A: Poured black with low carbonation leaving som tannish bubbles but not to much of a head or lacing

S: Smells of flaked oats, light chocolate and faint hints of coffee

T: Starts off with faked oat an coffee which transitions int som milk chocolate, light coffee. The finish is sordov astringent, sme bitternss, rather clean

M: Medium to big body, hearty but I felt it was undercarbonated, somewhat creamy

O: Pretty average. The booze is maskd very well. i would have never guessedthis beer was 9% ABV

12oz bottle thanks to SSW117. Poured into Founders snifter.

A- Pours an opaque dark black with a mocha brown head that quickly dissipates to leave a flat top and a thin line of mocha along the edges of the glass. Some small carbonation bubbles rising along of the side the glass, hard to see further since the beer is opaque but I'd say about average carbonation for a stout. Some spotty lacing.

S- Oatmeal, some light dark chocolate, some malts, and some very light licorice. About average aroma strength, but smells very nice.

T- Oatmeal, some light caramel malts and hint of butterscotch, finishes slightly bitter with a tiny bit of hops and some light dark chocolate. The light bitterness and chocolate lingers on the palate for a little bit.

M- Medium bodied, slightly creamy, nice carbonation, goes down easily.

O- This was a nice oatmeal stout. Nice flavor, decent mouthfeel, a fairly nice aroma. I definitely enjoyed drinking this however I wouldn't say it's the best oatmeal stout I've had. Definitely glad I got to try it, thanks again Sam! Thanks a lot for sending this, definitely appreciated!

A - opaque dark chocolate/black color with a very thin brown head that does not linger and does not lace

S - strong roasted notes and chocolate malt... Some hints of British hops... Very aromatic

T - the roasted and chocolate malt favors are right up front, finishes with a clean light hop flavor and bitter cocoa at the very end... Flavors enhance and sweetness increases as the beer warms

M - the biggest detractor of this beer... A bit overcarbed and stings the tongue... Swirl it up a little bit to balance it out

O - solid oatmeal stout... Cut down on the carbonation a bit by swirling it for a few seconds and you have a winner
