4.85/5  rDev +14.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: Almost black with dark ruby highlight. Thick creamy tan head with very small bubbles. head sticks around, there is great lacing

S: I get a big whiff of fresh dark breads, A nice malty sweetness here as well. Roasted malt is very restrained in the nose but there is a slight toasty note. No fruitiness or hop aroma to speak of

T: begins with that same fresh bread that is in the smell. moves to a nice malty sweetness (coffee with cream) , followed by the roast character. The beer finishes with a roast character that gives the perception of dryness but there is some residual sweetness that creeps back in. There is not oatmeal flavor present, but as the style suggest its presence rounds out the flavors of the beer which, in my opinion, has definitely happened here.

M: medium-full body, silky smooth but with a slick feel from the oatmeal

D: exceptional on this beer. The flavor is so well put together, it is complex but not overwhelming, the oats do an amazing job or rounding everything out. This beer rolls over your tongue incredibly gracefully and the finish leaves you dying for another sip. Great example of the style
