look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Pours very dark, with a nice khaki head. reveals ruby redness when held to a light. Smells good, chocolate, and coffee notes, malty. The mouthfell is alot thinner than i expected, but not bad. Its smooth, slightly creamy. The chocolate notes are on the palate as well as the nose but the coffee notes arent that strong. Its malty. Sweet, but not too sweet. You taste the hops a little. Overall: great brew in my opinion. I give this high praises. For the style, it was great. Wonderful with my meal. I enjoyed this beer

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.

Appearance- Dark brown color with 1/4 inch of light brown head.
Smell- Smells of roasted chocolate and coffee.
Taste- A little hoppy up front but the complex flavors of roasted chocolate and coffee come in to make a smooth finish.
Mouthfeel- Light mouthful for such a dark beer. Very easy to drink
Overall- I haven't had too many beers of this style, but after this one I'm ready to try some more. Great flavor and easy to drink is always a winning combination!
