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

A- Dark black with an off white head that laced nicely.

S- Not very aromatic. A few hints of chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee.

T- Slightly bitter upfront with a mild coffee and roasted flavor in the middle. This beer finished with a nice lingering hop bitterness.

M- Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. I was expecting it to be a little thicker due to the oatmeal and have lower carbonation.

D- Fairly drinkable.

I would rate this an average stout. I didn't know it was an oatmeal stout until I read the description. It wasn't every thick and was overly carbonated for the style. The flavors were on the mild side and lack character. However, it's not bad at all, just not great.

Black in color. Poured with a thick, light beige foam that reduced to a thick cap that left sheets of sticky lacings on the glass. Dark roasted and charred malt aromas, with earthy cereal grain and dark chocolate notes. Medium bodied and creamy smooth with light, soft carbonation through the middle. The body thinned toward the finish. Dark roasted malt flavor up front immediately followed by bitter, burnt malt and roasted coffee beans. Hop bitterness kicked in from the middle to the end riding over dark roasted malt. Finished with a lingering, bitter charred malt aftertaste.

Pours a deep dark brown with a finger of tan head. Most of the head dissipated but a thin film remained for quite some time. The nose has roasted notes but I am really not getting any coffee notes. The flavor is similar – roast but the coffee is very, very faint. The body is fairly hearty and the finish is mildly bitter.
