Appearance: Very dark and appealing. Head was not very impressive, but that was likely my own fault in the pour. Smell: The nose is enticing. I smell bitterness and some alcohol notes. I can definitely smell the oatmeal as well. So far, not my favorite aspect of this beer, but still very nice. Taste/mouthfeel: Bitter, but combined with the oatmeal flavor the taste is quite pleasant. Very creamy with oats and malt; wonderfully easy to drink. Smooth and enjoyable, but not monumental flavors. From initial taste to aftertaste, it is quite subtle and does not call attention to itself. From someone who loves milk stouts, this is an excellent beer.

A: Persistency of the small tan head lacks. Otherwise, pours a nice dark brown with garnet on the edges.

S: Char smoked toffee, coffee, chocolate and brown sugar notes.

M: Smooth, silky, and creamy. Medium body with a medium high carbonation level.

T: Well-rounded beer, artistically crafted. Remnants of char after a sweet toffee and rolled oat start. Sweet brown malts parlay into a bittersweet chocolate leading to a roasted coffee finish. All flavors combine to create a slight licorice effect with the sweetness covering the medicinal char. I'd be drinking this medicine everyday.

3.54/5  rDev -9.7%

A - Black body, light brown ~1" head. Fades fast.

S - Mostly chocolate and oatmeal

T - Chocolate, oatmeal, with sour/bitter finish.

M - Texture is a little thin.

O - Okay oatmeal stout, but probably wouldn't be something I would drink regularly. Prost!

Pours black like stouts do, pours with small head. After a few minutes, no head whatsoever and no lacing. Nose is actually quote hoppy! That's almost all I smell. I don't smell any chocolate or coffee like I usually do in an oatmeal stout. Well, yeah, some coffee notes for sure. Taste is also hoppier than I expected. Nice milk chocolate taste and creamy mouthfeel.

Pours black with a slight khaki head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, toffee, slight coffee tones, and oats. Flavor follow suit with just a touch of char in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a great oatmeal stout. My favorite style of stout and this beer stands up to the my favorites of the style.
