On tap at Vine Street Pub for Stout Month.

Some literature on the beer:
"This is a Mountain Sun take on Oatmeal Stout. Using nearly 20 percent oats this stout is full bodied without being overly sweet. The Oat Lord has a distinct chocolate flavor with a mild to moderate roast character. Don't be deceived by the rich and creamy body on this beer. At under 5%ABV you can feel free to have another!
Malt: Maris Otter, Crystal 45, Black Barley, Chocolate, Black, Flaked Oats
Hops: Hallertau, Magnum
1.058 OG
4.9% ABV"

A - The beer was served in a pint glass. Pure black with black edges. The head is tan colored with decent retention and lacing.

S - Like so many Oatmeal Stouts there isn't a lot on the nose. Some roasted malt character with chocolate and coffee notes present.

T - Just as the description reads the beer starts with a nice smooth chocolate malt character. The beer opens up in the middle for a mild bitterness along with roasted malt and coffee flavors. The beer finishes with hints of roast on the palette.

M - While the beer is certainly rich I found it over carbonated a bit to the point that is dominated the mouthfeel. I wouldn't call it a creamy beer at all. Strong carbonation really effects this beer.

D - Good.

Overall, I think if the carbonation could be held in check this could be an excellent oatmeal stout. Very easy to put down and terrific flavor. I would buy it again for sure.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Serving type: on-tap

Glad to see this one NOT on nitro. One thing about stout month I'd like to see less of, is the nitro taps. But anyway...

Very dark brown, borders black pour. Small head due to pour, but it's creamy-ish and somewhat dense.
Aromas are weakened. Chocolate, coffee and distant black plum.
This is a very smooth oatmeal stout aside from the carbonation, but that adds a nice perk. The coffee and chocolate could seem too coating, but a quick carbo-palate cleanse is nice to have. Served a bit too cold, but no worries. It warmed nicely, but was drank before optimal temperature was reached. Oops, guess I'll have another.

Had this one on tap last night at Vine Street Pub. Although I initially thought it was Oak Lord, my disappointment lasted only moments. Black, with a decent light tan head. Aromas of burnt coffee, anise, black licorice and roasted malt. Medium bodied, with flavors of anise, black licorice, oats and roasted malt.
