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

Pours a cola color with a tight tan head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of coffee and roasted notes.

Tastes of the roasted notes with a slight sweetness. Coffee and cocoa notes lead off with a slightly burnt overtone. Slight roasted and earthy bitterness comes through. Mild brown sugar sweetness comes through along with some of the oatmeal. I also pick up dark fruit notes as it warms which complements some of the sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium-full with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a good oatmeal stout, but is not quite cost efficient ($9 a bomber).

a: first pour indicates this is wayyyyy over carbonated. the more i leave it sit, the more foam comes slowly gushing out. after a few minutes of the bottle settling down and the head reducing to a controllable amount: its a liquidy light black color. still large 4 finger off white head thats pretty fizzy, but at the same time pretty solid

s: smell is a little hard to pick up through the head, but its a nice blend of roasted malts, dark chocolate, toffee, caramel, prunes, raisins, a hint of cocoa powder and coffee beans. there is some lactose creaminess in here as well

t: given the carbonation issue i'm having a hard time telling if this is how its supposed to taste. i'm picking up huge amounts of vanilla and milk chocolate. roasted malts, slight black licorice, molasses & brown sugar, with a big kick of malt sweetness on the end with some cola-like flavors

m: overcarbonated. feels really light in the mouth - too light for a stout, thats due to the carbonation levels

o: welp, honestly the flavor is alright. i can the flavors here are good, and from what i can pick up it blended nicely - and im really digging the amount of vanilla in here, its a nice treat. my issue is the carbonation level - way too high. it was a slow gusher for sure. probably just a bad bottle, but its all i got. gotta take some points off for that

22oz bottle split two ways – standard pint glass
Notes from 10/18/13

A: Inky black body, dark as can be with an oily sheen. Fairly poor head retention and virtually no stick or cling to the glass.

S: Rich espresso melds with cocoa and dark malted grains with a faint hint of smoke on the trailer. Fairly clean aromatics with some deep roast character.

T: Dark roast grain and toasted cereals fuses with some smoky espresso beans and a touch of bakers chocolate. Nothing harsh or abrasive here. I am getting some faint dark fruity esters as well. There is a low amount of hop bitterness and no alcohol comes across in the flavor. Very smooth balance and rich robust flavors. Really quite tasty.

M: Somewhat light in body but with a very smooth and creamy texture. Lush and velvety with a light drying finish and clean exit.

D: This is a great rendition of the style. I simply do not comply with some of these other reviews. Perhaps they have fine tuned the recipe? Great developed flavor profile here and not super dry or astringent with the roast. Could possible use a little more body but otherwise really well done.

Another good oatmeal stout. Nice appearance, wonderful smell, awesome taste, hits of chocolate coffee light oak very nice. Not the best oatmeal stout in the world but worth picking up if you have the chance. A Top Ten Stout!!! And that says a lot because I love stouts! Eat Drink and be Merry!
