Had this on tap at Itap in St. Louis, MO. Poured black with a thick tan head. Light chocolate and mild coffee with a silky smooth feel. A solid everyday stout. Would definitely drink again.

Pours dark in color with a large fluffy tan head that sticks around for a while.
The aroma is a dry roast nuts light chocolate and black licorice.
The flavor is dry and roasty with a light sweet chocolate flavor. There's a faint cola in the background that stays through the finish.
The mouthfeel is creamy and full with unnoticeable carbonation. Fairly standard for an oatmeal stout.
This is a classic I had to try, but honestly there are better oatmeal stouts. I prefer rover truck from TG and it's cheaper and in a can.
