The beer looks silky smooth and dark with a nice head that is retained through the session.

This beer smells extremely hoppy for an oatmeal stout. The smell of malt is mostly masked by the hops.

The taste is hoppy as well, not expected in this style and it actually doesn't work so well.

Its hard to pick up the quality of the malt and expected easy drinking oat goodness as the hops prevent the true quality of this beer from coming through.

I am not able to get past the fact that this beer is way over hopped for the style. As I stated above, I can see there is a a good beer in here, brewed with quality ingredients, but the hops are hiding most of what I am looking for.

Black color with a beige thick head with good retention.
Aroma of toasted grains and citric hops.
Flavor of roasted malts, chocolate and a good deal of hops. Notes of caramel and pine. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a long lasting residual roastness.
Very smooth body with a mild carbonation.
Very good stout, nice tweak on the hop addition.
