AROMA: Oats, Beer.
LOOK: Dark black Color, little head.
TASTE: Initial Sour taste, softened through the glass (poured from a bottle). Late coffee and oatmeal flavor.Light carbonation.
FEEL: Thinnish for a stout.Took a while to get into this, but I liked it in the end.
Was initially thinking this beer would score under a 2.0, but it rallied to be about average.

Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head and a creamy tan lace that retains well. A good looking brew.
Moderate aromas of coffee, milk chocolate, and oats.
Smooth on the tongue. Milky sweet and coffee bitterness create a good balance. Some burnt roasted malts and some bitterness in the finish. Overall I like it, my only complaint being that the body is a bit thin and the carbonation a touch flat.

12 oz bottle from Kif poured into 6oz sampler glasses.

Medium-dark brown with ruby highlights. Minimal head so can't comment on the color though it appears a bit tan. No lacing to speak of.

Smells somewhat sweet although nothing predominates to my sense. No hop to speak of.

Delicious coffee/toffee/crystal blend, smooth and easy tasting. Sweet aftertaste lingers on the tongue. Very pleasant.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin for an oatmeal stout, but it certainly activates the right taste buds.

A solid session stout. Would like to try this on draught. Nitro would probably jazz up the aroma and mouthfeel but for a bottled beer this is very tasty all things considered.
