Smooth and well-balanced. Mostly chocolate/coffee flavors up front, with the oatmeal coming in and fading later. Deep, rich brown color, almost opaque.

A: Pours a thick multi-finger head. Color is a very dark, almost black red walnut. Lots of lacing.

S: Malt, chocolate, oats. Very rich, very earthy.

T: Almost no carbonation. Starts off with a slight bitter chocolate, then mellows and sweetens. Finishes dry. Don't really taste the oatmeal. Maybe it contributes to that creaminess.

O: Well made stout, super smooth. It just lacked a little something, maybe not the big smell or flavor I expected.

Pours a deep dark-brown color with a small top of beige head that dissolves quickly. Aroma is of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, vanilla,bread,raisins and toffee. The taste is sweet with a good amount of roasted tones. The flavours has good tones of coffee, chocolate and dark and dried fruits. The finish is roasted with a slight bitterness. Aftertaste is strong and has a great lenght. The flavours are balanced very well and it goes down so easy. Mouthfeel is silky and smooth. Medium carbonation with a medium body. One of the better oatmeal stouts i had. Delicious flavour.
