Poured from a bottle into a snifter glass at around 45°F

Appearance: Poured black with a mahogany tent when put up to the light. One finger tan head

Smell: Roasted malt with a hint of sweet milk chocolate.

Taste: Chocolate is prominent right off with some roasted malts. Toasted oats are balanced in the background throughout

Mouthfeel: Medium body; Smooth and creamy with slight bitterness

Overall: My first oatmeal stout and I am enjoying it. I am more partial to thicker, higher abv. stouts, but this would be a great session beer. Flavorful for around 5% abv. Recommended!

This is my favorite oatmeal stout. Has a beautiful dark mahogany look to it and pours with a a nice two inch tan/cream head. Extremely smooth for a dark beer and very full flavored. Nice roasted malt flavor. The smell isn't as impressive as the taste of the beer but hey taste is what matters in my book. I've had many oatmeal stouts as it's my favorite style of beer and this is by far my favorite. Just got lucky the liquor store got a fresh batch in this week. The downside is if you find it and, since it's not dated, you get an out of date bottle you will loose that nice head and it will have kind of a flat taste. Make sure you buy this from someone whos beer move. :)
