Added from notes I have finally gotten around to adding that I took over thanksgiving weekend last year.

A: single finger head on a jet black body, no real light getting through. Good head retention.

S: roasted malts, sweet chocolate malts and mocha/coffee notes.

T: follows the nose with more roasted malts, a slight hop bitterness and coffee/cocoa notes to the finish.

M: full bodied and moderate carbonation. semi-dry finish.

Overall: Lots of flavor for the low ABV. One of the better oatmeal stouts which at times can be "under-powered" for flavor.

Served on tap at The Pony Bar in New York, NY

A: Pours a dark black with a finger high tan head. The head reduces to a thing layer of bubbles across the entire top of the beer. Significant lacing is observed.

S: Very mild smell with hints of roasted malts, caramel, and a subtle chocolate + coffee.

T: Moderate amounts of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and oats (like in an oat bran bread). Nice complexity and some subtle hints of sweetness that I generally associate more with a milk stout. No taste of alcohol but that is not surprising considering the low ABV.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin and dry in the finish.

O: Pretty easy to drink and combined with low ABV make it quite sessionable. Very enjoyable with a light flavor and one to have again if I come across it.
