Poured into a pint glass. Reviewed alongside Wolaver's Oatmeal Stout.

A: Dark brown with three-finger, tan, creamy head that lasted a few minutes. Pretty good lacing.

S: Sweet alt and a bit of hops.

T: Solid sweetness and light bitterness. Dark chocolate and coffee. Nice roasted flavor. Some fruity esters too.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very smooth and creamy.

O: This Oatmeal stout had a nicer head and lacing and was definitely the creamier of the two, but Wolaver's had a richer aroma and flavor. I call it a tie. Both are excellent, but then again, I love Oatmeal stouts.

from bottle into tulip

A- pours black with a two finger cocoa head that doesnt last long

S- yeast, licorice, some banana and some coffee

T- yeast, some coffee and banana

M- somewhat thin despite appearance. felt a bit runny imo

O- i was pretty much very dissapointed with this brew. it was my first oatmeal stout and i was not impressed. ive heard a lot on this site about the style and was eager to try one(not a lot of variety in my area).. but you get what you pay for, and this was rather cheap. im hoping maybe it was a 'not so good' bottle or that other oatmeal stouts will taste better. there really wasnt much i liked about it other than the appearance.
