3.31/5  rDev -16%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very dark brown, near black body beneath a light tan head that's a bit on the thin side.

Smell: Roasty nose of darkened malts with just a hint of basic chocolate and a touch of dark fruit.

Taste: A light chary, ashen roast with a minimal backing of chocolate and estery fruitiness. Minimal hop character, bitterness. While waiting for the coffee character and some soft, succulent oats to burst forward, well, that's when you hit the drying, lightly fruity finish with a bit of alcohol. This ride is over.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Just a bit of medium carbonation.

Overall: A little thin and lackluster considering the words "oatmeal" and "coffee" being prominently featuring in its name. Hey, I want the version Zach had!

Draft at Grapevine. Cola black pour, nice heavy cream colored head.

Aroma, mild coffee, roast malt and some dark chocolate. Its a little light here.

Taste, roast malt, peat, some herbal hop notes, well integrated coffee. Finishes a mocha coffee.

About mid bodied, nice and creamy. Very easy drinking. Up there with the Octoberfest as my favorite from these guys.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

appearance: Very stout dark, nearly opaque, some cola highlights. Fairly thin tan head.
smell: Very pleasing imo though not a lot going on.Pretty mild cocoa with some sweetness. I would not have guessed coffee if it hadn't been in the name.
taste: much like the nose. I like this though it's pretty much a "light weight" not much coffee or stout richness. Nice finish with a touch of bitterness that's overcome by a bit of sweetness.
overall: Nice enough, not something I'll be seeking out.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark brown with a light amber tinge only when held to the light, 3 fingers of deep beige head, nice random lacing.

S: Dark toasted notes, coffee, dark chocolate, light smokiness, creamy.

T: Dark chocolate, banana, iron metallic iron, light sweetness, toasted bitterness. Coffee? Sure, there’s some black sweetened coffee in there as well.

M: Medium smooth, slightly oily body, medium low carbonation.

O: Fairly well done brew by this brewery. Not wowing me, just more than okay. Got it in Greenville, SC at Wholefoods. Drank in Pensacola, FL, July 27, 2014.

Bottles January 20, 2014.

Pours pitch black, with a one finger latte colored head. Nose is earthy coffee, a bit like FBS without the chocolate. Coffee actually seems less pronounced on the palate. A touch of oatmeal sweetness comes through that's pretty nice as well. Flavor has solid hang time on the palate as well. Not that I mind. Mouthfeel fairly creamy.

Overall, a great stout, but not pronounced enough in any category to choose it over WNB or FBS.
