12 ounce bottle

The bottle pours an opaque black with a minimal mocha head, which quickly dissipates.

Aroma is a creamy chocolate, light roasted malt and maybe even some subtle oatmeal. Nothing too complex here.

Taste begins with the aforementioned creamy chocolate, quickly giving way to a charred, roasted malt. On the back end, a the charred characteristics really take the lead.

Mouthfeel is medium and ends somewhat creamy, but definitely not as much as I would expect for an oatmeal stout. Carbonation is low, joined by medium bitterness from the roasted malt.

Overall, a pretty simple stout from the Dark Horse crew. I would have liked a fuller body and more creaminess from an oatmeal stout, especially one clocking in at 7.00%. Regardless, this beer is full of flavor and I will have no problem finishing off the four pack!

Solid oatmeal stout - a bargain at 8 for a 4 pack. Good malt profile with a creamy mouth feel just as you would expect. Only knock on it is a slight initial wateriness of flavor - it could do with a bit more roast to kick things off.
