Style: Oatmeal Stout

Notes / Commercial Description:
It's a bold, smooth-bodied concoction that oozes dark-roasted coffee aromas and flavors of espresso and semi-sweet chocolate. We round out these heady pleasures with a dose of flaked oatmeal for a creamy body and a semi-dry finish. Unforgettable.

The appearance might have been the highlight, though there's nothing really wrong with this stout. It just has lots of competition these days. On pouring the dark cream head stood up tall and proud and lacy remnants remained on the side of the glass even when the beer was finished. The carbonation never quit, with lots of small bubbles visible when I held the dark brown (but not muddy) liquid up to the light. The nose was straightforward, not remarkable, nothing unexpected, a bit hoppy, which was an accurate predictor of taste. The taste was likewise mild at first, with hops emerging. It was long developing, if never highly complex. The beer was a bit too cool when I first poured it, and once it warmed to the correct temperature the taste was better balanced and the mouthfeel a bit creamy with a hoppy dry finish.

Poured a 12 oz bottle into a regular pint glass.

A - Nice tan foam. Beer is a very dark brown. Leaves lacing.

S - smells are pretty faint. Bready, roast, and toffee and coffee aromas, but they are very quiet.

T - Very little bitterness, but is very heavy on carbonation. Has normal stout flavors of coffee, chocolate, and charred malts but they are more reserved than in other stouts. No oatmeal taste at all.

M - Heavily carbonated it’s one of the first things I noticed, you can feel the bubbles on your tongue and it sticks around the whole time. Has a watery finish. A heavy beer, but it doesn't feel full in your mouth.

O - Over carbonated to the point that it was distracting. It doesn't taste like oatmeal at all. Has flavors of a normal stout but they are more reserved. Not crazy about this one.

Pours dark but not over done. This one doesnt over do the dark chocolates and thickness. Still nice hops in this, well balanced beer. A little Under rated I feel. Well made brew.
