A date of one sort or another is stamped on the side of this indicating a date of 01 24 12. I am not sure of the origin or meaning but the barely visible date is on the label. Beer pours from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Emerges pitch black with a small, quite dark, mocha colored head atop the beverage. Generous lacing as the head fades somewhat quickly.
Aroma is stout-like but not quite as advertised. According to the bottle: "Brewing our oatmeal stout with a blend of three raosted malts creates intense coffee and dark chocolate notes, while the addition of flaked oats adds a creamy mouthfeel." I may agree with the end of this statement, but I disagree with the first assertion. The chocolate and coffee are nicely mixed in with other aromas, but in no way are they worthy of pulling out for individual recogntion. I would say coffee plays a bigger role than chocolate, but altogether the aroma was typical and not remarkable.
I enjoyed this beer. I was hoping for a little more coffee since it was specifically mentioned on the bottle: perhaps that is unfair but that is my opinion. I am on the fence about recommending this one. I wouldnt not recommend it but this one fits nicely in the "average to slightly above average" category.

Draft at 40 degrees (approximately) into standard pint glass
Aroma of roasted malt
Head small (scooped off by bartender), light brown, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing fair – narrow rings of small bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor begins with roasted malt bitterness which lessens with time. No alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, oily, soft carbonation
This oatmeal stout lacks the velvety palate of most; instead it is more like an IPA with an oily feel. The bitterness is acceptable. Not as enjoyable as I was hoping.
Serving type: on-tap

This is the most complete oatmeal stout I have ever had! As soon as you pour this beer into a glass it feels your nostrils will wonderful chocolate and coffee notes. These are the exact flavors that attack your taste buds. I dare you to find a better oatmeal stout... It won't happen!
