A: Pitch black pour with a solid milk chocolate head. Great lacing and retention.

S: Tons of roasted malt with nice creaminess from the oatmeal as well. Little bit of chocolate and coffee.

T: Creamy roasted malt like a proper oatmeal stout. Not much else, just the slightest touch of bitter coffee and dark chocolate perhaps. Hard to tell, it's hiding behind the nice roast.

M: A touch watery (it is only 5.2%) but otherwise smooth and creamy.

O: Very nice oatmeal stout. Maybe just a step behind Mayflower, Ipswich or Samuel Smith but not far. Simple and smooth.

Obtained locally. No freshness date. Poured from 12 oz bottle into a snifter.

A - Pours a dark brown to black with reddish highlights. Minimal head and lacing retention.

S - Roasted malts and a chocolate aroma. Perhaps some oakiness.

T - Same as the aroma with a hint of vanilla. Not overly complex, but a nice flavor.

M - Smooth with a light carbonation.

A nice stout. Not too complex but very enjoyable.
