by just the right amount of chocolate.

12 ounce bottle poured into an Efes tulip. Quick, beige head with clear, slippery lacing. Aroma includes coffee, roasted malt and maybe a touch of yoo-hoo. Interesting. Taste is deliciously smooth with no traces of alcohol. Some malt sweetness noted (yoo-hoo), light flavor of coffee. Tastes more like a milk stout. Either way, amazing for the high abv. Excellent.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a very nice rich black brown color with a huge mocha colored head that leaves nice lacing and has great retention. The aroma is very nutty, some vanilla and tons of milk chocolate. Big roasted malts, just a hint of dark chocolate, but all milk chocolate on the palate. Big flavors of raisins and winter stone fruits masked by rich marshmallow like sweetness that blends all of the flavors together. Mouthfeel is spot on for the style. Really couldn't believe this was 8.5 percent abv after it's big silky texture and no alcohol burn. Really a nice made stout and perfect example of the style.

Convict Hill Oatmeal Stout has a fairly thin, tan head and a very dark brown appearance, with red highlights under light. A thin lacing sheen is left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, dark-roasted barley malt, cream, coffee, and chocolate. The flavor is of all those, plus some astringency, coal, and a mellow hop bitterness across the sip. Mouthfeel is pretty heavy and viscous, and Convict Hill Oatmeal Stout finishes dry, sweet, and wonderful. This is a delicious beer, and the drinker just does not pick up the 8% abv. Overall, I rate it most excellent.
