A: Pitch black. I wouldn't drink this if the USDA didn't exist.

S: Not much of a smell, which is fine.

T: Oats and alcohol bite, some sweetness. Finishes smooth and creamy.

M: Great, creamy mouthfeel that crawls over your tongue.

O: Good beer, not particularly memorable but a good specimen of its class.

An aggressive pours yields a one finger tan head that sticks around and leaves some lacing.

Smell is sort of subdued, but its clean and there's hints of several components. First is a sweet yeasty smell, some floral notes. Others are fudge, cocoa, coffee, dark fruit like figs and dates.

Taste is great with coffee dominating, and a sweet robust malty quality, perhaps the oats. Chocolate and cocoa is there as well. Very clean taste.

Feel is medium carb and a semi-slick feel. Flavor coats the tongue and then leaves a very dry taste.

Overall I do like this oatmeal stout, as I think its on par with 8 ball stout and some others, pretty good.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Black with a short brown head, beautiful.

S: Oatmeal, roasted malt, coffee and chocolate in the nose.

T: Sweet oatmeal, bitter coffee and dark chocolate. Very good.

M: Smooth and full bodied. Very good body for a stout.

O: A delicious stout. I'd love to have a bourbon barrel aged version of perhaps an imperial Vanilla Oatis.
