22oz bottle. As an unapologetic fan of a certain 1980s pop-rock duo, the name of this beer takes me a lot farther than the cutesy brewing theme espoused on the label. M-E-T-H-O...

This beer pours a solid, chestnut brown-tinted black, with the slightest of basal cola 'highlights', and two fingers of puffy, beige raw cake dough head, which leaves but a low berm of ebbing lace around the glass as it hurriedly evaporates.

It smells of grainy, bready malt, al dente oatmeal, more bitter than sweet cocoa, black licorice - of the diluted ouzo sort, and tame earthy, leafy hops. The taste is semi-sweet, fairly dense chocolate malt, a free-radical bready graininess, understated oatmeal porridge, faded dry licorice root, working-class weedy, earthy hops, and a somewhat unexpected, and thankfully subtle metallic alcohol edge.

The bubbles are present, and do an all right job of obeying the style's tacit rule of keeping to themselves, the body a decently hefty medium weight, and smooth enough, the hops and weirdly relevant booze having just a bit too much ingress. It finishes mostly off-dry, the dry chocolate oatmeal mush (I'm not getting the purported cookie stripe) sensibility planting its flag, square and true.

An agreeable enough oatmeal stout, the standard milky smoothness tempered to a fair degree by the graininess of the oat influx, and the increasingly sharp licorice edge. While not exactly 'Out of Touch', this is a small sidestep from the norm, and enjoyably drinkable for it.

A: Mahogany brown tending towards black with a small tan head.

S: Oats, biscuit, coffee combined with nicely roasted malts.

T: Baked bread with semi sweet chocolate morsels and a hint of oak.

M: Medium body and maybe a tan thin for my tastes.

O: Decent stout, but drinks a tad bit more like a porter. Enjoyable none the less.

Found this beer to be a GREAT let down. Very thin with little flavor.
