Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours completely black, with a nice frothy very long lasting head. Aroma is of roasted chocolate, coffee, and molasses. Slight bready aroma. Taste is similar, coffee and chocolate character right up front, oats and bread. Mouthfeel is very thick and creamy. Medium carbonation, and full bodied. Nice toasted malty finish with slight bitterness, overall a very well done stout.

Pitch black appearance with a frothy tan colored head. Rolled oats, wheat bread, dark chocolate, Roasted coffee beans and rich molasses are all apparent and comfortably dominant in the aroma. Soft onset of bittersweet chocolate and molasses with a thick roasted backbone on the first sip. Oatmeal, bready malts and some hints of fermented fruit make their way into the body. Chocolaty, toasty finish. Really great oatmeal stout, highly recommended!

A - Pours a deep transparent brown, almost black, with some golden hues around the edges; thick mocha head with nice retention throughout; good amount of lacing and visible activity of carbonation.

S - Mild hint of oats, roasted malts, and coffee.

T - Sweet, creamy taste upfront with some strong flavors of dark chocolate and coffee about mid-drink; mild taste of oats with a bitter aftertaste.

M - Light, creamy texture; medium-bodied; medium carbonation; dry finish.

O - Not my favorite oatmeal stout, but better than average and worth a drink; would have no problem drinking more of these in the future.
