3.36/5 rDev -15.2%
Poured from a 3 months aged 22oz bottle.
A: Pours a dark deep brown with very minimal purple amber tones to light. Initially a creamy coffee colored head of medium consistency.
S: Initial is malty cocoa powder. Cocoa is really the most overpowering tone. Some subtle pumpkin-like esters mixed with coffee tones.
T: Early and extremely sweet malts mix with a vinegar like backbone and spice cake. Cocoa, lactose, and burnt malt combine to form some sort of mildy sour chocolate concentrate. The acetic acid really becomes apparent on the late palate. There are some subtle squash/pumpkin esters i attribute to the yeast. After taste, is pure cocoa powder.
M: Acidic, wet and thin. High moderate level of carbonation makes the chocolate flavor explode on the tongue. Low moderate warming from the alcohol. A little astringent and too acidic. The level of carbonation brings the pH a little to low and makes it somewhat vinegar-like. Was looking for more oatmeal protein to coat the mouth.
O: Not what I was expecting from an "Oatmeal Stout." The base was much too thin and the sweet and sour melancholy left me thinking I was drinking a sour. The cocoa tones are unique and strong, like huffing a box of pure coca, but the overall taste and balance were a little lacking.

On-tap at FFF
A - Dark chocolate brown body with a nice chocolate one finger head
S - Milk chocolate, roasted malt, and hopped up with pine
T - Reminds me of a sweeter, thicker alpha klaus. Milk chocolate, roasted malt, slighty smokey and has a slight bitter pine hops. Finish is dark chocolate with light pine that lingers on.
MF - Light yet creamy body that you'd expect from an oatmeal stout
O - Imagine a sweeter oatmeal stout version of alpha klaus and you have backmasking. It has the chocolate and roasted malt that you'd expect from an oatmeal stout while also having a good hop presence that you'd expect from FFF

22oz bottle dated 3/27/14 poured into tulip glass
A - Dark black as if trapping all light. A tall tan head slowly gives way to a light layer with lacing on the glass.
S - Malty! Nice rosted malts and a bit of boozieness. Coffee
T - Slight coffee notes. Sweet and malty with maybe a little hop charactaristcs on the end
M - This is more of an American oatmel stout... thinner and less smooth than it's English brother. The oats don't set it up for the full body you typically expect.
O - Pretty good American version of the Oatmeal Stout. I prefer the English version with a fuller body and silkier mouth feel.
