A: Pours a near pitch black color with a fingers worth of head that quickly fades down to pretty much nothing

S: Roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, and anise come out the most. Some dark fruits in the back

T: Follows the nose. Roast, anise, coffee, and dark chocolate all come out nicely. Roast and coffee mitigate any chocolate sweetness. Dark fruits way in the back come out mostly with the anise, which is decently strong. Finishes with very light sweetness and more roast

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Decently smooth from the oats

O: A nice oatmeal stout with some good depth of flavors. Definitely has quite a bit of anise going on, so if you're not a fan of licorice this one might not work for you. Very nice otherwise

This is a really good oatmeal stout...Rich&creamy, full bodied, the only thing that ruins it is the bitter finish

Quintessential oatmeal stout by my standards. It is soft on the mouth and the flavour is noticeable and, to a degree, peaceful. The brown colour is nice and the smell compliments the flavour very nicely. I highly suggest it.
