Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has roast and oats to it, like a light breakfast coffee and nip of oatmeal.

In the taste, bitter roasted grain, coffee cream, light acidic hop/malt thing going on acceptable for style. Creamy, smooth feel. Light, bready sweet cereal beer. The nitro gives it a dangerously drinkable element as it goes down smooth.

Overall, this is a good oatmeal stout. The nitro makes it smooth. It was who we thought it was.

Serving type: nitro-tap

I had this on a nitro pour and really enjoyed watching it settle. It is black in color but a bit of light will seep through when held up to light. An inch thick creamy khaki colored head caps it off. I smell flaked oats and dark malt. The taste is more about subtlety and I get dark malt and flaked oats. There's a reserved bitterness from the dark malt. The texture is creamy and smooth.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Looks awesome. Dark as night with a creamy tan nitro-dense head of two fingers. Laces carefully.

Semi-sweet coffee notes, baker's chocolate, husky roasted malts, oat-y bitterness, faint pine hop, and smooth earthiness. Lightly kissed with a smoky nuance. Excellent.

Roasty chocolate malts is cut by a creamy nitro-flatness and ridiculous dryness. Chewy oats, crushed coffee bean, carob, and soft earthy hops. Faintly herby. The hint of smoke from the nose is now gone.

Creamy, but not rich. Insanely drinkable, in part, because it's not as hefty as I would have imagined or preferred. Nitro carb doesn't push as hard as i want. Still, elegant and a good "soft".

Great beer. A premier oatmeal stout that I will have to look for.
