A- Stubby twelve ounce bottle drops a pitch black brew to my tulip. The head is tan and forms with a strange frothy fizzy texture almost like soda. Cap reaches half a finger, quickly dies and lacing is non-existent.

S- Sweet milk chocolate, medium toasted nuts and oxidation are the main components of this aroma. Slight burnt grains, cocoa powder and raisins also come to mind.

T- Rather fruity for me with dark dried varietals like raisin and cherry coming to mind. Along with that comes toffee, charred malts, toasted grains, milk chocolate and cereal grains like of course the oats. Carrying over from the nose is an oxidized feel which also might be a yeast off-flavor; I remember it from my early home-brew.

MF- Medium bodied with a slick oily feel to it while the texture itself is lacking. Somewhat watery with just a bit of frothy consistency. Soda-esque feeling from the medium-high carbonation.

Lacks that great silky and creamy body I find and look for in this style. From there it cascades downward with a heavy dose of fruits and something that feels like yeast off flavors (reminds me of my early homebrewing days). Very underwhelming compared to the great Stouts out there today.

Solid oatmeal stout. Worth a go on a fresh tap.

Little to no carbonation (no head at all), no lacing, mouthfeel very thin. Taste is not as robust as I would like. Very muted...thought I had an off bottle so I opened another one...same exact results. Would not recommend.
