Smooth, pours well with a thick foam top. Felt it left something to be desired for how highly it came regarded.

It feels like an honor to review this beer. After having Founder's Breakfast Stout, I've been on the lookout for this brew and was fortunate that my local craft beer store had it in stock.

Pours a dark brown body with a huge, fluffy tan head. Great lacing! Lots of oats and nuts in the nose, with cleaner in the background. Upon first taste, nothing other is oatmeal is present, but quickly the dark and roasted malts assert themselves. Sweet milk chocolate shows up towards then end to round out the flavor profile. Nice touch. Feels smooth, carbonated and very, very drinkable. Definitely lighter than I expected with almost zero bite. Overall, this oatmeal stout is much simpler than other American stouts (lower ABV, no syrupy qualities, or caramel notes), and therefore, can be critiqued for being a bit two-dimensional, but maybe I'm biased. Nevertheless, this is an oatmeal stout for anyone interested in getting into stouts. Worth every penny.
