3.68/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Poured extremely dark (almost black), with a thin off white head that dissipated quickly

S - Roast malt, cocoa and chocolate

T - The taste matched the scent very well. Chocolate and dark roast malt dominate the palate with a hint of bitterness upon finish

M - It was much lighter than expected and the coffee flavor lingered in my mouth forever

O - I think it would've been much better had the mouthfeel been a bit heavier and flavor more complex. I would certainly drink it again, but it won't stand out in the line up of great oatmeal stouts I've had

4.28/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. bottle agressively poured into a tulip pint. Dark almost black body with a thick, frothy light brown head. Excellent retention and a ton of thick lacing spread throughout the glass.

Very pleasant aroma. Heavily roasted, almost charcoal tinged malts with chocolate and coffees. Light touch of floral hoppiness, vanilla, and lactose.

Flavor is chocolate dominant, which combines with the oats and lactose to give it almost a chocolate milk like flavor. Discrete hint of nuttiness from the oats. Slight touch of bitter char combined with bitter dark chocolate and a barely detectable hoppy bitterness give it a nice, dry finish.

Medium-full body thanks to the oats. A fairly high carbonation, but it still feels soft, creamy, and velvety.

Overall, this is a wonderful beer. Excellent both stylistically and overall.

4.04/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A nice sized mocha head was formed that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Bready and sweet oats, roasted coffee, earthy, chocolate, smoke,

Taste: Nice oats up front, ash, roasted coffee, earthy, chocolate, and mild bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, light bodied, ashy bitterness, a little chewy, and low carbonation.

Overall: It's hot and humid here in Boston, but this was a god choice in my nice air conditioned room.
