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

Dark cola brown, small head dissipated quickly. Almost no lacing

smell: roasted malts, mild hopiness, slight coffee bitterness

Taste. Nice roasted maltiness, a little bit of bitter baking chocolate. Very little to no ABV presence.

Mouthfeel: A little weak in the texture for an oatmeal stout, but very decent. Very smooth drinker.

Overall a good beer to enjoy if youre not in the mood for anything big.

Serving type: bottle
