A: pours very dark brown, almost black; light passes through; khaki head that leaves a nice ring around the glass, no lacing

S: strong toasted oats, toasted bread, dried plums (prune), dark molasses, dried figs

T: oats, toasted bread, dried plum, raisin skin, very light bitterness on the finish

M: nice moderate level of carb, on the thin side (for a modern stout) but this is what a traditional oatmeal stout should be like

O: I typically look for a higher abv, fuller mouthfeel stout when I'm drinking in the colder months, but this is perfectly suited for the change of seasons; it would also be great for a cold night when you plan to have more than a couple beers; in short, it's a great go to oatmeal stout
