Appearance: clear brown color with some reddish highlights. A one inch head produces a bit of lace.

Smell: roasted malts with hints of chocolate and vanilla.

Taste: roasted malt, prunes, bits of chocolate and coffee, and very soft oat tones. Bitterness is mild.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp at the start but smooth and a bit creamy at the finish.

Drinkability: easy to quaff this stout. Refreshing and hits the spot when in the mood for an oatmeal stout.

Into a pint glass, it poured a mahogany hue with one finger of beige, decent retention, and good lacing. Little visible carbonation. Smelled of roasted malt, coffee, and milk chocolate. Very milk chocolatey in the taste, but dissolving nicely to a roasted flavor midpalate and then a dry roasted coffee finish. On the thick side, but smooth with little to no carbonation. Very pleasant oatmeal stout worthy of a session.
