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

A - Dark cola brown/black. Medium sized, creamy, smooth, cafe colored head. Great retention leaving a nice patchy lacking.

S - Dark and milk chocolate, roasted nuttiness, and cocoa nibs are abundant. Slightly sweet and slightly bitter.

T - Similar to the nose but slightly sweeter. Some toffee and brown sugar hints are in there. Subtle coffee notes but they play second fiddle to the chocolate/cocoa. A nice roasted malt flavor with a strong roasted nuttiness. No astringency and well balanced sweet and bitterness.

M - Medium body with average to slightly below carbonation. Very smooth and creamy. Great mouthfeel that you expect from an oatmeal stout.

D - Well balanced stout with the bitter and sweet aspects. Chocolate, nuts, cocoa, coffee, cream, etc. blend well together. Easy drinking stout with a nice finish.

Notes: Nice oatmeal stout. Doesn't necessarily wow you, but it is very easy to drink. Nice balance between sweet and bitter with a nice chocolate milk kind of finish. Great, creamy body.
