A - Opaque cola color with a healthy, creamy, smooth, meringue-like, light cafe white color. Great retention leaving a nice lacing.
S - Plenty of nice roasted coffee and milk chocolate. Mocha and malt chocolate aromas along with a touch of nuttiness. Faint sweetness along with the earthiness. Nice aroma.
T - Starts with some milk chocolate and earthy/nutty flavors. Gives way to some roasted coffee and some dark chocolate. Slight creamy and caramel sweetness. Roasted flavor lasts throughout giving way to a slight astringent flavor on the finish. Some bitter roasted flavors on the finish with an underlying sweetness.
M - Medium to light body. Average, maybe slightly less than average, carbonation. Not quite as smooth and creamy as other oatmeal stouts but it does have these characteristics.
D - Nice mix of bitter/roasted flavors and sweetness. Easy to drink sweeter stout. Good balance and the beer just disappeared from the glass.
Notes: Nice oatmeal stout. It lacks a bit of the classical body you expect and the flavor falls a bit short of the aroma, but it's a nice balanced Oatmeal Stout that's easy to drink. Enjoyable but not amazing.
