Reviewing from notes. Poured from the tap at a local BBQ place.

The beer looks very nice, almost completely black, a bit of light coming in when held to light.

Smell was primarily sweet malt with a touch of roasted.

Taste is great and is packed with roasted coffee flavor with a slight bitterness underneath a slightly sweet character.

Mouthfeel was very disappointing - none of the creamy smoothness that I love and was almost cola-like in its carbonation level.

Overall pretty good, but not the best oatmeal stout. Nice flavor but just not very smooth like expected.

Pours very dark with a bit of head. Roasted/burnt flavor is the champ in this brew. Not a bad thing persay. This is a big stout, no pulled punches here. This stout talks the talk and walks the walk. I don't like the aftertaste too much. I can ger better Oatmeal Stouts for less money so I will.

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.
