4.08/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Basically a black hole in a bottle. Completely pitch black, somewhat thick and I think light is actually sucked into it. The head is originally a dark brown, but evolves into a light brown, creamy mess. Nice lacing left behind.

Lots of roasty things. Caramel malts. A bit of coffee. You can almost smell the sweet AND the bitter.

Both the roasted barley and caramel malt really shine giving contrasting bitterness and sweetness at different times. Not much in the way of chocolate or coffee or anything else sometimes associated with stouts, but a good taster regardless.

Very creamy and smooth. Highish ABV that doesn't make much of a nose, so it'll sneak up on you. Complex in that the malt gives you some sweetness early before the roasted barley and hops hit you with some bittering balance in the finish. All the while the oats keep everything smooth.

A slightly different oatmeal stout that I'm used to in that it favors the bitter more than the sweet. This gives it layers and complexity and makes it pretty yummy. Overall, an easy drinker, despite the hoppy bitter finish and moderate alcohol, which you can taste.
