It's a great brew but I have one big issue with it

It's all oatmeal and the result is a very dry aftertaste and feel taht leaves you pining for a glass of water

If you love pure oatmeal stouts, this one was made with great craft and I love it's history and tradition

Personally though I'd like a little cinnamon or cream or some other addition flavors to help give it a better balance.
