Had on-tap at the Tap Room on my latest trip to St. Louis.
Dark brown color with a one-finger tan head. The head dissipated slowly, leaving thin lacing.
Smells of roasted malts, some faint coffee and chocolate, no real hop smell. Taste is similar to the aroma. Light roasted malt flavor, some bitter coffee or bittersweet chocolate come through. More coffee flavor comes out at the end (once it has warmed a bit). Good mouthfeel, but not as thick and rich as I was expecting. Closer to a dry stout in body and finish. Moderate level of carbonation keep it smooth, dry finish. Overall this is OK, but I have had better.
Serving type: on-tap

3.5/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a bottle freshly delivered from the St. Louis brewery by my wife's mother.
Appearance: Tiny to medium sized bubbles pack a one finger high khaki/tan head. Carbonation bubbles quickly rise to the surface. It pours a deep, dark amber, almost black. I cannot see my hand behind the glass. Slight lacing traces its way down the glass as it is consumed.
Smell: Roasted, fresh malt. Slightly sweet hints.
Taste: Roasted malt. Hints of coffee, charcoal. Missing the smooth oatmeal that I expected and remember from previous bottles. Drying hop notes in the finish, more bitter than expected.
Mouthfeel: Small popping carbonation on the tongue. Surprisingly thin, as if something were left out. Like the oatmeal.
Drinkability: This is an average beer, not fantastic. I enjoy it, but feel that it is not a great representation of the style. If you are looking for oatmeal smoothness, it is not here. I could drink a few of these, but if I was looking for an oatmeal stout, I'd have to keep looking.
Serving type: bottle
