3.5/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

much thanks to Raider for this one.

Appearance
This beer poured an opaque black with a nice tan coloured head. Once the haed receeded scant then no lacings remained.

Aroma
Creamy coffee and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies came to mind while sniffing this one. A floral funk became more apparent as the stout warmed even more (was in the fridge for maybe 15min before serving).

Taste
Dark roasted, almost burnt coffee, cream, dark chocolate and oats were the most noticable flavours. A mild yet pronounced hoppy finish. A very slight metalic taste, especially when returned to after a slight break.

Mouthfeel
OK balance and blend in flavours, prefer a bolder yet smoother blend . Is a touch on the thin side as far as the style goes.

Drinkability
Fairly drinkable, might go down a little better in the depths of winter as opposed to a cool summers eve. Still havent had an american oatmeal stout that made me forget samuel smith's version.

Pours dark brown with no light passage. Thin rim of tan head. Nose features some sweet notes reminiscent of grape soda with notes of carob underneath. The taste is relatively thin with more grape soda paired with mild roast, moderate chocolate, and a roasty finish. No hop bitterness to speak of here, somewhat sweet overall. Mouthfeel is light for style with mellow carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty lackluster example of the style. Would not return to this one.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing opaque black in the glass, with a thin patchy brown head leaving light lacing. Nice aroma of chocolate, vanilla and mild dark toasted malt. Flavor is dark toasted malt, light vanilla and chocolate, hints of char, smooth. Medium body with mild creaminess. The oatmeal body in this stout is not heavy, but noticeable, adding a smooth creaminess to the feel and taste. Nicely melded stout flavors. Flavor drops off a bit in the finish. Somewhat subdued, but tasty.

4.11/5  rDev +14.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance:
Pitch black body crowned with a light brown, thick, and porous head. Plenty of carbonation racing to the top while sediment slowly drifts towards the bottom.

Aroma:
To my surprise, it smells of fresh oatmeal! Nice roasted coffee notes and trace vanilla will keep you interested

Taste:
A pleasant amount of vanilla hits the taste buds first, followed by bitter chocolate and coffee flavors. Definitely got better as it warmed closer to room temperature.

Mouthfeel:
This is one velvety smooth oatmeal stout! Medium bodied and light on carbonation. Finish is a tad on the dry side with a very subtle peat character.

Overall:
This is possibly the best oatmeal stout I've had to date. Complex and easy to drink - the combination makes for one hell of a beer!
