Perfectly balanced oatmeal stout with subtle hints of oatmeal, caramel, and chocolate. Highly recommend.

Poured from a can into a tumbler on 04.15.14.

A: Motor oil. 1/2 finger tan head.

S: Toffee, caramel, coffee, milk chocolate.

T: Milk chocolate, coffee dominate. Roasted malt is there too.

M: Creamy.

O: This is a perfectly balanced oatmeal stout. It is sweet, but it doesn't go too far. It's very subtle all around in terms of flavor.

Rating: A

Ever o little light tries to peek through this awesome ebony color. Head is relatively normal with little or no lacing. Aroma is of bread, malt and a hint of chocolate. Taste is pure delight, with hints of oatmeal, chocolate and milky creaminess. Bitter ending does not take away from the balance of this beer. Smooth and very very drinkable
