Fairly standard interpretation of the style in my opinion, but somewhat above average nonetheless. Burnt roast, coffee and chocolate appear in varying proportions. Medium feel and appropriate carbonation.

In fact, all the beers seemed to have a very fit level of carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

Serving type: on-tap
