Lazy saturday afternoon, feels like an oatmeal stout kinda day.
Pours a mocha colored frothy and semi thick almost 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, nice lacing as it does as well, almost black beer with faint brown light sneaking through the thin parts.
Nose brings sweet brown malts, caramel, little syrupy note, little nutty toffee like notes, some creamy like oatmeal, a touch of brown sugar and faint mocha, and very faint coffee.
Taste starts with darker malts this time, a touch of a roasty black malt, mild dark chocolate and cocoa notes, mocha like more than anything, with some of the caramel and brown sugar notes, a little nutty toffee again, and touch of a biscuity note. A nice creamy oatmeal, little oatmeal dark chocolate effect. Hops kick in on the backend, a little earthy almost spicy like hop note with fair bitterness for the style. Finish is drier but creamy and a little sticky, almost dried lactose but more like dried oats, little more semi sweet chocolate and touch of mocha coffee.
Mouth is med to a bit fuller bod, nice creamy oats, decent carb.
Overall not bad, pretty nice oatmeal stout actually, the nose was a little lacking, but the taste brought some nice darker malts, nice oats with a little dark chocolate or semi sweet, nice kick of hops on the back end, decent finish, a touch syrupy and sweet but not bad. Pretty enjoyable even for a warm summer afternoon.

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
