Bottle.

A: Deep, dark brown, 90% opaque, starts with good size light brown forth head, quickly recedes.

S: Awesome. Coffee forward, chocolate, malt, slight bitterness. Reminds of a good dark roast coffee.

T: Good, but somewhat one dimensional. Coffee is prevalent, but the chocolate and any malt is muted to non-existent. Slight hop bitterness at the end. I will say that the taste is really good for a non-imperial stout.

M: Excellent. Carbonation is noticeable but not overdone, creaminess from the oatmeal fills this one out.

O: Excellent non-imperial stout.

Lives just miles away from the source. Bent River Brewery. Best oatmeal coffee stout imo. Can't get enough. Love it

L (4) - This beer is a very dark deep brownish black color. Not a lot of head to speak of, but looks good.
S (4) - Nice burnt/roasty smell. Not much hop presence, not that there should be
T (4.25) - There's definitely the burnt/roasty taste as well. But it is a stout, after all. A bit of coffee, but not too much. Not a lot of bitterness, just a hair. Nice all around flavor.
F (3.5) - About the right level of carb. I'd like a bit more creaminess though. It should be a little smoother
O (4) - I had had this beer in the fridge for a while, and finally got around to drinking it. It was a solid beer, very respectable. Didn't blow me away in any category, but good all around.

Roasted malts are evident. Very watery for an oatmeal stout.
