Bottle into a pint glass.
A: Lots of large-bubbled brown head--three or four fingers-worth. Settling slowly, leaving only a bit of lacing. The body is an opaque brown.
S: Sweet, vanilla, coffee notes. Like a nice, fresh-ground, dark-roasted cup of coffee. A bit creamy--would work well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
T: Solid coffee flavor with just enough sweet, malty balance. The oatmeal really comes through, too. Not terribly complex, but well-executed coffee flavor in an oatmeal stout, exactly as advertised. The lingering taste perfectly mimics a regular cup of fairly strong joe.
M: Very good, full-feeling oatmeal stout. It might even be a little highly-carbonated for the style, but I think it works. Very much in style.
D: Pretty high. Not too boozy, great feel, and an overall well-executed coffee stout. The oatmeal gives it much better balance than, say, Black Hole from this same brewer.
