4.66/5 rDev +9.9%
Sampled June 2014 from bottle in pint glass.
Appearance: Pitch black, dark color, with a nice dark tan head. The head lasted a long time.
Smell: There are roasted malt aromas, along with some strong coffee aromas. Some hops in the aroma, as well as a sweetness from the oatmeal as well. Nice combination and balance between the hops, oatmeal, and the malts.
Taste: Full-bodied with great balance of malt and hops. There is a hint of sweetness that may be due to the oats, but it has an excellent taste. The combination of strong hops and roasted malts and strong alcohol give this drink powerful flavors.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, but very smooth. Very creamy, probably due to the oatmeal.
Overall: This was the first time I tried this beer, but I love it. Overall an excellent stout. I will definitely look for this and buy it again.

Look: Pours very dark. Basically black. Very little head, but very dark tan-brown in color. Very little lacing. But it's a good looking stout.
Smell: Strong chocolate smell up front, with a little bit of cherry and a touch of brown sugar. Like a chocolate covered cherry. Very good smell.
Taste: Almost the same as the smell, chocolate and cherry and brown sugar. A hint of coffee bitterness at the end.
Mouthfeel: Fulled bodied. Medium levels of carbonation.
Overall: This is fantastic. One of the better stouts I've had. I've had so many good stouts, it's hard to say this IS the best, but it's not far off.
