With an ABV of 6.0% this Oatmeal Coffee Stout has a nice presence to it that makes this a very drinkable stout.
There is not much carbonation within this stout and the medium mouthfeel to the offering actually serves it quite well. The creamy and smooth nature of this stout is sort of what you might exactly hope for in a really good oatmeal stout. The mouthfeel is satin smooth during the entire pint.
Having had this beer on draught poured in a normal pint glass, the bartender allowed a lot of the head to settle and poured the stout nicely to leave about a quarter inch of tan head left at the top of the glass. The stout itself is a rich and deep chocolate color with very little light working its way through the glass. While drinking the stout there is a nice lacing left along the glass with that same tan to off-white color that was present in the head.
The aroma for the Oatmeal Coffee Stout is spot on and has a pleasant roasted coffee smell that almost jumps out of the glass. There is a certain sweetness in the nose as well that works to balance the coffee aroma. The roasted malts are highlighted in this offering and if the taste is as delicious as the aroma is inviting we are in for a good stout.
Everything that you might have been hoping for when you took your first smell of the pint comes true in a big way once you take your first sip. There is a balanced brilliance to this stout that leaves you wondering why more microbreweries cannot make a stout as nice as this one. The coffee first hits the taste buds in a big way and the coffee highlights the quality of the roast used in the brewing process as there is not the slightest hint of any burnt coffee in the taste. There is a sweetness that also works its way into the stout behind the coffee, not in a milk stout kind of way, but rather in a way that almost perhaps just mentally gives the impression of a greater creamy nature to this stout. Roasted malts and a bit of dark chocolate rounds out the taste.

Appearance: Very dark brown, near black body with a creamyish, medium-sized, tan-hued head.
Smell: There's a scent of dark roast coffee alongside lightly ashen roasted malt, with nominal chocolate and caramel. Lightly tangy fruitiness.
Taste: A dark crooked roasted maltiness, a hint of underlying, sustained char. Dark chocolate, a light sweetness. Sharp snap of dark fruit. Very low citrus, herb hop character and bitterness. A bit more tangy fruitiness on the drying, roasty finish.
Mouthfeel: Just a half-notch above medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Decent and acceptable, though not outstanding.
Serving type: on-tap
