Bottle to tulip

Big Chocolate from start to finish. Layers of chocolate keep resurfacing throughout the taste. Sweet toasted/ roasted caramel. Moderately acrid and smokey. Chocolate milk, milk chocolate, tootsie roll, and cinnamon all come to mind with this brew. Soft, earthy, mild spicy hops counter balance the malt profile. Nice clean (noble?) hoppy bitterness as well. Dark chocolate/cocoa noted in the finish.

Here's where the beer loses me. It's a thinner bodied and creamy beer. I like the creaminess. The thinness of the beer coupled with the moderate to moderate high carbonation is too much for me, for the style. If the beer had more body and less carbonation I would enjoy this beer much more. All things said, this is a good beer. The beer gets high praise, I think there are others that should get equal marks or higher. Glad I tried it.

22 oz bottle.I`ve got to say that I was underwhelmed by this Oatmeal Stout.I have had better Oatmeal stouts that weren't rated near as high as this. Youngs Oatmeal was a lot better. That`s why i have to go with a low rating just wasn`t that good.Too much alcohol up front and not enough flavor.Motley out.
