Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Pours dark black with some tan/off white foam. Nose is strong oat. Chocolate malt too. Present, but not potent. Taste is a smooth sweet chocolate malt, oat finish. Very subdued hop. Milky but not lactose-y. Very light and balanced. Good flavor, good stout.

Thanks to JC for sharing this enjoyed the bottle in a pint glass chilled.

The color is black, opaque with a good 2 inches of light beige with compact bead and good retention. The smell is like fig with fruit and sweet aromas like a fig newton with mild sweet oatmeal cookie scent. The feel is full with moderate creaminess from the oats with a sweet malt middle and semi-low carbonation with roasty finish.

The flavor has a good malt presence with some caramel and moderately sweet cocoa tinges with light dried fruit taste and very low bitterness with some light roast flavor and very gentle yeast in the finish adding to the sweetness and grain of the oats. Overall I enjoyed this but it is pretty subdued and I would probably prefer a bolder oatmeal stout to be honest. It has a nice drinkability for the strength, though.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a tulip pint.

A- Pours black with some mahogany showing through when held up to light. Fluffy tan 1-finger head. Leaves spotty lacing.

S- Oats stand out the most, roasted malt, and some light coffee. Chocolate really isn't that evident.

T- Very toasty and sweet. Chocolate still doesn't jump out on the the tongue, but it does make more a presence in taste than smell. Roasted oats and malt are the main factors in play, but the finish is fairly sweet due to the chocolate.

M- Low carbonation with a medium-low body. It is pretty light for a stout. Very easy to have more than one or two of these.

O- This is not a bad beer. I enjoyed the roasty, smokiness of it, but I feel the chocolate was lacking. Typically I enjoy the roast flavors over the sweeter one, but I feel like when you advertise a beer as being a chocolate oatmeal stout there should be a strong chocolate presence. Either way this is an enjoyable stout, seems like a great introduction to the style.
