look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

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.
