A - Pours pitch black, with a mocha colored head about a half inch high, creamy looking with different sized bubbles. Nice patchy lacing. Very pretty.

S - Warming alcohol, chocolate, roasted malt.

T - Oatmeal, chocolate, and a nice bit of earthy hops. Roasted coffee finish.

M - Creamy, but leaves a lot on the palate.

O - Delicious, and gets better when it warms. A very nice stout.

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

Pours from the bottle as a nice dark coffee/chocolate color. Head is strong and thick.
Odor is somewhat light. Has some roasted coffee notes and maybe chocolate as well.
Taste is nice a solid as an oatmeal stout should be. Some chocolate and coffee are present. Also has high maltyness and little hop bitterness. Feel is pretty smooth and creamy. A nice stout overall.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours from the bottle a solid black color with a rocky tan head that is thick and luscious looking. Lots of sticky lacing. Is this thing an imperial stout or an oatmeal stout?

What a great smell. Sweet, grainy malt, pretty big smoke presence, a peanut/pretzel thing going on too. Smells like a meal.

Very rich malty taste with very little roast until the finish. Very clean tasting. Subtle notes of chocolate, smoke and coffee though.

Very silky feel. Ever so smooth and the carbonation is just pillowy.

New Holland nailed this beer for the style. Drinks so well too. This is probably the best oatmeal stout I've had out of a bottle and maybe only second to one other overall. Great work right here.
