I haven't been able to find this in my neck of Washington. But I'm from Alaska and was recently visiting some family in Alaska and this was on the tap list. I haven't ever had it and thought I would give it a try. I had this on two occasions both single glass and in a pitcher.

A- Very black, thicker pour and a very thick dark tan head. So far things look great.

S- Great stout smell, roasted grains, dark malts, and full flavors of what you would find in an imperial stout.

T- This tastes great! Super drinkable, you have a very full body with no bitter aftertaste that some stouts bring to the party. This is very tasty and I can't remember all the specifics but this has a nice malt to bitter sweetness. The full body is a nice thing to see over all the other thin almost porter like stout wannabees out there. This is a solid beer all around, I wish I could find this on tap at my local place. I'm going to start requesting this and hopes that people start to carry it.

M- Great full body feel like a stout should be. Almost as thick and chewy as an imperial stout.

O- This is great, probably my new favorite stout for sure. In my week long trip I think I had at least three or four pitchers of the stuff. It was super smooth and easy to drink, too easy to drink. Great brew for sure.

Stout pours a black color with a small but nicely lacing white head. There is a weak smokey and roasted aroma. The taste has a sweet smokey and roasted flavors. The flavors are a bit weak, and the feel is too carbonated. Overall its a pretty good oatmeal stout.

Never had this before so here goes.

Pours a nice solid black color with a brown ring at the edge, 1/2 finger mocha head that didnt last long. Some bubbles remain.

Smell is very inviting with some strong roasty, caramel, sweet and sour notes,oats, chocolate, and dates.

Taste is a short burst of coffee and cocoa notes then right away you get this oatmeal driven flavor that stays on the tongue until a nice bitter bite at the end. Finishes with a smooth taste, no bitter aftertaste.

Feel is medium to low carbonation but with a light feel to it, but just about right for 5.7%

Over all a decent oatmeal stout, I just wish there was just a bit more malt punch to it, It's kind of watery.
