A solid black-brown colored brew with a modest light brown film on top and very nice lacing. The aroma is full of earthy toasted licorice malt. Nice. The flavor jumps out with more fire pit, woodsy malt and mild bubblegum sweetness. There are some subtle peat nuances but the bubblegum flavor evolves into floral hops over mellow charcoal malt and a little apple/pear. This stout is a medium bodied brew, maybe medium-light with very modest carbonation. The texture is mildly dry/resinous and it goes down very easily. A stout I could see wanting at a picnic or for the football game with solid, unique flavor. Very enjoyable.

For anyone curious this is the non-imperial version of Ten Fidy brewed with a Belgian yeast strain.

A: Inky black with no light penetration. Minimal lacing.

S: Burnt coffee, toffee, roasty malts, but the biggest thing that comes through here is actually the Belgian yeastiness.

T: Huge yeast flavors surrounded by coffee and chocolate tones. Pretty good.

M: Way lighter than Ten Fidy with low carbonation. Honestly, this one is way more drinkable in the summer than Ten Fidy.

O: Pretty good stuff, like the summer version of Ten Fidy. At $5.99 a growler I can't complain.

A-Pours very dark. Chocolate colored head dies down to nearly nothing. No light penetration. Looks bigger than a 5.2%er.

S-Smells pretty neat. Blatantly an Oatmeal Stout, but the Belgian Yeast really stands out. Coffee and chocolate and oats along with some zesty yeast.

T-Just like the nose. A solid Oatmeal Stout with a nice infusion of Belgian Yeast. Quite enjoyable.

M-Lighter body for a Stout. Sessionable. Smooth and not overly carbonated.

O/D-Pretty cool. I didn't love it but one glass was a good time. The yeast really stands out and adds a new dimension.

A: Poured black with a nice brown head.

S: Nice, rich and sweet. I would need to try again to be able to be more descriptive here.

T: The belgian yeast adds something very unique for the style, at least based on my experiences, and it hits you at the opening of the sip. I am having a hard timed describing the taste but the closest I could come up with is a pumpernickel like flavor as breaking the flavor down I'd say it had characteristics of bread, chocolate, and maybe some coffee. The slightest amount of hops seem to bridge things as the beer closes out with a great, rich oaty finish with a a slight touch of vanilla.

M: Some mild carbonation on a a medium body and a nice and creamy mouthfeel.

O: A very nice take on an Oatmeal Stout and I'd love to see Oskar Blues start canning this one. I'd be a very loyal customer if they did. The belgian yeast component added a new approach to the Oatmeal Stout for me and I definitely liked it a lot. I still prefer the traditional yeast to the belgian, overall, but its always nice to have variety, especially when the variations to a theme are as good as this one is.
