From Decervecitas. In Ikea's pint glass. Playing Avernum 3. No foam. Not bad, but has some acidness and veggie notes that dont seem right. Bought on Feb 2017. Probably became too old. Has no bbf date

Looks pitch black no light and no ruby notes around the edges, just black. Finger and a half of thick light brown head sinking into the beer to create some more drinkable yummy.

Smells like stone fruits, figs and cherries, stirred into a cup of coffee.

Taste is just like the nose. Really picking up some dried cherries and that background of roasted coffee.

Mouth feel is medium with a slick wet finish.

Overall a very nice stout. The oatmeal does not add any real sweetness just more of a thickness to the mouthfeel. The roasting on the malts seems to bring out a nice coffee note and there is that stone fruit component that comes out in a lot of stouts. Really tastes and feels like a much bigger beer than the 5.8% ABV. So if you want a bigger stout but don't want that 8% and up ABV this would be really nice still a good somewhat thicker sipper that would be great on a cool evening on the patio. Enjoy!
