look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
A- Dark molasses brown. Not much of a head, what is there is a lighter tan in color. Some light visable carbonation.
S- From bottle, chocolate, espresso, nice deep roasted smell. Glass getting all that with stronger coffee than the bottle, more oats and some slightly bready, hints of vanilla and slight dark fruit sweetness. Smell is deep, dark and lingering alcohol.
T- Coffee, with a certain sweetness. Coffee is throughout and lingers into the finish. Chocolate and malts are pretty balanced in the middle and finish. Some alcohol in the middle and stronger on the finish. About half way down the bottle and the alcohol burn dies down considerably and the flavor really balances out.
M- Creamy and smooth, full body and fairly thick feeling. Carbonation was less pronounced in the feel.
O- I was actually expecting much more complexity in the flavor with all the higher reviews. I found the smell very good and keeps you interested, the flavor is deep, thick and very well balanced. More alcohol burn than I was expecting out of a 8.3 oatmeal stout, but still very drinkable. I was pleased with the full creamy feel. Plan on stocking up on this one and recommend it.
