I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Black with a finger and a half worth of dark tan head. Light amounts of sticky lacing.

Smell- Light aroma of roasted malt, oats, and some floral hops.

Taste- Dark roasted malt flavors with notes of chocolate, some char, and a very light hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Full bodied, smooth, and creamy. Low amount of carbonation.

Overall- A decent oatmeal stout but nothing special. I have had several that I would prefer over this.

Pure dark brown/black with a very coarse tan head, sea foam like.Head does not last very long at all. Smell is quite roasted and coffee like. Taste is dry and a little bitter. No real sweetness to speak of. Grain notes picked up. Coffee ground flavors. Body is smooth with light carbonation. Pretty decent stout with a dry bitterness.

A- pours a dark black with a small dark tan head that reduces to only a ring leaving just a touch of lace.

S-smoky and woodsy with notes of dark chocolate, earthy and oaty

T- slightly roasted malts with a smoothness from the oats, a bit earthy with just a touch of coffee, dark chocolate finish with a long chocolaty linger and dry finish

M- medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel turns into a creamy and silky finish

O- solid oatmeal stout, slightly roasted notes match well with the smoothness provided by the oatmeal, nice chocolaty linger
