look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours an opaque black with red highlights. Little bubbles coalesce into larger ones which pop and leave little divots in the light brown two-finger head. Leaves rings of lacing as I drink. Aroma is dark roasted malt with chocolate and coffee flavors. Taste is roasted malt bitterness with milk chocolate. It's toasty with some caramel. The edges are nicely rounded by the oats. The biggest disappointment with this beer was the mouthfeel. I expect an oatmeal stout to be thick and chewy, velvety even. This one just wasn't. It was thin and watery. Was a little creamy, but didn't hang around on the palate long. Overall, this was a fairly enjoyable oatmeal stout, but not the first I'd reach for in this style.
