New brewery started showing up around here, figured I'd give it a try.

Pours a light fizzy brown head that fades fairly quickly, super dark molasses brown color very little light getting through.

Nose brings plenty of brown malts, toasty and biscuity, little creamy brown malt note, some caramel, toffee, and quite nutty, hint of cocoa and dried lactose and some oatmeal.

Taste brings more toasty brown malts, quite biscuity and nutty, some caramel and toffee again but not really sweet just a little, into creamy oats again and dried lactose, with a touch of cocoa dust. Some roasty flavors start to come through more as it warms, it actually gets a nice roasty flavor. Faint hop bitterness in the background. Finish is dry and a bit of a dried lactose feel, touch of cocoa and creamy brown malts, more biscuit and toffee notes, and a bit more bitterness with hint of earthy hop note, lingering oatmeal note.

Mouth is med bod, fairly creamy and a decent oatmeal viscous feel, nice carb.

Overall pretty good, nothing too special, a bit on the light side as far as malts go for an oatmeal stout, at least what I'm used to, but still pretty decent beer. That being said, Sam Smith is much better from what I remember of an English Oatmeal Stout.

Bottle to Tulip.

A - Dark brown, almost black pour. Little to none, light brown head. What little head it did have dissipated very quickly. Looks relatively smooth, nothing chewy or viscous about the appearance.

S - Oatmeal. Lots of oatmeal. Light burnt notes. Caramel on the back end.

T - Caramel up front. Following up with oatmeal. Almost overpowering at times. Some burnt, toasted characteristics also.

M - Light carbonation. Decent. On par with what I expected. Thin.

O - It's an okay stout. Could be a okay substitute to missing out on your old stand-by but it's nothing to call home about. Not what I had hoped for in an oatmeal stout.
