12 oz bottle bored in to a tulip.

A-Nearly black with almost one finger of tan head after an aggressive pour.

S- Maple syrup and dark chocolate.

T- Very enjoyable. Flavor develops as it glides across the palate. This one doesn't smack you in the face with complexity, but is solid with milk and dark chocolate coming out the most.

M- Silky smooth and tingly.

O- This beer is solid, but not terrific. I wouldn't mind having another.

Ok its starting to be fall and let me tell you this this is a great fall and winter beer. I am starting to love, and i do mean oatmeal stouts and this is a damn fine one if you want my homest opinion. IT was almost pure black with a white head that could give you a mustache. COnsidering it is all organic ingredients i was very impressed with how good it was. If you like oatmeal stouts than i would say make sure this one is on your list.

This stout poured out lighter than a typical stout – more like a darker brown ale or a light porter. The head was substantial depending on the vigorousness of the pour. The oatmeal taste was evident along with a dry bitter finish. A good oatmeal stout and one that I would buy again.
