22-oz bomber to tulip. Traded for in Seattle at the end of May 2013. Consumed 8-16-2013.

Oily appearance in the first ounces of the pour. Opaque body except at the edge, which is dark brown / ruby. 1-finger tan head dissipates completely, lacing patchy. Tons of rising carbonation.

Very strong roasted barley malts, oats, lactose sugar, light notes of grass / hay.

The roasted malts impart an acrid bitterness immediately out of the bottle, but this eases with each sip. The higher alcohol content is noticeable. There's chocolate later, with citrusy bitterness in the aftertaste. There's nohing extraordinary going on. This is a typical stout, wth medium carbonation and medium creamy body from the addition of the oats. For this abv, I prefer the taste of Ipswich much more, but this is definitely serviceable. A good example of the style, hence the generous rankings in taste and mouthfeel.

bomber into a snifter @ room temp.

pours a dark black with an inch+ thick beige head. Smell is BIG on roasted, charred malts. The taste is very subdued and pleasant. Youd imagine this is a huge stout based on the nose but that isnt the case. The oats did a great job to smooth this one out and make it exceptionally creamy, tasty and easy to drink. The flavors arent too complex, good and standard for the style with not a lot of hop character, but the smoothness of this brew really make it stand out above the rest. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Exceptional drinkability.

Overall quite impressed by this one. Price point was cheap so i didnt know what to expect but after having it ill definitely be having it again. This is a top of the line oatmeal stout.
