4/5  rDev +5%

I recently had this beer at The Washington House in Sellersville, PA. This beer is brewed in Perkasie, PA and the brewery itself is only about 2 miles away.

Served in a goblet-like glass

A - Beer arrived with a half-finger, mocha-colored head. It's a very deep brown, almost black color, totally opaque. Nice lacing left after drinking.

S - A nice coffee aroma

T - A huge coffee presence mixed with some chocolate-like sweetness. The beer is rather bitter but it goes down really smooth. The oatmeal isn't really noticeable. The ABV is slightly noticeable but never overpowers the beer.

M - A medium body. Medium carbonation. Leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste

O - I really enjoyed this beer. The brewery is less than 3 miles from my home and I'd gladly pick up a growler of this. I've had several of Free Will's offerings and I've been impressed with them all.

Cheers!

Aroma is coffee and hints of nuts. Pours a medium brown with tan head. Taste is not exceptional, but has coffee and some roasted malt. As usual for American craft brews, it has a high ABV which detracts from the experience. A mild craft beer like this should not hit you so hard. If I wanted to get sloshed fast I would just have a malt liquor.

Pours a translucent brown color with a khaki medium size head that recedes rather quickly.

Aromas begin heavy on the java with coffee grinds, then some toasted bready malt, toffee and some minimal cocoa powder. Not detecting much of an Oatmeal presence.

The tastes follow the nose with lots if coffee balanced by a strong molasses, cocoa and a nutty, biscuity maltiness. Sweetness is minimal.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium-low carbonation. Finish is slightly bitter but mainly subpar for any beer advertising Oatmeal; it is missing that creamy oat induced chewiness.

Overall this was a tasty beer and quite drinkable any day of the year but especially tasty late fall after a nice dinner. The only ding for me is the weak mouthfeel and semi-watery mouthfeel for much a strong beer.
