This beer is simply amazing. Try it to find out. People who hate dark beers love this one... you will too!
It has a slightly fruity smell, that is low on malt and hop profiles, but has a nice oatmeal scent. There is a hint of coffee and bitter chocolate as well.
The taste follows more into the coffee and chocolate, bitter at first, sweet like butterscotch, and than bitter from the oatmeal at the end. The finish is dry and chalky, but in the best sense of the word.
It is hardy and satisfying, with no watery feeling to it at all.
The mouthfeel is pearly and rich from lots of carbonation and oil from the oatmeal.
Best beer ever. Highly recommend.

A: a medium brown in color, almost approaching dark red in appearance. It has a very ample carbonation and a nice, fluffy head indicative of the style. Its a very welcoming looking beer
S: Simply amazing. this beer pulls your nose into it, and wont let it go. Soft, almost bublgummy aromas leap out of this beer (from the oatmeal), with slight caramel and fruity hoppy aromas working out ot make a almost perfect oatmeal stout smell
t: it hits you with a very breif smoked malt flavor, but quickly moves on to chocolate and caramel malts, and finishes with a firm but restrained hoppy bite that is very refreshing. their is somthign for everyone in this beer flavor, appealing to both the malt and hop lovers in a beautiful compromise that any beer drinker can enjoy.
Mouthfeel: the combination of this beer excellent head, carbonation, and full body lead to a excellent creamy mouth feel that is almost as enjoyable as the beers
overall: I summed the final ranking of this one in my taste comment. A beer with a rich reputation, and a well deserved on. I could drink pint after pint of this excellent, affordable brew and be happy all night.
a beer that picks no sides, that anyone can enjoy.

A- Very dark brown, almost black looking, with no light coming through. Fluffy tan head that lingers around and leaves a lot of lacing.
S- Roasted malt, flaked oats, grainy bread, slight note of sweet bread.
T- Huge roasted malt flavors, grainy bread, rolled oats, hint of cocoa powder, mineral finish. A lot going on for a low abv beer.
M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, slight carbonation tingle
O- Very good oatmeal stout. Smooth and grainy, extremely drinkable.

Giving this icon a day in the Chaney court.
Served in a Port City snifter.
A: Poured as black as night, with a slight off-white mocha head that looked pretty cool to my mind. Sticky!
S: Pretty fruity in the stout realm. Dark fruit that is, along with a nice malt back backbone.
T: How to describe this... hmmm...: Dark malt, almost in the Baltic Porter category, but not quite. A bit of licorice combined with dark chocolate.
M: Nice carbonation, sweetness, ridiculous lacing, etc. In a few words... very nicely done.
O: For about $3.99/bottle, this was a steal. Excellent UK import.
