I was excited to try this beer after seeing the GABF medals — those really mean something. But I cracked open my bomber and the beer (best by Nov) and it's oxidized. There's a lovely, smooth cocoa flavor behind the sweaty cardboard. It finishes on the sweet side, but isn't too thick. It's probably lovely when not spoiled, but it is. Alas, this one's headed for the drain.

Pours a cola color with a tight tan head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of coffee and roasted notes.

Tastes of the roasted notes with a slight sweetness. Coffee and cocoa notes lead off with a slightly burnt overtone. Slight roasted and earthy bitterness comes through. Mild brown sugar sweetness comes through along with some of the oatmeal. I also pick up dark fruit notes as it warms which complements some of the sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium-full with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a good oatmeal stout, but is not quite cost efficient ($9 a bomber).

a: first pour indicates this is wayyyyy over carbonated. the more i leave it sit, the more foam comes slowly gushing out. after a few minutes of the bottle settling down and the head reducing to a controllable amount: its a liquidy light black color. still large 4 finger off white head thats pretty fizzy, but at the same time pretty solid

s: smell is a little hard to pick up through the head, but its a nice blend of roasted malts, dark chocolate, toffee, caramel, prunes, raisins, a hint of cocoa powder and coffee beans. there is some lactose creaminess in here as well

t: given the carbonation issue i'm having a hard time telling if this is how its supposed to taste. i'm picking up huge amounts of vanilla and milk chocolate. roasted malts, slight black licorice, molasses & brown sugar, with a big kick of malt sweetness on the end with some cola-like flavors

m: overcarbonated. feels really light in the mouth - too light for a stout, thats due to the carbonation levels

o: welp, honestly the flavor is alright. i can the flavors here are good, and from what i can pick up it blended nicely - and im really digging the amount of vanilla in here, its a nice treat. my issue is the carbonation level - way too high. it was a slow gusher for sure. probably just a bad bottle, but its all i got. gotta take some points off for that
