A: black with think, sustaining head; lacing is present but more sparse than expected
S: roasted nuttiness, chocolate, coffee, as expected
T: the lacing belies the fact that this is not a nice, creamy stout. However, there is also nothing unexpected. Roasted notes of coffee, roasted grain. Do not note the chocolate from the smell.
M: as stated, not creamy and coating as I expected, but the bitterness of toasted nuts does kind if linger.
O: solid, although not exceptional, offering. No surprises good or bad.

This is better than I remembered other examples from this brewery being, but I will need to review that. It's a reasonable representation of the style. It opens with just a bit of aroma and a normal look - motor oil.

The aroma though weak is OK - nothing wrong here. The taste is a roasty, hoppy affair, maybe more so than many of the style. It doesn't seem particularly complex, but it is pleasant.

The aftertaste is easy to take (it fades to a little bit of bitter). It would have been nice to see this same brew a bit more over the top - imperial. As is, it is a good value and not an insult to drink.

Picked up a six pack of this seasonal for only $3.99(leftover seasonal stock) at Oliver's in Albany, NY.

A-Solid black opaque. The head is thick, creamy, and almost milk chocolate in color.

S-Sweet roasted grains, some cocoa, and some coffee. Everything that you would expect and want to be there.

T-The taste starts with the sweet caramel malts, and almost buttery smooth oatmeal flavors. Then the bitter roasted malts come in, and it finishes nicely with cocoa and coffee flavors.

M-Medium to full body with appropriate carbonation.

O-A really decent oatmeal stout with the full range of rich flavors that you want from the style. It seems to be well balanced, and is really hitting the spot during this chilly Spring night after a long day in the sun. I have nothing bad to say about this beer; and, at a price like that, how could I complain?
