3.59/5 rDev -4.5%
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Pitch black with a thin lingering tan head
S: This smells nice. Definitely has a milk chocolate/cream thing going on up front then some coffee and malt
T: Initially this matches the nose but just not as intense. As soon as I swallow it however all of the bitter notes of the cocoa and coffee are accentuated and linger for some time on the finish
M: Medium+ body, bitter
O: This would be a nice beer if it wasn't for the bitter finish. It had everything going for it up until then & I would likely be all 4's but the finish is all you remember and rather disappointing

Appearance: Pitch black. Two fingers of a dark brown head that doesn't last. Basically no lacing.
Smell: Mm. Roasty and giving off the typical chocolate and coffee aromas, but also a caramel note that really makes me want to try it.
Taste/feel: Definitely get the creaminess from the oatmeal, that's the first thing I notice on every sip I take. The carbonation is very mild as well. The flavor is some deep roasted malt with a dark chocolate and black coffee finish. Not as robust as I was expecting, but very good. Aftertaste is a bit bitter with a burnt/ash flavor a bit there as well. Quite drinkable for the ABV, but still a bit light in the flavor. The mouthfeel is nice, but could use just a liiittle bit more carbonation, as this almost comes off as flat.
I've had One, I have Two, and will need to get myself Tres and Fore to try out when I head back to the store. This is a very respectable oatmeal stout. It's not a fantastic one, but a damn tasty beer that I'd seek out again.

Pours a dark brown color with a foamy tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma is oats and malts. Flavor has a nice, complex combination of flavors that includes sweet oats, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and a finish that is mildly bitter. Has a full body feel. Delicious.

Pours ink black with a quick to form and quick to fade mocha colored head atop,aromas of char and vanilla stick out but honestly are pretty light in my opinion.Low carbonation with a slick feel in the mouth.Flavors of char and vanilla stand out most with roast underneath,a bit of molasses-like sweetness is there as well.I expected a little more with this beer but there are many others to seek out ahead of this...in my opinion.
