The beer pours a very foamy and medium dark tan head that lasts quite a while. The beer itself is an opaque black. The lacing is a very nice look when it is on the glass.

The beer smell is extremely hoppy for an oatmeal stout. The beer smell has some light chocolate notes and some very strong oat notes that do not create a nice smell with the strong hop notes. The hops seem to dominate all the other notes and kind of ruin the smell. Thee hop smell itself isn't bad but the lack of roastness or chocolate sweetness that normally accompanies the beer style isn't there. Rather, the beer smells like an IPA with some chocolate and roast notes.

The taste follows the nose to a certain extent but has stronger roast and chocolate notes. The hop notes are fairly bitter and block out most of the other notes except for the oats.

The mouthfeel is pretty disappointing for an oatmeal stout. The beer is medium bodied but on the lighter side and feels bit watery. The beer is smooth but not creamy.

Overall, a pretty disappointing oatmeal stout and wondering if I just got a bad bottle. The beer overall smells, feels, and tastes like a malty IPA. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone if they're looking for a good oatmeal stout.

Total black beer with a small and fast dissapearing brown head.

Nose: Coffee, dark chocolate, candy, vanilla and roasted malt.
Taste: Coffe from arabic beans, dark chocolate, rich roasted malt, chocolate milk, sweet syrup and some hops.
Body: Medium to full body with light carbonation. A great bitterness. Creamy.

Pitch black with a smallish tan head. The smell is sweet - marshmallows, jelly beans, sugar cookies with a little floral hint. The taste doesn't follow the nose like I had expected. It it's think in the mouth. The floral essence hits first and then follows with a dark roasty flavor. Not as sweet as I had expected, which is probably a good thing considering how sweet the smell was. Really good beer.

Superb stout and the best I've had to date. Of all the beers I try just to try this one keeps me coming back as often as possible. Super deep roasted flavors that hang around long after the last sip. Incredible beer.
