3.4/5  rDev -7.1%

Picked this one up at New Beer Distributors in NYC. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into my DFH tulip.

a - Pours a pitch black color with one finger of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks really nice.

s - Smells of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, coffee, bitter chocolate, burnt malts, and toasted malts. Very nice nose; like it a lot.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, cream, coffee, and some sweet dark fruits. A little light and weak; pretty average taste.

m - Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. Body is a little too thin for me, and a little watery.

o - Overall a pretty decent stout. The beer looks great and smells awesome, full of coffee, roasted notes, and chocolate. The taste is okay, though a bit weak, and the body is a little too thin. Not my favorite oatmeal stout or BP beer, but worth checking out.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with some hints of very dark brown and red when held up to the light. The beer has a finger tall creamy dark beige head that reduces but has very good retention properties - leaves about 50% of the original head covering the surface evenly throughout the drinking of the beer. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of roasted malts with oat, chocolate, and very light floral hop notes.

T: Light to moderate flavors of toasted oats and roasted malts. There are additionally some very light notes of chocolate and char.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.

O: Enjoyable and very easy to drink with the lighter body and lower ABV. This beer is pretty close to being sessionable and is a great value beer ($3.99).

Served ina wellington glass.

Appearance: Very dark brown, well let me rephrase that pretty much black with a light head, it rises but drops to nothing before sipping.

Smell: Bland coffee-chocolate scent but real light.

Taste: It isn't crazy impressing but still good, I like the coffee notes and malt finish. Lightly bitter with a chocolate feel that is appetizing

Mouth: Has a slightly peculiar after-taste light to medium carbonation but still crisp.

Overall: I have and you have had better oatmeal stouts, granted for the price it does the job. Not meant to wow, it just enough. Salud!

Pours black with brown at the edges, a foamy 1 finger tan head that faded a little slower than average time, leaving spotty lacing and rings as it went down.

Smells of oats, roasted grains, coffee beans, caramel, light floral hops, brown sugar, wet bread and chocolate or cocoa powder; very wholesome like a cereal, the oats and roasted grains ruled the nose.

Tastes of oats, roasted grains, crackers, coffee beans, caramel, very light licorice, light floral hops, burnt wood or charcoal, wet bread like cardboard, chocolate, cocoa powder, coffee grinds and a little vanilla. The finish is acrid, roasted and has a light bitterness like a coffee stout more than an oatmeal stout, but it’s good none the less.

Mouthfeel is creamy, thin and watery smooth, with very light and almost fizzy carbonation, a chewy medium body and crisp bitter finish that trails off sweet with roasted coffee and grains. The oats and coffee jump out at first and then give way to chocolate malts, and what seems like herbs or light hops that leave it slightly bitter.

Easy drinking for a chewy beer, this was above average and more flavorful than a standard Guinness. Definitely worth trying, the low ABV makes it quite sessionable.

3.9/5  rDev +6.6%

A nice reasonably priced bomber found at just $4.99 for a 22oz bottle. ABV is now clocked in at 5.2%

A - Color is a very nice dark brown, almost pitch black with a full inch of creamy mocha head. Looks nice.

S - Smells of a decent Oatmeal stout not over the top in roast or chocolate malts and just a touch of burnt sweetness.

T - Not bad overall. As it warmed it got more lactic and bitter but the roast shined thoughout the entire experience.

M - ABV was on par for a light boded beer but it had a smooth creamy medium body.

Overall this is a well crafted oatmeal stouts but I like mine a touch sweeter. Exceptional session ability since it went down smooth even when it was room temperature (sipped on it for over an hour).

The stout poured a magnificent dark brown with a fine tan head. The aroma was of toasted malt. The taste is rich toasted malt with a little bit of sweetness in the finish. The feel is medium smooth and dry. A very nice entry smooth and toasty. This is stout you could sip on all night.

Pours a pitch black with a thin brown head into my glass. Robust for the style. Looks very tempting as it is.

Light cream with roasted malt notes. Seems about average in that department.

Ditto for the taste. Roasted malt with just a bit of cream. Acrid. Passable.

Silky smooth but the carbonation kills it for me. Should be turned down a notch.

Not bad but not as good as I was hoping.
