Got this on a trip to Raleigh,NC. Good flavor, pours a dark brown color.

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a very dark brown color and shows some very nice ruby red highlights when brought into the light. Carbonation bubbles are evident in spite of the dark color. It leaves an attractive 1.5-2 finger head that is tan in color. The head doesn't stay around for too long, and as it dissipates it leaves some nice lacing. Looks wonderful. (4)

S- The smell is predominantly roasted malt, and coming out of this is mostly coffee with a subtle bittersweet chocolate character. Perhaps a hint of raisins and the like, and no hop presence that I cant detect. Certainly intense but not terribly complex. (3.5)

T- Very smooth and easy to drink. Malty and slightly sweet, the oats really add to the smooth quality. The beer finishes with a roasted coffee intensity that can catch you by surprise, along with a hint of bittersweet chocolate and raisins or dates. Just enough hops for a nice and balanced bitterness. (3.85)

M- Not as much body as I was expecting to be honest. For me it was a bit too much carbonation that may have contributed to this. It is very silky thanks to the oats no doubt. (3.25)

O- A very nice and interesting take on the American Porter. This is the only Oatmeal Porter that I have ever seen, and I must say I wish that there were more out there! I can't regularly get this beer which is a damn shame. Very tasty, too much carbonation and not as much body as I would personally like is what kept this from being a truly outstanding beer in my opinion. Nonetheless, definitely would buy again if given the opportunity. (3.7)
