Chose this over black-heart because of the crazy awesome label art. I love 3-F's creative designs.
A - Deep dark brown/black color. Pours thick with khaki colored creamy head with good lacing.
S - Lots of hops at the beginning which I wasn't expecting but came out pretty good. After warming the malt and roasted tones came out along and then the sweet grainy smell that goes with an oatmeal stout.
T - Tons flavor having a robust character with a malty, roasty, chocolaty, and some like toffee/caramel taste along with some hops on the back end. There is some bitterness from the roasted malt and hops but is pretty balanced with the sweetness.
M - Full mouth-feel with moderate to low carbonation. Silky feel and a nice bitterness that makes it a great beer for occasional drinking.
Overall, this oatmeal stout is different than your standard "Samuel Smith" and it is pretty delicious. It isn't as heavy as a RIS and it is a tasty brew. It has everything for the dark beer drinker who likes a little american hops in there. It's also a nice change of pace if you are used to drinking dry stouts like Guinness. I would strongly recommend this to anyone that likes darker beer.

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.
