Pours a dark coffee black with a tan head that dissipates relatively fast. A lot of roast and black coffee on the nose with subtle chocolatey undertones. The taste is creamy and smooth with plenty of black coffee and a noticeable oatmeal presence. There is some metallic and sour presence on the finish but this is not unwelcome. This is a really smooth stout with about as much to offer as an oatmeal stout needs to offer. Probably the best basic oatmeal stout I've had.
