When the carbonation clears and finally disappears from the edges thus sets up with a deep radiant onyx color. The head was tan with a fizzy nature but it collared thickly and set up nicely.
The nose is filled with roasted oats, sweet yet dry chocolate, slight roasted coffee and creamy marshmallow.
The flavor yields to the creamy sweetness with a marshmallow tendancy. Dry chocolate, sorghum, molasses, raisin and even maple make an appearance.
The feel is a touch thick with a bit more carbonated bite than I desire. Otherwise it's smooth and easy to drink.
Ostensibly, this is a cheap beer as its Trader Joe's, but it packs a good flavor and serves it's purpose as a easy to drink stout.

Black with a light brown head that was substantial, had staying power, and left pretty good lacing.
Aroma and flavor have plenty of roasty, toasty, a smidge of burnt, good maltiness with a touch of caramel malt, and a smidge of coffee and chocolate.
Body is pretty darn thick and real nice for an oatmeal stout. Slightly sweet finish.
Overall a very tasty beer and one of my favs from trader joes so far.

You have to take into account the cost of this beer ($1) in your rating!
For the price, it is an outstanding stout, with a great, almost creamy flavor. It would probably go best with a dessert, chocolate and sweet, than with a meal. This is a good beer to try as you can purchase single bottles from Trader Joe's.
