Had at the brewpub in tap 1/11/13
Served in a pint glass

I'll be honest, this was probably my fourth or fifth beer of the night, but it was tasty! Got chocolate and maybe a hint of coffee in the taste and smell. This is by far the best stout I've had from 3 Floyd's. Next time I'll try and be a bit more sober for a proper review, but this was a awesome brew. If your at the brewpub get a pint and enjoy it!

Nothing special, best quality was the thickness from the oatmeal

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.
