22oz bottle. Package date is 1/15/16 (a little over a month ago) Listed ABV is 8.1

Pours a solid black body with a huge frothy tan head. Great retention and lots of thick lacing.

Fairly prominent . Chocolate malt dominates but there is also a very slight hop scent

The combination of chocolate malt and bitter hops gives it an overall coffee effect . Slightly boozy with some sweetness. There really is a lot going on here...

Velvety smooth feel

Overall one of the better oatmeal stouts I have had. And the price makes it a great value ($3.96 at WINCO)

For a heavier oatmeal stout, I thought this was spot on all the way around. Great chewy mouthfeel without being viscous or oily, big roasted malt and bitter chocolate with a bit of hop bitterness at the end to really keep you coming back.

Paired wonderfully with a bbq grilled chicken and bacon sandwich and fried pork cutlets with sausage gravy.

The appearance is a dark black color. You cannot really see through it at all. The head was a one finger head it was a chocolate brown color.

First smell that comes is dark chocolate and roasted malts that really smell like coffee. After those smells I get a mild hop bitterness smell.

First taste is a dark malt flavor that really comes in strong, right after that comes in a strong bitterness from the hops.

I think it has a nice silky mouth feel that roles over the tongue nicely.

Overall a really solid dark stout. I dont have any real complaints out of it. I would give it a 4.25. It is a good American Stout.

Pours black. Thin tan head of foam that did not last. Malty clean scent. Fresh with a light touch that gives the impression of coffee and cream. Hop floral in the background. Earthy. Smooth flavor and a light herbal hop. Lots of cocoa on the palate at first but becomes more discreet as you drink. A distinct bitter finish. Higher abv for the style changes the finish only slightly. Mild flavor of oats. Dries out and the 7.5 percent slows the drink down only a little. The extra hops balance this one perfectly. One of the best beers I have had this year.
