4.59/5 rDev +10.3%
Appearance - Very dark brown - not quite black. Decent mocha colored head as you would expect for the style.
Smell - coffee, chocolate, alcohol, slight hops
Taste - Very nice. Consistent with the scent - coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. A noticeable hop presence for the style. Reminds me of Stone Smoked Porter in terms of the hops...something I really enjoy for the style as it balances things out a bit.
Mouthfeel - Nice but nothing amazing. Lower carbonation.
Overall - I really enjoy this beer. For a non-imperial stout, one of my favorites. @ $10 for a six pack in MA it's a great value. Will become part of the normal rotation.

3.58/5 rDev -13.9%
Poured from a 22 oz bomber cellared for over a year.
Look: Poured a dark black with a 1/2 inch long lasting tan head. Nice lacing.
Smell. Lots of malt and coffee. Can imagine the oats involved.
Taste. Nice oatmeal flavor. Lots of coffee, even after a year. A little bitterness at the end.
Mouth. A little weak and light, but maybe right for a 7% beer. Light carbonation.
Overall, nice oatmeal stout. Would like a little less bitterness.
