This is as really good example of a well done oatmeal stout. It's not overly complex, but the mouthfeel is nice and creamy like you expect from the style and there is a good amount of adjunct flavor.

Incredible stout. Deep roasted malt with equally deep bitterness. Every sip is profound.

Poured in a pint glass, color is dark brown head is tan, head presents about 1/2 inch thick.

Smell is simple, clean: nice roasted malt, smooth oatiness, light chocolate.

Taste is better than the aroma with a clean and smooth flavor, nice simple balance of oat, roast, and chocolate.

Mouthfeel is great, crisp ale carbonation with well balanced and lingering flavors.

Overall, a great, easy drinking beer.

Dark with a tan head, not too stiff, had to pour slightly aggressively to get much. Nose pleasant, more raisiny than many stouts of this type. Malts and some hops both obvious. Taste: nice balance and lacking the aggressive bitter hops edge that so many stouts have, but maintaining the actual bitter character that you'd expect. Dark malts, a bit of dark sweetness, of course. Mouthfeel creamy from start to finish, with a bit of afterbite. All together this is exactly what you'd expect from a competently made oatmeal stout, but this one is just more consistent, more balanced, than many of this style. All the parts seem to fit together more tightly.

Brown bottle poured into nonic glass. No date that I could find, but tasted fresh enough.
