Notes/Commercial Description:
The addition of flaked oats add a “smooth” texture to this big black ale. Lots of chocolate roasty flavors tightened up by an abundance of Pacific Northwest hops.

22oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance: Dark brown with a very nice 2" head that recedes to a cap and leaves excellent lacing.

Smell: Roasted malt with hints of chocolate and coffee.

Taste: Rich taste of creamy mocha, just well executed to style.

Mouthfeel: Strong point for this beer is it's creamy texture. Clean on the palate and smooth.

Overall: Again an excellent example for the style.

First had: on tap at Portsmouth

Poured a solid black color with a small ringlet of tan bubbles for a head. Basic stouty aroma, dark roasty malts, small hints of coffee and cocoa. More of the same in the taste, dark malts, fairly roasty, coffee bitterness, a little earthiness, and a bit of tea-like astringency. Pretty bland and underwhelming overall. Mouthfeel was pretty thin, especially for an oatmeal stout, body was about medium. Not a very good stout, IMO, and I'm pretty sure someone with a homebrew extract kit could make something as good if not better.
