look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
P: Pours a carbonated opaque dark mahogany with a fast fading tan head. Marshy air bubbles are left behind on the glass edge.
S: Aroma is sour dough, smelly sneakers, roasted oatmeal, figs, sugar sprinkled prunes, brown sugar, cumin and salted crackers.
T/M: Bitter prunes, molasses covered oats, burnt brown sugar/caramel and finishes dry with stale coffee and dark chocolate. Carbonation is quite assertive in the medium body.
O: The first time I had this on tap I really enjoyed it and wanted to try but again. It's just as good as the first time. Really great roasty malt with sugar and bitterness to round out a nice oatmeal porter. This is my first oatmeal porter but I'm eager to enjoy more. Cheers!

A: Pours an opaque black with a creamy, thick beige head.
S: Aromas of cream, vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee, and astringent, herbal hops are present on the nose.
T: Notes of fruity, citrusy hops, minerals, coffee, vanilla bean, heavy cream, and dark chocolate fill the mouth. The fade is predictably bitter and roasty, with strong notes of cream, coffee, citrus, and dark chocolate.
M: Medium in body, dry, and a bit chalky. Carbonation is very intense for the style. Surprisingly, only a modest amount of silkiness is imparted by the oats.
O: This is a solid brew, but it really was not what I was expecting. Considering that the name strongly emphasizes the presence of oats, I was somewhat disappointed that I encountered difficulty detecting any distinctive oatmeal presence. Again, this is not a bad brew by any means, but I kind of feel that the oat flavors should have been more pronounced.
