A- Poured into a fresh pint glass down the middle with a pitch black body. Even with the somewhat aggressive pour the head only forms to about one finger. Light mocha foam falls to a small creamy ring after decent retention. Nice webs of lace around the glass.
S- Rich and roasty malts with a strong milk chocolate, cocoa note to it. Mostly dark malts here with hints of coffee, toasted nuttiness, caramel and sweets.
T- Follows the aroma up with a pretty dark roast grain forward flavor profile. Bold with notes of cocoa powder, burnt malt, coffee beans, toffee, toasted nuts and caramel. Some dark fruit hints make up the major difference between here and the aroma.
MF- Moderately thick body with a creamy texture overall. Carbonation is on the higher side and not quite as smooth as other Oatmeal Stouts I have sampled. Fair amount of roast bitterness on the palate in the finish.
Solid Oatmeal Stout with an emphasis on dark roast malts. Nice cocoa flavor throughout the experience. Flavor seems to thin out just a bit after some time but still nothing wrong here at all.

Poured into a standard pint. The liquid looks fantastic and the head is a nice dark tan color, but the size of the head is too much. Smell is a nice roasted scent. Nothing overwhelming. Perhaps a little burnt coffee in there as well. It's definitely a good smell.
Taste is a bit better than standard. Lots of roasted malts and toffee. As the beer warms and gets towards the end of the glass, the toffee disappears and turns into a slight chocolate malt flavor, though the roasted malts stay dominant.
Mouthfeel takes a hit because of the extra carbonation. Though it's not overwhelming, it's a little too much. It also takes a hit because while it looks thick, it feels a bit thinner than it should be. This is one very drinkable stout. I would definitely recommend this one to anyone looking for a good stout and could easily spend the night drinking these.
