love marble, every beer i have from them impresses me for different reasons. this oatmeal stout pours as black as any beer ive ever laid eyes on. its jet jet black, inky and thick, but not syrupy at all. theres a solid two inches of light brown foam on top, with fairly solid retention. i smell burnt malt, minerals, tobacco, and literally no sugar at all. its certainly not the nose i expected, but it makes this beer that much more dark and mysterious to me. first seem is holy roast batman! never had such richly toasted malt without the bitterness of burnt grain, impressive feat. the oats provide a little bit of roundness to the flavor and feel, but dont seem to add any sweetness at all, although this beer isnt bitter either, its just balanced perfectly. some light dark chocolate notes in there as well toward the finish. great mouthfeel, soft and creamy feeling. majorly full bodied but this is barely filling. average carbonation for the style. overall another fantastic and interesting brew from marble, who continues to make true to style beers that are a level above what so many others are putting out. this is da bomb!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a fudge brown color with a rocky tan head whose retention and lacing are not unimpressive

Smell: Chalk, chocolate and sweetened oatmeal elements

Taste: Hop-forward, with underpinnings of chocolate; floral, hoppy flavors continue to build through the swallow and into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; lacks the creamy feeling I would expect in an Oatmeal Stout

Overall: Not really what I was expecting, at all; a bit too thin and a bit too hoppy; not a bad beer, just different

Thanks, sunkistxsudafed, for the opportunity

A big light brown head takes its time to settle into a pretty nice lacing above a clear ( I think ) super dark brown to black colored beer.

Super dark roasted malts with the aroma of them being burnt harbor some bakers chocolate, coffee, and oatmeal aspects.

Rich dark roasted malts with unsweetened chocolate, light roasted coffee, and a thickness of oatmeal taste.

A creamy yet lightly dry aftertaste with some of the dark roasted malt characteristics hanging around on this full bodied creamy thick stout.

A very well done oatmeal stout, not to much chocolate or coffee coming through, yet it has that full roasted malt body that makes you want to take another drink and another, etc.

Pours into snifter.

Pours 1/2 finger of tan head that fades down fast. Leaves slight splattered lace. Color is black.

Aroma: Oats, roasted malts, coffee, and a manure flavor. Very odd. Kind of creamy. Some chocolate.

Taste: It is odd because I get the manure again out of this beer. It is very dry and roasted. Has notes of coffee and chocolate. The off flavor really takes away from this beer.

Mouthfeel: Roasted and dry, a bit creamy. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends very dry and roasted, again.

Overall, not the best example of an oatmeal stout. Has an off flavor that I can't get over. Not something I want to drink a lot of.

Mellow, black, and richly flavored. Malt gives a nice sweet tang. Just a hint of the sour charcoal burnt malt in the aftertaste. Shades of roasted barley, a touch of caramel, then the hops. Not too bitter, just enough to leave a glow. Looks exactly like most stouts in the pint glass with an OK dollop of foam.

This is such a well-balanced beer. All the flavors make their appearance and fade away politely. Dry but with a pomegranate fruity hint. Nice rich mouthfull, well carbonated. My favorite regular stout so far this year.

All brown and black up in this, almost a full inch of tan head on it. Retention is almost too good. Takes forever. Plenty of roasted coffee malt notes, nothing fancy, just deep roast.

Taste is a good mix of thick mouthfeel that isn't obtrusive, chills with you, good use of oats, smoothes things all out. Roast is generous. Good amount of hops in this one. Pretty straight forward and prototypical stuff.

A- Dark brown body, not quite black but close. One finger offwhite head, good retention time, a bit of lacing.

S- Milk chocolate, roasted malt, espresso. A bit nutty, even a bit of cocoa. Solid nose.

F- Very drinkable profile of roasted malt, milk chocolate, nuttiness. Not complex but tasty and pleasing without any off-flavours.

M- Medium bodied, silky smooth, good carbonation, super easy to drink.

O- Very easy drinking oatmeal stout with nice body on it. I liked this one a fair amount and would drink it if it were local.
