12oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass. The brew appears black in color with a tan head that fades leaving patchy lace sticking to the glass. Some brown clarity is noted when held to the light.
It has an overall muted aroma despite being allowed to warm up in my glass. What is noted is a bit of roast and something almost along the lines of being like cola. Not bad but also not the most enjoyable or expected aromatics.
The taste isbroasty and mildly bitter sonewhat like day old coffee. There is a bit of bakers chocolate coupled eith earth and some minerals fill out the void across the backend. Not terrible but also not the most enjoyable either.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of prickly carbonation. This was an ok offering that sort of missed the mark. The cola aspect was weird and it missed on the expected oatmeal inclusion in both flavor and feel. Its not a beer I would purchase again.

Bottle poured into a pint glass
A- One finger of quickly dissipating head with minimal lacing. The appearance can be improved distinctly with a vigorous pour. Appealing black, opaque body.
S- Negligible bouquet of an earthy dark malt
T- Taste is where this beer makes its mark. It impressively capitalizes on its bold chocolate/coffee character without succumbing to the typically bitter aftertaste found in most oatmeal stouts.
M- Mouthfeel is sub-par for this style. Misses the opportunity to be chewy, substantial and filling by being far too thin and inconsequential.
O- The superb taste of this beer outweighs its deviation from the expected oatmeal stout style. This is the second Breckenridge Brewery beer I've sampled (SummerBright Ale being the other) and I've found both to have superior taste and drinkability. Breckenridge is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries. Even with its shortcomings, this is my favorite oatmeal stout and an excellent session beer.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an oversize wine glass.
Appearance: Pitch black body with a tan head that is weak for the style, but otherwise okay. Leaves a nice lacing.
Smell: Roasted malts more than anything. Touches of coffee and chocolate. Not picking up much oat.
Taste: Just kind of tastes like a decent American stout. Kind of disappointing considering I have really enjoyed everything I've had from them. Still, it's not bad at all.
Mouthfeel: Nice, smooth, creamy, medium to light, especially for the style. Very easily drinkable.
This is kind of just there. I would drink it again if I saw it, but it won't call my name if you know what I mean.

I poured this into my tulip glass. There was minimal head on this very dark body. You won't be able to see any light through this one.
Off the top of this beer I get a healthy dose of coffee and tobacco. I also get a decent burnt smell from the roast in the grain.
The flavor falls off pretty quickly. It tastes like a very simple cup of coffee. I don't get anything else other than that. On the end you get that bitterness that a cup of coffee would bring.
This is a decent oatmeal stout. It is really like coffee with alcohol in the flavoring. It is less like beer, and more like the cold coffee.
