On tap at Spitzer's Corner, NYC. Served in pint glass.
A - Black with thick 2 finger tan head, sheeting and fairly sticky lace.
S - Subtle roasted oats and chocolate.
T - Creamy smooth roasted malts with hints of coffee and bitter chocolate and earthy hops. Oat character comes through especially in body.
M - Super smooth fairly effervescent but low carb. Medium-low creamy body... on the light side for an oatmeal stout.
D - Really nice. Enjoyable and solid. Not my favorite example of the style, but pretty good.
Serving type: on-tap

The beer looks silky smooth and dark with a nice head that is retained through the session.
This beer smells extremely hoppy for an oatmeal stout. The smell of malt is mostly masked by the hops.
The taste is hoppy as well, not expected in this style and it actually doesn't work so well.
Its hard to pick up the quality of the malt and expected easy drinking oat goodness as the hops prevent the true quality of this beer from coming through.
I am not able to get past the fact that this beer is way over hopped for the style. As I stated above, I can see there is a a good beer in here, brewed with quality ingredients, but the hops are hiding most of what I am looking for.
