look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4
A: Pours black with decent head that quickly dwindles down to almost nothing except for the edges. Decent lacing on the sides. Kinda wish it looked a little more viscous, personally.
S: Some roasted malts that as it warms develops a burnt smell to it. Some chocolate there as well.
T: A nice roasted flavor hits you first followed by some bitterness and closing out with the oats. The aftertaste is a nice blend of all three flavor profiles, with burnt like qualities developing from the roasted component.
M: A little thinner and more carbonated than I prefer my stouts. I wish it would be a little more fuller as I definitely prefer my stouts to possess a creamy and velvety attribute.
O: A nice oatmeal stout. Oatmeal stouts are one of my favorite styles of beer and I appreciate when Oatmeal Stouts incorporate some bitterness into their flavor profile (while also enjoying that others dont). Breckenridge Brewery did a good job with that on this one while also capturing the roastiness and sweet "oatiness" I seek in the style. The thinness of this is a bit of a buzzkill and does limit its potential. Overall, it's a good oatmeal stout but won't be confused with the bests of the style.

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.
