look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A- deep garnet with a rocky beige head. Good head retention and excellent lacing.

S- cherry, fig, malt, raisin. Smells like a Belgian quad. Wonderfully complex.

T- malty, toasty, I pick up on some biscuit malt. There is a very light hop presence leading into a finish of dark cocoa and deeply roasted malt.

M- medium bodied, slightly prickly carbonation. The finish is dry and slightly astringent.

O- Complex, toasty, warming, awesome.
