January 2010 bottle

A- Half inch light tan head on top of a dark brown beer. Average head retention and lacing.

S- Chocolate.

T- Oatmeal, cocoa. Hint of smokiness. Slight hop bitterness...well balanced.

M- Adequate carbonation. Medium to medium-thin mouthfeel for the style.

D/O- Middle of the pack oatmeal stout. Nice if you'd like more than one, otherwise skip.

Small capped bottle poured into a snifter.

Pitch black, with very little head despite a vigorous pour, and little retention.
Nice aroma, the expected roasted malts, coffee and bittersweet chocolate.
It has a rather thin body for an oatmeal stout, and a good but rather shallow taste, with the same coffee and chocolate.
Decent, but nothing special.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours opaque black with a very slight head that dissipates to a thin ring.

Smell is smokey burnt dark grain, and chocolate. Hint of coffee and residual oatmeal sweetness.

Taste is similiar to the nose. However, sweetness has a greater impact. Finish is clean with lingering burnt grain and chocolate.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and very smooth.

A decent stout. Flavor is hearty without becoming overpowering. Worth a try.
