look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance was black with thin tan head.

Smell is roasted coffee and chocolate

Taste is the same as the nose, black coffee, coco, and roasted malts. Pretty straight forward but pretty good.

Mouthfeel to me was a bit thin..very smooth and not really lacking flavor but a little watery.

Overall I enjoyed this on the most part. It's pretty straight forward but that's not always bad. Very easy to drink.

A: Pours a clear but opaque jet black in color with very light amounts of gentle visible carbonation near the surface of the beer and a light amount of very dark amber + cola brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a large patch of very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of freshly ground coffee and roasted + chocolate malts.

T: Light to moderate flavors of roasted malts (including chocolate malts) with some lighter notes of freshly roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Light to moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Slightly less than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: I found this beer to be pretty easy to drink with the fairly low ABV, lighter body, and light flavors. Enjoyable but it would be a little better with a slightly stronger flavor - though the same types of flavors just a little more pronounced or intense.

A: The beer is essentially jet black in color—faint traces of brown are visible near the edges of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a half finger high dense tan head that died down a bit, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of coffee beans and chocolate malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some hints of roasted malts along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. Slight bits of smoothness from the oats are noticeable.
O: This beer is easy to drink, isn't too filling and has some nice flavors. I think it could have stood out a little more if the taste was a little bolder.

Jet black with ruby hues when held to light. Tannish head with descent retention and some lace spots.

Oatmeal aroma along with smoked hickory, charcoal and raisins.

Dark fruits form the foundation with prune and raisin characteristics. Toasty malt. Espresso, tobacco and dark chocolate. Earthy hop bitterness in great balance with the malt. Mildly sweet with plenty of roasted bitterness. Smooth oats descend onto the palate in the finish.

Medium to full bodied. Well carbonated with a grainy texture.

Very good oatmeal stout. Complex, well balanced and highly drinkable..
