Bottle dated 7/8/15. Pours nearly black with a brown head which quickly reduces to almost nothing; very unique. Smell of dark fruit, oat, and come coffee. Taste follows closely with roasted malt and some sweetness. Lower carbonation and slightly thin body. Overall, a unique brew, but too much dark fruit and not enough richness that is expected in an oatmeal stout. (371 characters)

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a chalice. Bottle date is July 7th, 15.

Appearance: Pours a dark blackish brown with a moderate amount of bubbles. About a finger of tan head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A sweet and roasty dark malt forward taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, and oats. Dark roasted malt with notes of chocolate, coffee, oats, toast, biscuit, grains, caramel, yeast, and slight smoke. Sweet hints of brown sugar and cream. Light dark fruit hints of cherry and raisin. Also some hints of anise. Very light with the hops. A pretty nice smell.

Taste: Like the smell hints at, a sweet and roasty dark malt driven taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, and oats. Dark roasted malt with upfront notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, oats, biscuit, toast, grains, caramel, smoke, and yeast. Sweet taste of sugar and cream. Notes of anise spicing. Subtle dark fruit undertones of raisin and cherry. Pretty light hop presence. A very solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very creamy, silky, and smooth.

Overall: A pretty good take on a Oatmeal Stout. Good dark malt flavor with a nice balance of sweetness and roast. (1,191 characters)

12 ounce bottle poured into a stout/porter glass.

Impressively thick and chewy dark khaki head over an ebony body. Trickling carbonation is visible. Lacing is light. 4.5

Smells thick with dark toffee-like malts. Cacao-like sticky sweetness. Caramel and spicy hop aroma. Pretty lovely to smell. 4.25

Thick malty flavor, noticeable oatmeal sweetness, caramel and vanilla. Bitter dark chocolate lingers on the finish. 4

Smooth and viscous mouthfeel, albeit a tad thin. Carbonation creates a touch of a soda-like feel and the finish is bittersweet and lingers. 3.75 (566 characters)
