I picked this beer up in a natural food store. This oatmeal stout was a rich dark brown color in the clear, former jelly jar that was my mug for the evening. There was a short lived light coffee colored head. There was just a little lace. It was aromatic with elements of hop bouquet, toasted chocolate, and roasted coffee. Now, on to the taste. The overall taste was smooth with a bit going on - toasted chocolate, coffee, and traces of caramel. There was some hop bite and some nice flavoring hops that balanced out the malt.The finish was dry, and bitter-sweet. While I found this stout to be good it was just a bit too mellow for me.The word mellow is circled in my original notes. I think I was expecting it to be more hopped for a sharper edge. But, that's just my tastes.
