3.05/5 rDev -10.3%
Pours a light tan head. Nice lace. Color is a dark copper brown.
Aroma: Creamy chocolate. Light roast. Sweet and malty. Milky.
Taste: Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and caramel. Sweet, milky, and creamy.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends with a rootbeer flavored aftertaste.
Overall, this was pretty easy to drink. It was very light. Not as flavorful as other oatmeal stouts, however.

A: Black with a small but steady head; lacing is an even coat down the glass
S: Roasted malts and oat presence up front; a slight coffee presence; not too dominating but somewhat pleasant--a bit boring
T: Oats and slightly burnt roasted malt up front--very smooth but flavors are fairly muted; there is a nice oat presence in the back of the tongue--but an annoying sweetness pervades and creates a fairly unbalanced flavoring
F: Creamy with an even mouth coat--too thin on the back end
D: Drinkable and smooth but the sweet oat quality is a bit wearing in the end

From scribble notes.
Appearance: Poured for me into a pint glass (I think that is the only type of glass I have ever had) with the usual 1/4 inch head. The beer is nice looking. Near black. The tan head lasted for a little while, some decent lace.
Smell: Touch of roasted malt, kinda like burnt oats. Some coffee-like aroma as well.
Taste: Bluntly - a watered down stout. Some roasted malts, a little sweet even. Not anything speaking of "oatmeal". The better oatmeal stouts I have had let me know there was something to them.
Mouthfeel: Thin and a touch watery. Again the better oatmeal stouts I have had are full bodied, sometimes chewy. This was like a plain old stout.
Drinkability: Easy to drink, although some may be put off by the color, this is really a lite stout. Good to look at, ok to smell, then its all downhill from there for me. Try something else first.

Poured on tapo at old chicago in omaha.
This one pours up ok. The typical frothy nitro head is present giving way to a smooth first sip. The aroma is non-existant very poor...even in the cubical driven cookie cutter world of old chicago you can tell this one is subpar. The taste is ultra sweet, with a finish like water and suger. There is a bit of smokey haze in the background but not enough to add any sort of character. This one is very ok at best. A good stout to make someone who doesn't like guiness or Goose Islands Oatmeal because it is "to heavy for me" feel good.
