A - Deep dark black not much to say. Head was fairly good not perfect since it fizzes to a mild lace ring yet lacing is decent.

S - Fairly balanced stout showcasing the mild chocolate and balanced coffee you would expect. Stronger than Guinness which is great.

T - Very balanced milk chocolate and subtle roast flavors. Oats are nicely balanced and unlike the imperial stout this stout is balanced, sweet, and delicious.

M - Medium bodied, creamy and a delicious stout.

Overall worth picking up. Simple, complex, and tasty.

Darn near black. Seriously opaque. Fluffy, thick, rich head. Slow fade to a nice covering. Good amount of lace. Aroma is surprisingly sweet. Lots of roasted grains underneath with a bit of dark fruitiness. A touch of diacetyl. Taste is smooth and roasty. Burnt toffee and charcoal. Coffee flows through like a velvety latte. Finish has a nice firm earthy bitterness. Feel is on the lighter side with a gentle but crisp carbonation. Good solid brew

A- pours dark black, almost opaque. Very thin dark tan head that dissipates quickly to leave no head or lace.

S- dark roasted malt, smoky camp fire, bacon and cheddar cheese spread, grainy oats.

T- the smoky notes follows the nose, almost tastes like smoked bacon, then turns slightly sweet with notes of fig, prune, and chocolate, and oats. Finishes very sweet with noticeable hops.

M- medium body, low carbonation, and slightly creamy mouthfeel

O- a bit sweeter than the average oatmeal stout, which makes it enjoyable, but a slow sipper. Still worth trying!

Poured into a conic pint glass.

The beer immediately smells more "oatmealish" than any oatmeal stout I've had. A good hearty dose of oats, followed by the roasted, bitter coffee underneath. I want to say there's a hint of bitter hops in the nose as well.

The taste of this beer does not follow the aroma. There's more of a roasted, smokey character first, with drier, dark coffee notes in the finish. But some oats, faintly.

The beer finishes dry and chalky.

Let's not forget what it looks like! I cannot really judge appearance first thing, but half-way down, a huge sheet of foamy lacing coats the glass. The mocha colored head, chunky and foamy, has dissipated to a few random patches with a bubbly ring around the glass. The beer itself is a deep dark coffee black with a good cola-brown hue in the light.
