This is actually the first oatmeal stout I have tried. I've been stuck on IPA's over the summer, and I picked this up at HEB on a whim, as a change of pace.

Pours a dark black, with about a finger of tan head that maintained through most of the time I was drinking this beer. It left a nice pattern of tan rings down the side of the glass.

Initial impression on the nose was sweet, with hints of chocolate.

Taste is chocolate, coffee, with a lightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy compared to the beers I've been drinking lately. I had to go back and check to see that this is 9% ABV, the alcohol is pretty well hidden in this beer

Overall, I like this, and will put it on my list to get again. If there are better oatmeal stouts I'm looking forward to trying them.
