look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Large bottle poured into a standard pint glass.
A - Beautiful and dark. A deep black with a lovely dark brown tint. The head was huge and seemed to almost fluff near the top of this brew. Very gorgeous mocha brown head.
S - Roasted barley with an earthy aroma. Sweet Caramel smells filled my nose along with a Dark coffee hint.
T - Bittersweet in taste. Very good. Coffee and chocolate throughout. A roasted barley taste through the middle and followed to the back. Very smooth tasting and satisfying. I could taste the earthy oats toward the latter middle. It was the best note I hit. A hint of bittersweet dark chocolate in the finish. The finish stayed in the mouth for quite some time.
M - Medium bodied brew. Smooth and somewhat thick. A just right carbonation for the style of brew.
O - Rogue has an excellent Oatmeal Stout here. I havent had many, but as a stout lover this will be something I'll enjoy over and over again. Everything seemed to fit in just right and all the notes seems to be spot on in a manner that's world class. I could honestly drink this brew anytime of day. It's very satisfying.

Thanks to BuckeyeNation for this quote: "I will make it a felony to drink small beer"
-King Henry VI, part II (act iv, scene ii)
A: Black, heavy without highlights, abundant dark tan, rocky head, not so much lacing.
S: Hoppy stout, ala Boris. Serious char, wood, chocolate, latte.
T: Taste is intense. Espresso like with hops. Grass, hay, wood, charcoal, coffee. wine-like. This is a great stout with great intensity. meditation beer.
MF: Creamy, dense, woody, flinty, good feel. Not as oily as TedFidy, similar to Boris, Narwhal.
One of my favorites. (But I love hoppy stouts). Best from Rogue.
