look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a glass and got a nice looking head that settled into a thinner lacing. The color was a dark brown/black that looked almost like coffee at times. The smell had a fruity and maple scent that I picked up. The taste was very smooth something that I was not expecting. The mouthfeel was kind of thick after a couple of sips. This is s stout that I could enjoy for an hour or 2 but after that its too thick on the palate for my taste. Overall a very good one here if you find one give it a try.

Typical dark, opaque black. Dark brown layer of creamy foam. Aroma is layers of dark roasted malt, chocolate milk, medium roast coffee. Semi-sweet notes swirl around creating layers of flavor accompanied by a medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is moderate. Very solid brew. As oatmeal stouts go, there's nothing outstanding here, but this is an enjoyable one and certainly worth a try.

A - Pours a clear dark brown/black color, nice carbonation, small creamy head, nice lacing throughout the drink.

S - Scents of malts, chocolate, caramel/toffee.

T - The taste is very sweet and malty.

M - Medium body.

D - Drinkable. I really enjoyed this brew, but the first sip was quite different after a few more sip's I loved it.
