A-Black body crowned with a two finger khaki-manila head. Fluffed and cloud-like the head is. Wow. Spotty lace.
S-Milk. Syrup. Cinnamon. Raisin. Sour on warming akin to prunes. Not too much here, just a standard stand-out stout.
T-Sweet, sugary. Bitter dark roast coffee. Bitter cocoa. Cereal. Obvious oats. Lactose notes. Slight dark fruit sour ending. Pinnacle of a stout in taste.
M-Great medium body sips thick and smooth. Low-high to Medium-low carbonation. Feel is grainy, dusty and powdery thanks to the flaked oats. Body could use more fizz, but this stout sips well regardless with an inky cool feel. Bitters, sours and sweets keep the tongue interested as well.
O-A classic for a reason. Not just a great oatmeal stout but a great stout period. A great beer. Plays it safe in a few categories but that's just this stouts' style. Good as is.
