A bit thin and not as dark as expected. The pour presents a reddish black color. Not translucent, but you can clearly see the lighter red hues if held to a light. The head is a light brown shade of thick bubbles in various sizes. Creamy looking head with a thick lace.

The scent is what you'd expect...malty with slightly roasted grains. Just a hint of chocolate and coffee.

The taste matches the scent with loads of malt, but caramel malts make an appearance alongside the roasty malts. Coffee and bittersweet chocolate, nothing hop related is present.

It's creamy and smooth initially, then all the bittering agents take over. Full bodied with a mostly dry finish. I was hoping for the creamy feeling to stay throughout, but it's mostly a bitter beer, despite little effect from any hops.

Overall it's a pretty good beer. There's a nice taste and a bit of complexity in the feel. The alcohol makes it somewhat sessionable and being an oatmeal stout, it goes down easily.
