Ok, right out the gate, this isn't an oatmeal stout. But it is made with 100% oats, and that was about the closest style category to choose from for such a beer. Anyways, this was consumed as the first beer of the day at the Strange Brew festival held on May 18, 2018.

Pours golden, good clarity, soft 1/3" white head. Aroma smelled like cocao nibs, they went hard on the chocolate notes on this one even though the appearance might not look like it.

Taste, yeah, super easy to drink, commercial tug job about chocolate milk is pretty spot on. Light body, smooth from the oats. The coconut that is part of the beer offers not much, this one is drowning in chocolate notes, but its not a big ol hefty dose of sugar with it. Its like a low sugar version of chocolate milk/beer. They did a damn good job of packing this much flavor into a session strength beer. Sometimes less is more when you're trying to show off an adjunct or two. Would love to see this packaged, can think of plenty of lady friends who would be into this, including myself.
