look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

From a 22 oz. bottle purchased locally. Aroma is roasty with a coffee note. No noticeable hops. Jet black with a tan head that dissipated to a thin ring of tight bubbles around the top of the glass. Flavor is assertive in the roast with a large bittersweet chocolate note in the finish. Just enough sweetness to round out the roast. Some hop bitterness, but no real hop flavor. Some biscuit notes once it warms up. Thick mouthfeel, very chewy, and a little slick from the oats. A good stout, balanced to the roasty side, but improves as it warms up. Like liquid bittersweet chocolate.

4.04/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours pitch black with a nice bubble show; excellent retention at two inches with a nice coating a lace, to boot

Smell: Roasty tones, with chocolate fudge and hints of caramel, coffee and herbal/piney hops

Taste: The roasted tones and chocolate dominate the front end, with hints of caramel and coffee; by mid-palate, the herbal, slightly piney hops build; nicely balanced with rich flavors, in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body; somewhat creamy, with moderate carbonation

Overall: This is a really nice oatmeal stout; well-balanced and quite enjoyable

Thanks, mabermud, for the opportunity
