look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

16 oz. pint poured at the brewery, unknown brewing/packaging date, drank over 30 minutes

A: 3/3 - jet black, low clarity (cannot read or see through), initial frothy khaki colored head settled into a 1/4 finger lacing, tight carbonation bubbles, moderate alcohol legs

S: 9/12 - big roasted malts - chocolate, coffee and burnt toast, slight PNW hop character and oatmeal; muted alcohols; no diacetyl, no DMS

T: 15/20 - moderate bitterness on the front of the tongue that succumbs to a rich roasted malt character that compliments the aroma; these flavors continue on the late palate with some warming alcohol and oats; finishes dry and inviting

M: 4/5 - moderate body, creaminess, moderate carbonation

O: 8/10 - very good oatmealt stout and one of the underrated surprises from my TG trip; would have liked some more body and malt complexity but that's starting to get nit picky; highly recommended for the cheap price point ($4.50/pint)

TOTAL - 39/50

Had it on tap once. Drinking from the bottle now. Medium dark body with minimal head. Chocolate oat aroma. Smooth velvety mouthfeel. Lots of cocoa taste with some roasted notes. Yummy.
