Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some roasted malts. Taste is also mild, roasted malts, smoke, hints of oats. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, not bad, but there are much better examples of the style available.

This is exactly what an Oatmeal Stout should be. Very smooth and creamy beer. Not bitter as far as stouts go. Hints of chocolate and oatmeal. Pairs well with food as well.

Pours a clear, deep brown so dark as to appear black, producing slightly more than a finger of mocha, shortlived, foamy head that leaves only a hint of lace. Aroma is dark roasted malt, rich dark chocolate with hints of coffee, molasses, toffee & a faint touch of dark fruit. Taste is roast,dark malts & slight burnt notes, dark semi-sweet chocolate & hints of cola, coffee & oatmeal. The dry finish exhibits a slightly burnt, unsweetened cocoa & low cola like sweetness. Aftertaste is dry, bitter chocolate, roast, a more exaggerated burnt note than in the finish & maybe a faint touch of smoke. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, low-moderate carbonation, creamy but with little peppery bite beginning that midsip and lasting through the finish.
