look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a decent khaki head. Some lacing inside the glass and a thin collar.

Smell - Lots of oatmeal, wow. Coffee. Roasted malt. So roasted it gives a hint of a burnt character.

Taste - That burnt malt is the most prevalent flavor throughout. Never gets overwhelmed. Coffee, but it's brief. Some dark chocolate, which leads to a nutty caramel malt. A hint of grassy hops linger in the back end, along with an intense bitter burnt roasted malt.

Mouthfeel - Extremely roasty, lending a burnt malt bitterness. Medium body.

Overall - This really beats you over the head with the burnt malts. Nothing in balance.

Pouring a cellar temp 12 oz bottle into a snifter. The bottle is about 2 years old.
Beer pours a rich dark malty brown color with some tan creamy head that foams up about 1 cm and is an edge layer very quickly after the pour.
Aroma is roasted malt and coffee bean with a little brown sugar, maybe a little bakers chocolate.
First sip reveals a silky textured beer with very very fine and tingly carbonation.
Flavor is roasted malt and some brown sugar but rolls to a bit of a bitey coffee finish. Very dry on the end of each sip. Does leave a sticky film on my lips.
I dont get any alcohol heat or real hop presence. Very drinkable and I am almost finished with the beer much quicker than I anticipated.

This is a well crafted coffee brew that isnt too much coffee and not enough beer. I will definitely buy this beer again.

I want sure if I was in the mood for this, but I actually had never had this before, so how would I know this was an excellent stout.

Is black, no surprises. There is plenty of lacing. The aroma, coffee and malt. Lots of sweet malt.

The taste is a nice balance of coffee, hops and malt. Very good. The aftertaste is more than just a coffee overdose like some of these. Is very pleasant. Recommended.

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!
