look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
12oz bottle poured into a oversized wine glass
A- poured gently into the glass it still has a lite head that sticks to the sides. A very nice dark brown with little light coming through, even with a flashlight test.
S- a nice light roast smell, kind of a light sweet smell, some caramels light coffee, light figs? Very nice to the nose.
T- Very good flavor, a lighter roast that is kind of sweet, not like sugar sweet, but a light dark fruit that's been added slightly to enhance, very smooth. Mild flavors of coffee and not much chocolate.
M- Light small tingly bubbles in each drink, not heavy and very smooth with a slight slick silkiness to it
O- My first oatmeal stout, was expecting more of a pow like a normal stout. This was very mild and I could drink it all day. I really liked the mild but slightly sweet balance of this beer and will get more and do recommend to my friends.

4.24/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Look: A Very deep dark brown. Poured into a snifter it appears almost black. Into a pint, it may appear a but more brown, I think. Big fluffy, cream colored head which is retains fairly well.
Smell: Oats, dark roasty malts. A somewhat sugary, creamy smell to it.
Taste: Smooth and sweet, with an oaty, maltiness to it, and a slight bitter finish to it.
Feel: This is excellent. VERY smoothy and creamy texture. The carbonation is just right.
Overall: Excellent beer. Last time I drank this was as dessert after a Steak topped with blue cheese crumbles, so I remember it being sweeter the previous time I had it.
