3.48/5  rDev -7.9%
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.

Surprised to see this beer only rated around the 80's overall. It's a great beer for any stout and/or coffee lovers, what really caught me off guard is finding a realization that this beer is in fact a oatmeal stout. This beer is great and taste up to its expectations. Great taste and balance of mostly semi-sweet chocolate and coffee with a nice vibe with it's bold 7.5% ABV. Mixture of sweet and bitterness with a spiky but smooth mouth-feel. I recently got a six pack from my local beverage store and it did not disappoint especially the fact of it's moderate cost. Definitely worth every penny, will be buying again soon!

12oz bottle served in a Prairie Teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one.

A - Dark brown body with dense mocha head leaving specks of lacing.

S - Cold coffee, chocolate, raisins, molasses, roasted.charred caramel.

T - Nice cold roasted coffee presence, charred caramel and molasses malts, chocolate covered raisin. A strong core of dark bready malt, creamy and decadent. Finishes with strong malts, raisins, and fading coffee.

M - Full bodied, thick, creamy and viscous body, low carbonation.

Good coffee presence with a stout and creamy body. The raisin/plum plays well and adds a creative layer. Nice creamy texture, this went down very smooth.
