4.38/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Very sudsy with great lace. Jet black as an oatmeal stout should be.

Smell: Lots of fruit: plums, raisins, etc. Almost bourbon-y with some vanilla.

Taste/Mouthfeel: More fruit initially with bourbon and vanilla in the finish. Excellent balance between fruity sweetness and malty bitterness. Mouthfeel is clean but a tad thin.

Overall: Worthy of the award.

On-tap at Blue Corn Cafe, Santa Fe, NM

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a thin tan head that left thick lacing on the surface and the sides of the glass with a narrow collar around the edge.
S: Light aromas of chocolate malts and coffee are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, but also has notes of roasted malts, which stand out in front of the flavors of chocolate malts and coffee beans.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This oatmeal stout has rich flavors of chocolate malts, coffee, and roasted malts. It just seems that it isn't as smooth compared to other beers in the style.

Serving type: on-tap
