look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours with almost no head. Low carbonation, pitch black look in the glass. Pretty regular, nothing to see here.

Smell: A very rounded and balanced aroma. A good combination of oatmeal, chocolate, malt, and hops. The malt and oatmeal jumps out right away. Mildly sweet with a night dark malt backbone. There is a black licorice and caramel aroma on the back end. Bitter dark chocolate pops up all over the place.

Taste: The front is a sweet milk chocolate flavor. The body continues the theme of sweetness with a tasty oatmeal body. Dark chocolate blasts through and is balanced with a oaky charred malt character. Really tasty, everything that an oatmeal stout should be.

Mouthfeel: Very light, with a lot of chocolate and sugary sweetness. The back end is a malty brightness which is memorable.

Overall: Next to a seriously aged Pilgram's Dole, this is my favorite New Holland beer. Balanced and easy drinking, a great representation of the style.
