Raisin and chocolate on the nose. Medium body. Not a lot of oatmeal as the name would imply. Pretty smooth with a coffee undertone.

Appearance: An attractive bubble show creates a huge mocha head; excellent retention and quite a bit of squiggly lace

Smell: Chocolate cookie, vanilla and a touch of roast

Taste: Milk chocolate, up front, with a slightly roasty character developing; the sweeter chocolate and lactic cream flavors re-build through the finish though there is a touch of bitter roast in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; creamy feel, too

Overall: Not a bad sweet stout here, at all; one of the better beers I have tasted from this brewery

Thanks, yankeepride, for the opportunity

There is something off in the flavor. Slightly bitter with a watery, chalkie flavor.

Oatmeal downplayed to the point where I have to ask, "why call this an oatmeal stout?"

I enjoyed this beer and would have it again lite for a stout and goes down easy after a long day at work

Smooth and creamy as ever. Not the strongest oatmeal taste, but actually fairly light on the stomach. Definitely preferable for the colder months, but I can see enjoying year round.

This is a solid beer from a solid brewery.
