This beer poured a dark brown with a two-finger tan head. The smell is heavy on oats with some chocolate. The taste is mostly roasted malt with a tiny bit of coffee and chocolate flavors in the finish. The mouthfeel is fairly thick with a fairly small amount of carbonation. This is a tasty little oatmeal porter that is enjoyable if a little one-dimensional.

12 ounce brown bottle, pry off cap, no freshness/bottling info to be had. Pours prey darn near black, dark dark khaki head, that stays at about 1/2 inch. Slow fade to 1/4 inch then...eventually...a super thick, good retention..unexciting bits and blobs of lacing. The nose is somewhat off putting, with some dark grains, a cloying sweetness and then a slight licorice note. Dark malts, some caramel and some mild dark chocolate, but this one is kinda thin, lacking in complexity and with a short finish that exposes the limited depth of flavors. Eh, not my favorite of the the Brown's brews I've had the past few days. The label says "Dependable ales", but really what I found was middle of the road micros..worth a ty but nothing special going on..

Thanks to bwyker for the opportunity to try this one!

A: Pretty rich black... the slightest bit of red hue comes through on the bottom with the help of some light. A surprisingly long life on the head of this. About two and a half finger, creamy and sticky.

S: A mild aroma, considering. Roasted malts on the forefront with some softer chocolate scents.

T: Deep roasted malts and oatmeals (almost verging on slightly burnt). Some nuttiness, and a very slight bitter finish.

M + D: A little on the thin side... I tend to love the rich and creamy feel in oatmeal stouts and this one falls a bit short there. It still manages to have a reasonable feel, though, so not too much love lost. At a modest 5%, it could be a session candidate. Dunno if I'd go about having it that way, but I'd certainly give it another shot. Not too bad at all.

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours what I suppose is technically a very dark brown because of the ruby red highlights coming through the bottom of the glass. Has tan one finger head that does not linger for long and leaves a bit of lacing as it dissipates. Carbonation is evident from some bubbles streaming to the top. Wish the head was a bit creamier but looks pretty nice nonetheless. (3.5)

S- Milk chocolate and dark fruits such as raisins come through. A bit of roasted malt and also a caramel/toffee quality. Perhaps a slight English hop character but it's difficult to tell with the presence of the very nice chocolate and dark fruit notes. Subdued but pleasant. (3.75)

T- The milk chocolate and dark fruit character is most evident to start and they marry quite nicely. The caramel/toffee comes through as the finish begins and the finish brings with it an earthy hop bitterness. The roasted malt is evident pretty much throughout. Not quite as refined as the nose but nice. (3.5)

M- This is where the oats are evident as the mouthfeel has that trademark silkiness associated with the style. It does not finish especially dry and it lingers for a bit, which I find to be very pleasing. I find the level of carbonation to be a little harsh and it intrudes to on the silkiness. (3.4)

O- A decent oatmeal stout that I was happy to pick up as it's brew only a few hours away. I really thought that the nose was great, and if the rest of the beer could rise to that level this would be nearing a must-have. (3.55)
