look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Black with lots of tiny bubbles rushing up to form a nice khaki head. About a fingers worth. Nice lacing. Looks a little bit like cola

Aroma: Sweet chocolate. Good amount of molasses. Slight roasted coffee to balance the sweetness. A tad grainy. Overall very nice. I really like it

Taste: The oats do their job here. Very sweet but nowhere near cloying. Very smooth, well-rounded flavor. Big chocolate - more sweet than bitter - with creamy bittering coffee. Never gets more of one than the other. Very consistent. slight earthy hop finish. Bittersweet chocolate coats the pallate for a pleasant aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, big flavor but very fefreshing. Not drying as some oatmeal stouts can be. Not that the abv is high but I was honestly expeccting lower than 5% with how smooth it is. A tad watery which isn't necessarily bad just a little offputting for a stout

Overall: Probably one of the smoothest stouts I've had. Very well balanced. Really nice flavor. Would recommend. Wish they came in 6 packs because I could easily put away 6 of these in an eveneing. Highly recommended either way. Very refreshing

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured gently from a 355ml (12oz) bottle in to a tasting glass at my local brewpub.

Appearance: Dark with two finger of creamy khaki-colored head. Moderate lacing.

Smell: Heaps of molasses and dark fruit, bitter coffee, roasted malts, and a hint of bitter chocolate.

Taste: The molasses dominates the palate followed by raisins, figs, coffee and a hint of creamy sweetness coming from the malts and chocolate.

Mouth: Smooth with a medium body. It goes down well.

Although not my favorite, a great oatmeal stout with a wonderfully complex arrangement of flavors.
