12 ounce bottle poured into tulip glass

A - obsidian black with a large frothy caramel colored head which ends up becoming a nice retention and ring and lots of foamy lacing.

S - very weak nose that is mostly chocolate

T - Caramel notes dominate up front with a molasses, milk chocolate and toffee sweetness. Mild oatmeal notes are also present. The finish is coffee and charred wood.

M - average carbonation, average thickness, bit of an aftertaste

O - okay beer, but there are better oatmeal stouts.

Appearance- Pours up a good chunk of head which looks to have excellent retention. The head is a medium to dark beige while the body is an opaque, dark chocolate black. Lacing, at this point, is almost all sheeting with slight perforation.

Nose- Smooth and creamy milk chocolate that mixes with rounded notes of roasted malts from the glass. The bottle shows more bittersweet and dark chocolate notes. Some cocoa. Slight hint of cherries and other dark fruits. Nice balance and integration.

Taste- Starts off with a slight sweetness of dark fruits and cherries which quickly moves into rounded notes of slightly bittersweet chocolate and cocoa. Nice bitterness from the roasted malts on the finish. Not terribly complex but this is not a style that expresses much complexity- efficiency and balance is often more than enough for an oatmeal stout. Although the chocolate does start to express itself more deeply with more bitter and dark chocolate notes. Good balance, good integration, and good presence makes it a solid oatmeal stout in my opinion. It won't change how you think about beer but it drinks well enough and it's certainly cheap enough that that doesn't matter. Coffee and roasted malt notes start to come out more as it opens up. Slight nuttiness as well.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with good carbonation but a little more zing than I would like. Nice and smooth with a slight grittiness on the finish. Except for the slight zing, pretty much what you expect from an oatmeal stout.

Drinkability- Pretty easygoing and smooth- exactly what you want out of an oatmeal stout. It's also pretty cheap at around 7 or 8 bucks a six pack. I would definitely buy this again.

Overall- Solid, good beer that doesn't innovate but just keeps it simple. Worth a try. If you like solid oatmeal stouts, you'll like this beer.
