Drinking this at nearly room temperature after sitting out for two hours in the glass because I poured it before getting dinner ready and forgot about it. Oops.

A: Dark black with a light-to-medium brown head that fades quickly leaving behind no lace or retention. Very...stout.

S: Roasted malt, some hops, lactose, oats, strange chemical smell?

T: Not at off-putting as the nose. Roasted malt, oats, hops are there, a bit of chocolate and coffee. Overall, the flavors that should be in an Oatmeal Stout and enjoyable.

M: Smooth, tasty, on-point for the style. Traditional, well-crafted beer. Although the body can be thin at times and the finish a bit watery.

O: Surprisingly delicious at room temperature. A quality Oatmeal Stout.
