Pours a near perfect pitch black, small head of tan foam

Plenty of oats and bitterness in the smell.

Oats, chocolate, mild bitterness, smooth and easy drinking. This is one darned good Oatmeal Stout. Best before April 26th 2016 on the bottom of the can.

Big foamy head that dissipates quickly and leaves behind a roast, bitter, smooth, velvety oatmeal stout. There is something about a big (not in terms of above, but rather the overall taste) dark beer in a can that just allows you to drink and drink and drink. I will for sure be drinking more of this whenever it is around in it's limited capacity.

APPEARANCE: The head is stronger than expected; a full finger rests atop a jet black beer. As the head slowly falls it leaves some nice, thick lacing before the first sip is taken. After a good minute and a half, it finally settles into a thin film of foam covering almost the entire surface of the beer. Underneath, and on the sides of the glass, large bubbles cling to the sides.

SMELL: Tons of roast on the nose here with a little nutty aroma behind it. There’s not a whole lot more here aside from a little dark chocolate, but that’s not a bad thing. The roasty coffee is just really intense and delicious smelling.

TASTE: Not sure if it’s just the big coffee on the nose, but the taste on this one is big time coffee. However, there is a lot more of that dark chocolate on the palate and plenty of nuttiness coming through. Despite the heavy bitterness, there is a subtle, but big enough sweetness to balance the whole beer out. As it warms, the sweet malty flavors begin to overtake the bitter malts. Some subtle, dark fruit flavors also come through.

MOUTHFEEL: The Oatmeal Stout has quite the sparkle for a stout. The body is medium to large. Bitter tones are balanced, especially as the beer warms, by dark fruits and some residual sugars. This is exceptionally easy drinking.

OVERALL: While the Oatmeal Stout is an aggressively bitter, robust, roasty stout, it has just enough balance and body to make this a supremely drinkable beer. I could easily see myself getting lost in a deep session with this beer. Side note, I'm shocked I'm reviewing this before Stoned Trippin. Ha.

12oz can, sample from the brewery.

Tan lacing puts on a show atop the black liquid. Roasty nose with some sweetness. Even roasted grain tone throughout, hits all of the bells and whistles for the style. Very smooth within the medium body. A very well put together beer.

Deep, dark brown body with a thick, foamy, sticky head. Aroma emits notes of charred grain; chocolate and carob; faint sweetness. Chocolate flavors; semi-sweet fudge; twitch of sourness; touch of hop bitterness at the finish. Heavy body; smooth and slick mouthfeel; oily; semi-sweet finish with an increasing dry edge as things progress.

This is a fine, low ABV stout that's thick, smooth, and very tasty.
