I like the idea of an oatmeal brown, thanks to rudzud for sharing this with me.
Pours a quickly rising brownish fizzy almost 2 finger head that fades at a med pace with lots of fizzy bubbles popping, light whispy lacing, super dark molasses brown color barely any light.
Nose brings lots of brown malts, a little creamy brown malt note, lots of caramel and toffee, little nutty, with a bit milky baker's chocolate note, almost cocoa cream like, a mild roasty like coffee aroma well, an interesting note of vanilla too, and some creamy oats.
Taste starts creamy with more brown malts galore, creamy malts and some creamy oats, a little toasted, with lots of toasty brown malts, caramel, toffee, nutty, etc, as well as more chocolate, melting fancy chocolate like notes, with a little more flavored nutty coffee and vanilla notes. A little earthy bitter hop note on the back end adds a nice touch. Finish is drier but a little sticky, bit more of the earthy almost spicy hops, a little more caramel, nice creamy chocolate as well lingering.
Mouth is med to a bit fuller bod, fairly creamy, nice carb.
Overall pretty nice, delivers what it promises, a nice creamy oatmeal brown ale with great malt characters, nice chocolate and vanilla even, with a little coffee note and a nice kick of hops on the back end adds that great finishing touch, but keeps it quite drinkable.

S: Biscuits. Honey and a slight hint of dark fruits.
T: Follows the nose. Interesting twist on a brown ale.
M: Medium body, and perhaps a bit thin for the style.
O: Interesting flavors.

A - Pours a solid brown color. Its head is small at about 1/2 finger. It does have nice retention and I thought the lacing was excellent
S - Aromas of dark chocolate and coffee beans. The aroma is lighter than I thought it would be but still pleasant
T - Man this is a great tasting beer. Very similar to the aroma but more potent. Again, dark chocolate and coffee beans dominate
M - Extremely smooth. Almost of cooling feeling. Would call it medium to heavy int he mouth.
O - What a great easy drinking beer. It'll be great in the fall for sitting around a campfire. Would even call it borderline sessionable. Will be getting this one again
