Appearance: Looks like a porter, which is what I thought this was at first for some reason. Perfectly clear ruby black appearance, with a ring of brown head and a little bit of lacing from the initial three finger or so head that was floating on top. Looks very good.

Smell: The beer's low point. It just smells pretty average for the style. Chocolate malt sort of aromas in there with a bit of the usual roasted coffee. There's also a trace of dark fruits and something I can't quite pinpoint. It's almost a phenol quality, I think? It's very mild regardless, and none of it is off-putting -- just a pretty standard smelling oatmeal stout. Nothing to be blown away by.

Taste/feel: Yeah, the feel is definitely oatmeal stout-esque rather than like a porter... no doubt. It has that "light but creamy" thing going on, like a Guinness or the like. I feel like it could use a tick more creaminess, but it's still pretty damn good where it's at. The taste is also quite good as well. Coffee and chocolate on the start, with dark fruits then coming in, with a bit of oatmeal and quite a lot of nuttiness on the finish... maybe a slight char sort of thing as well.

This is a very good oatmeal stout. I'm liking it. At just under 5%, it'd be an excellent stout to session on a cool fall evening or in the winter while shoveling or blowing the snow. Well worth trying.
