4.03/5 rDev -1.9%
Pours dark dark brown very little light passing through with about 1/4 inch of tan head.
Smells like sweet oats mixed with chocolate and vanilla. Slight hint of alcohol appears after several sniffs. Caramel, cereal,
Slight alcoholic burn leads well into vanilla and dark chocolate.
Nice spice to the mouthfeel. Heavy and slightly creamy. Good level of carbonation.
Overall very tasty stout.

Pours a pitch black with a thick layer of brown head that has great retention. There's a very light aroma; roasted malts, faint chocolate, and mild hop character. The taste is chocolaty and roasty with a very smooth, rich full body. There is also a smooth, citrusy hop bitterness. This is full boded and well carbonated.
It's well balanced, delicious, and very drinkable.

A: Dark, thick, slightly syrupy appearing with a half inch thick, dense head. IMO, appears as a good oatmeal stout should.
S: Chocolately malt, with a slight hint of coffee. Not a strong smell overall, though.
T: This is one of the best oatmeal stouts I've ever had the pleasure of tasting! Rich, slightly sweet, well balanced chocolate/malt/coffee. There may be just a hint of dark fruit in there as well, although it really only became apparent as the beer warmed to room temp.
M: Thick, just a bit on the syrupy side, but not a negative as far as I'm concerned. Chewy might be the right word. Right amount of carbonation.
O: I'm a huge fan of stouts, and this tops my list. I would be hard pressed to come up with another brew that would top this one. It is well balanced is most every respect. If you come across it, I highly recommend picking up a bottle!
