From a large bottle, this is a black brew with a tall chocolate head. The aroma is of coffee and cream, with a background of oatmeal. Creamy, full in body, and balanced. The taste is nutty, with roasted grains and a complex deepness. Substantial. This is a better than expected oatmeal stout.

Pours black with a fingers worth of tan head. Smell is roasty, a little bit of chocolate, and some coffee as well. The flavor follows the nose but with the coffee being more present. The feel is quite what you'd expect from a stout but it doesn't take away from the beer. This is pretty good stout. It's pretty easy to drink as well with the ABV being 7 percent.

Bottle from gregwilsonstl, thanks for the opportunity!
Dark brown/black color with a huge bubbly tan head that attempts to pour itself despite the 35 degrees that the bottle is sitting at. Sweet milk chocolaty malt with bits of creamed coffee and a touch of lactose. Smooth creamy mouthfeel surprisingly the mouthfeel isn't overly bubbly. Tasty sweet stout actually.

Pours the color of coffee, with the head the same color as coffee foam. Smells sweeter than it is, like brown sugar, oats, and fudge.

First thing I taste before I swallow is sweet raisins, wood, and oats. The oats don't hit you hard until you swallow. There is quite a bit of carbonation, but I find that's the case in most oatmeal stouts. The alcohol is well masked, and the bitterness is also damn near perfect. It compliments the beer so well.

My only complaints are that it's quite 'sticky.' I don't know how else to put it. There are certain sweet stout beers that feel sticky and viscous on the glass and that always turns me off a bit. The other thing that keeps this from being a 5 for me is the carbonation. It may be a bit too much, although it doesn't make it less easy to drink. It's a nice, rich, drinkable beer for sure.
