Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of coffee, some roasted malts. Taste is the same, big on coffee, some roasted malts, really not getting any oats. Feels creamy in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours a dark, near black with small cap of brown froth. Scent brings strong notes of roast, ground coffee and light chocolate. Taste again is mostly roast, some coffee grinds and very week presence of advertised chocolate, light fruitiness. Was surprised to see this listed as an oatmeal stout as the body was anything but creamy... light and grainy. Overall, much better Oatmeal and Chocolate stouts out there, decent and drinkable as a plain stout.

3.09/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: pours a black color with a 2" head. Some moderate lace develops.

Smell: roasted malt and a hint of chocolate is all you can detect here.

Taste: roasted malts, prunes, light coffee tones, and barely a hint of chocolate. Soft bitterness here too.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Light crispness to start, smoother and a touch dry at the finish.

Overall: not a very exciting stout and it is a bit thin too. Tough time finishing the glass.

Utterly black, the beer has a moderate tan head. Decent lace. The aroma has a pronounce oat and roasted grain smell. There is a slight astringent and acrid smell....a bit of charcoal too. The taste is similar, very dry and a lot of smoke. Not as much creamy oatmeal flavor as I expected. Still, solid and forceful flavor. Lots of roasted notes. Low hop flavor and moderately high bitterness. Full mouthfeel, but I feel that it could have been far creamier. Overall, this is just an average stout.

I normally would not write a review as short as this but folks should be aware that purchasing this is risky. A friend shared a bottle of this with me this weekend and it was either a terribly executed oatmeal stout or grosely infected. All sour fruit with carbonic and mineral character.
