look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours very dark brown/black into TEKU glass. Very light tan head with lots of lacing.

Smell is toasted oats, sweet malt, molasses, with a hint of coffee.

Taste follows the smell well. Lots of molasses and toasted oats. A hint of alcohol warmth comes through. Very mild bitterness late.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Low to medium carbonation.

Overall this is a fabulous, complex oatmeal stout. An old favorite. Just now getting around to rating it.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a dark brown with a nice medium tan head and lacing. Looks nice. Malt, smoky malt and light coffee flavors up front, with a malty middle and somewhat sour, dry finish. A bit thinner than most stouts I've been drinking, but respectable for a 5% ABV. A nice stout from a great brewery.
