look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Cola black body, cream colored head, good foamy lines of lacing.

Aroma: Somewhat subdued with notions of dark roasted malts, oats, and dark chocolate.

Taste: A nice sweetness coats over the roasted notes in this, bringing out more of a milk stout kind of feel. Bitter chocolate notes in the finish, and an overall hearty oatmeal flake presence throughout.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat thin.

Overall: An oatmeal stout I could buy again.

Pours a deep brown with a dark beige head. A lingering head that dense and thick leaving lacing in it's wake.

The aroma had a rich roasted barley smell with hints of chocolate at the end.

Drinks smooth and velvetty with a rich roasted malt taste. There's hints of chocolate and coffee too. A nice drinking beer.
