Fresh from the brewery ... the bottle poured a pitch black beer with a thick, creamy off-white head that settled into a wonderful laced head with a thick stick to the glass. No doubt the usage of rolled oats plays a big part in such head retention and perceived body.

Molasses, roasted grains and a bit of a lacto/dairy aroma in the background. Hint of hop spice.

Wonderfully complex malt profile upfront with more molasses, bitter chocolate, rough roasted twang, cold coffee. Smooth, even body. Thickish mouthfeel, but definitely not too heavy. Hops are just as complex (Hallertauer, Magnum and Cascade) with an nice citric bitter edge that amplifies the roasted character, plus an herbal spice character, touch of pine and an underlying raw leafy flavour and feel on the palate. The beer finishes dry with residual roasted flavours, char and grainy notes.

In my opinion, a spot on Oatmeal Stout, very solid, well-balanced, easy to drink, packed with character and a great addition to the Wolaver's line-up of organic brews.
