Fantastic stout. Lots of coffee taste, also can taste the chocolate. Nice crisp finish.

I love everything about this beer except the metallic aftertaste. I thought maybe it was just me but I've seen others mention it as well. If it weren't for that I'd give it a five.

Served at 60 degrees. Nice creamy froth without a uniform lacing. Stronger coffee aroma then with subtle oat. Taste is rich but smooth coffee with slightly metallic after taste. Mouth feel is smooth followed by a short tingle. After taste is sparse but warm for the alcohol content. It quickly fluxes from strong coffee to slow dissipating warm. A fun experience but not what I would consider a true oat meal stout. More of a coffee porter with darker coloring.
