4.13/5  rDev +5.4%

Beautiful pour: strong, fluffy, creamy tan head, with very good retention and lovely, wide lacing. Brew itself comes out brown, congealing into a dark, dark brown - almost ebony - presentation in the glass.

Roasted barley, cream, overripe fruit, and yes, oatmeal; all present in varying amounts in the nose. A little alcohol presence, as well, alongside some cocoa and coffee.

Very roasty flavor up front, featuring lots and lots of roasted barley (which keeps coming back for more!), coffee, and a hint of chocolate. Cream and overripe dark fruit try to make themselves known on the mid-palate, before being overwhelmed by roasted barley. Delicious!

Thick, creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Some sting; very lively. No hint of alcohol. Nicely balanced with an earthy bitterness.

Among the best oatmeal stouts I've had. Lots of roasted barley; creamy, smooth body; not exactly complex, but not one-note, either. Great beer. Compares favorably with Founders Oatmeal Stout.
