No head really with scattered lacing on a jet black body. Aroma is light like so many of this brewers brews with mostly light roasted malts and coffee and a subtle vanilla sweetness. Flavors include roasted malts, oats, coffee bitterness and minimal earthy hops. Medium to full body and light to moderate carbonation. A little dark chocolate sweetness rounds this one out. A nice traditional oatmeal stout as drinkable and good as these can be.

Pours black with one and a half fingers of brown head. Head has decent retention but doesn't leave much lacing. Smells of roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and grain. Taste starts off very roasty, before bitter chocolate comes through. Oats provide a bit of silkiness. More roast than a typical oatmeal stout, but really tasty.

Served on draft at Ashley's in Westland, MI.

Appearance- Pours jet black with a 1/4 inch jamocha head that slowly fizzles out into a veil-y halo around the glass.

Smell- Burnt roasty coffee notes, oatmeal tartness. No doubt where this one's going.

Taste- Cold Sumatran coffee, a little booziness, dry bitter malts, faint black licorice notes, robust Cameroon wrap cigar finish coats the mouth. Tart sweet oatmeal sugar on the teeth as an afterthought. A good example of the style.

Mouthfeel- smooth and creamy with a slight mineral water fizz. Pretty standard.

Overall- a great example of the style. Nothing extraordinary, but if I wanted an oatmeal stout, I'd reach for this one any time. A very sessionable stout. Perhaps a good base to build off of for some added chocolate, coffee, barrel aging, etc. for Greenbush in the future. I dig stouts, so this would be a go-to for sure.

Cheers!
