On tap at 44 Stone in Columbia, MO.
A - Poured an opaque, dark, dark brown color with a one-finger, light brown head of foam.
S - It smelled roasty with some coffee, chocolate and caramel. There was a piney presence.
T - Good roasty flavor with coffee, flaked oats, dark chocolate and caramel. Some piney hop presence added bitterness.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium-bodied beer with a dry, clean finish.
O - This is a very good oatmeal brown ale. I really am starting to love this style and 4 Hands has nailed it.

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.

pours out an overly frothy brown colour with a humongous light tan head that doesn't reduce. spotty lace. this beer is over carbonated, as are the the other bottles in the four pack. typical brown ale aromas of cocoa and caramel. smells like a liquid candy bar. the taste, other than the chocolate malt used is hard to pin down due to the excessive prickly carbonation. i'm going to end this review because there is obvious issues with the carbonation and making any further observations is futile.
overall i'm disappointed with this beer. and i'm probably not going to get to sample this anytime soon.
