3.48/5 rDev -9.1%
650 mL bottle poured a snifter.
Appearance - Black with some transparency. Khaki head. Off balanced collar and good surface wisps.
Smell - Dark roast comes on stronger than coffee. Little bit of vanilla.
Taste - Roasty malts, coffee. Some milk chocolate. Missing a bit of depth, but a decent coffee flavor either way. Roasty malt bitterness, but not a coffee bitterness.
Mouthfeel - A regular stout, so I shouldn't complain about body, but it's thin. Drinkable I guess.
Overall - Not bad. Clean beer and a nice coffee flavor, but not a lot else going on.

4.19/5 rDev +9.4%
A: Great foam. Silky, sticky and very thick thick. Thin bubbles. Deep black.
S: Chocolate and coffee. Dark mahogany. Leather. A bit sweetness on the nose and a touch of alcohol.
T: Awesome. Enough bitter to even out the heavy fatty flavor. Only slightly sweet. Heavy oat. Molasses. Espresso beans come through strong.
M. Dry finish. Thick but still silky. Slight metal mineral finish.
O: Very good. I like how it is surprisingly refreshing for an oatmeal coffee stout. Finishes mostly clean.
