look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Love my stouts, especially oatmeal stocks. This poured as close to a jet black stout I normally enjoy. There still was a hint of brown which gave me the warm aroma of coffee and chocolate.

The head was small and dark. The first taste was on the small side with nice much of a big stout taste considering the oatmeal fame. The mouthful and finish were much nicer, so I needed to taste it again.

Each taste afterwards, I found more round and soft flavors coming out. Almost like the oatmeal was finally trying to push through.

Enjoyable beer, in the top of the oatmeal stouts I have had
