Poured cold into a Libby stout glass. Fresh.
Look = 3.5 Pours a deep brown/black with 1/4th finger of brown head. Fades to brown highlights. Lace is lacking, little to none.
Aroma = 4.0 Roasted, toasted malt, chocolate, grainy oatmeal smell. Some hops too with a hint of alcohol as it warms.
Taste = 4.5 Roasted malt leads the way. Chocolate, coffee and oatmeal notes followed by a mild bitterness from roasted malts and hops. Kind of a cookie taste, sweet and oatmeal. A roasted malt aftertaste lingers.
Feel = 4.5 Medium to full bodied, smooth with high carbonation. Fizzy yet still smooth.
Drinkability = 4.0 Really tasty and smooth, low ABV (5.9%) makes for a pretty drinkable and interesting oatmeal stout.
Overall = 4.175 Very interesting and complex oatmeal stout. Feel and taste lead the way, smooth, sweet but balanced with a nice hop profile. Great balance.

Though I am not typically a fan of stouts, this one was solid. Not as thick as I expected, which was refreshing. Happy I tried it, but it didn't change my mind about stouts.
