look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

A: poured from a 20 imp oz bottle into a nonic pint glass, pours a very dark red brown with a huge tan head that lingers leaving excellent lacing, clear

S: chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, slight hops, vanilla, coffee

T: sweet malt profile up front, coffee, vanilla, chocolate, finishes with a pleasant hop bitterness

M: oily and thick with a great mouth coating, lighter carbonation but far from flat

O: this sets the bar for oatmeal stouts, flavors are balanced and not overpowering, low alcohol content keeps it refreshing
