Had this on Tap at Mani in Ann Arbor. Pours jet black with creamy head. Smells of light coffee and roasted malt, some hints of chocolate but not sweet. Flavor is full bodied with mostly roasty coffee coming through, big hearty roast. Good thick robust mouthfeel, not too heavy, but surprising for the low ABV. One of my favorite easy to find oatmeal stouts. Really like this one.

Poured from bottle to snifter. Nice deep black pour with a small amount of tan head. Minimal lacing and spotting. Smell is very chocolate forward with hints of dark fruits, figs, coffee and oatmeal. Taste follows the nose closely with a nice blend of dark malts, chocolate, and a decent bitter hop finish. Wish it had a stronger oatmeal taste, but it has a good stout quality and a nice dark fruit finish. Feel is outstanding. Nice silky and creamy, full feel that wakes up the tongue with adequate carbonation. Overall- A very interesting take on the stout, with a hint of oatmeal and nice chocolate quality. Wish it was more complex in it's oatmeal. Comes off as more of a milk stout, but still decent. A pleasant surprise that is easy to drink. Solid effort by New Holland and one I will hit again-
