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.

I poured this beer at a warm room temperature as I got sidetracked and forgot to place it in the fridge, but I am happy that I did as WOW it is giving off some fine aromas! It poured thick and black with a huge frothy brown head (from the warm temperature) that settled to a one finger cap of creamy goodness and a sticky wall of lacing on the pint glass.

Aromas- Chocolate malt, roasted coffee, vanilla, and maybe what can be described as oatmeal (I dunno, it really does smell like it) and not much in the way of hops.

Tastes like chocoalte malts, roasted malts both sweet and slightly bitter intermingle with a mild sourness, light milky vanilla and very mild piney hops which finish her off.

The body is a little lighter than I would have thought but still fairly full and smooth with an even mix of sweet and sour. Definitely different than I am used to! Intriguing and excellent! There is also a tad bit more carbonation that I would have figured but it works well with the mild sour. There is a little of a slippery feeling on my tongue and a peppery finish. Alcohol is a little apparent and it is slightly dry between sips.

Overall I really like this beer! It's not like any that I have had before and may not be exactly an oatmeal stout in the way that it's pretty hot with carbonation, thinner than most and slightly sour. Personally I give it a solid 4.25 out of 5. I'm not sure that it reflects the style totally for the above reasons but it's damn good! Style wise, 4.0 out of 5. I would recommend this for sure. It's not a crossover beer from the big boy lagers, but excellent!

L- Dark brown, almost black with a thin tan head. The head fades quickly to a cap and leaves some decent lacing on the glass.

S- Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and hints of toffee.

T- Roasted malts dominate at first, coffee and chocolate are a nice counterpoint with out being a distraction. Somewhat bitter hop note makes an appearance at the middle but is quickly displaced but a bit of toffee and caramel sweetness.

M- A little light in body for my taste is an oatmeal stout, low in carbonation but it doesn’t have a creamy feeling that I usually associate with this style. Finish is dry with a final note of semisweet chocolate as it should be.

O- Interesting take on the style, more creaminess and body and this could have been a real winner. The 5.6% ABV makes is a decent session candidate if it gets tweaked a bit.
