This is one of the better oatmeal stouts I have ever had. The beer looked great but lacked in aroma. The taste more than made it up for it. Smoooth and if a beer can be too drinkable this would be it. I could have drank that beer all night. Recommending this to everyone and I hope I can find it in 6ers.

Bottle from Siciliano's, 12oz into a tulip.

Just about black, with a milk chocolate like brown head. Good retention and great lace. Nose has roast on the front end, with some sweeter caramel and vanilla notes in the middle. Sweeter chocolate as well. Roast oats upfront on the palate, moderate chocolate and drys/thins out on the back end, finishing with roast again. Body is thinner than I appreciate for the style, but alcohol is hidden. A nice oatmeal stout for sure.

My bottle says "Alc. 7.0% by Vol."

Pours a deep black color crowned with a fat, cocoa head that fades to a slim ring. Thick, rich roasted malt, smooth chocolate, oats, and underlying toffee. Loads of heavy, chocolaty malt over some dark fruit, vanilla bean, and coffee. Some char and bitterness add an edge to an otherwise silky stout. Medium bodied, but pretty velvety and oily which fluffs it up a bit. Very nice! A bit over-roasted perhaps, but delicious nevertheless.
