look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Family bought me a 6 pack of this as a gift

Appearance: beautiful black motor oil color with a tinge of brown on the bottom

Smell: oats, mollases, toffee, coffee and dark semi sweet chocolate

Taste: caramel malts front end in the back semi sweet chocolate (a chocolate lovers dream)

Mouthfeel: smooth and slippery, a almost water feel but then collides through a sweetooth of nectar really suburb oatmeal stout.

A - Pours almost completely black with a one finger very dark tan fluffy head. Very niceretnention and lacing with this beer as well

S - Aromas of sweet roasted malts, toffee and caramel.

T - Spicier than I invisioned on the front. Very nice. Spiciness is followed by roasted malts with chocolate and coffee. Great tasting Stout

M - A medium body beer with very nice creaminess. Very smooth drinking as well

O - Great outmeal stout. Very drinkable with very nice flavor.

Pours almost a solid black in color with a tan head that laces nicely around the rim. Nice aroma of molasses, caramel and chocolate. Just the right amount of carbonation! Perfect balance of flavor in every mouthful. Too bad I just bought a single one of these as this is one of the BEST Oatmeal Stouts I have had.
