3.98/5 rDev +11.5%

Poured a very dark opaque chocolate color with a 3F head in stein.
Aroma is quite good-light chocolate, and fruit- cherry(?)
Mouth feel is relatively mild.
Taste/finish: light roasts, malty, some fruit. The taste and finish are similar to a Bock.
Overall- a very easy drinking stout. Enjoyable, especially when one is not in the mood for
an over-the-top stout, high ABV beer.
Serving type: can

On tap at a Western Massachusetts diner on July 28, 2013.
It was a deep dark black pour with a modest beige head and very opaque. The head faded after a moment or two.
I did not pick up much in the way of oatmeal on the nose but I did get a decent dose of coffee malts and subtle sweetness.
The body was around medium with some light astringency.
The taste was also on the slightly sweet side with a moderate lingering dryer finish. Some smoke too. Oatmeal stout? Not sure if it fit the profile I am used to but it did remind me of an Irish Dry Stout.

22oz. Poured into German dimple mug.
A- Deep rich black color, but not opaque. Creamy tight tan head. Nice retention. Good looking stout.
S- Cola, raisins, light roast notes, molasses, and a sweetness that is deep and enveloping. Wonderful malty aroma.
T- Similar to the aroma, this is a sweet stout. Cola, sweet dried fruits, and a mild touch of roast in the finish. Hops are very light and the finish is pleasantly long. There is a creaminess to the way the flavors meld together.
MF- Creamy yet not heavy. Medium-bodied and round. Really great for a non-imperial.
O- This is a sweet oatmeal stout. The sweetness is dominant over and roast tones, which became a bit much for me by the end of the bottle. Still, it's a solid stout and an enjoyable local beer! Looking forward to trying the bourbon barrel version and some of their other beers!
