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

I was served this brew at a recent family get-together in Columbia. Not the kind of crew I would think would be walking around with an oatmeal stout (in-laws), so I was pleasantly surprised when I spotted this and stole one from a cooler. Side poured with standard vigor into a pint glass.

Appearance - Pours a deep brown color with a decent one finger head, minimal head retention and minimal lacing. No real surprises on the packaging either. Remarkably mediocre, basically just pours exactly how you would think an oatmeal stout would. Which is a good thing, I guess, since they didn't screw it up, just nothing stands out.

Smell - Roasted malts, some chocolate notes, coffee, and a hint of dark fruits. All very subdued though, again nothing really exciting.

Taste - Much the same as the aforementioned. While it was good, it wasn't great. The chocolate washed the palate first, followed by the fruits and hints of coffee and the malts.

Mouthfeel - Certainly could have been thicker for an oatmeal stout. There's more beef in three sips of Founders than in this whole beer. Just seemed pretty watery and thin. It was smooth and relatively creamy though.

Overall - I can sum this beer up in just a few words: good, not great. Nothing stands out about it at all. Would I drink it again for free? Sure. Would I buy it? Probably not.

Creamy sweetness upon first wash of the palate. Slight bitterness more prevalent at tip and along back of tongue as it warms and you drink more of it. A bit thinner than anticipated. Fantastic with grilled sausage. Overall a nice offering in the oatmeal variety. Very nice to see these ales making a comeback. Personal favorites.
