I might have to try this beer again. I wasn't a big fan it kind of left me wanting more flavor. And I've heard nothing but great things about this beer. maybe I got a bad bottle lol

Oatmeal flavor is very subtle with a hint hint of soy sauce. Nonetheless, drinkable and not terrible.

Poured a deep amber color with a small creamy head that disappeared quickly to a fine lacing. Aroma was of toasted malts, mouthfeel was bland & light in carbonation. Taste was bland as well.....nothing but malts with an unpleasant aftertaste. I love oatmeal stouts but i couldnt even finish this one. Had to force down the half of a pint i actually was able to drink. Wouldn't seek it out again nor drink it if it was offered to me for free. Highly disappointed.

Outstanding oatmeal stout, only knock I have is the annoying foil at the top of the cap, but the beer is amazing.

Pours dark as it should into a pint glass. Head fades and leaves lacing. Not bitter at all and at 5%abv a very drinkable stout.
