Solid appearance with black color and over and ounce of head that looks light brown. Cool aroma, was unique, wasn't all roast, had somethin' else going on there that gave it a lively red fruit edge to it.

Just solid taste, mix of roast and smoothness from the oats in the mouthfeel. From bitterness rounded out to a smooth mouthfeel and the dark fruit angle, it has a great mouthfeel and development as it warms.

Good reliable beer.

12 oz bottle. Dark brown with two finger head, fades with spots of lace. Roasty aroma and taste, mild vanilla sweetness, very mild smoke. Mouthfeel is thin but creamy. Solid oatmeal stout, enjoyed it.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a pitch black color with a thick and creamy khaki colored head that retains long after the pour, leaving some small patches of lace behind

S- dark roasted malt gives aromas of chocolate, charred popcorn & caramel. Sweet oats gives it a bit of a creamy aroma

T- dark and toasty up front with some notes of charred malt, chocolate, dark fruit, and some smoky and earthy notes. Mor char on the linger

M- medium body with moderate-low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a lighter creamy finish

O- with all of the barrel aging and added adjuncts to stouts these days, sometimes it's nice to just drink a straight up oatmeal stout
