look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Serving Type: Bottle to pint glass.

Appearance (4.0): Very dark and opaque. Tan head with nice rentntion.

Smell (3.5): Slight coffee?

Taste (4.0): Very smooth and balanced. Perhaps a hint of chocolate and coffee.

Mouthfeel (3.0): Nice and smooth.

Overall (3.5): This is my first Oatmeal Stout in general, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I am having a difficult time determine the difference between this and a straight stout. Overall though, it is a good tasting beer.
