look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: dark molasses like brown with garnet highlights, great clarity, tan thin head

Aroma: roasty but not overwhelmingly so, slight bitterness, a little dark fruitiness like a fruitcake,

Taste: great roasty flavor but also supported by more fruity and a little caramel malt flavor that definitely distinguishes it from stout status. Balanced finish but a little residual sweetness. Great oatmeal addition brings a little fullness to the flavor

Mouthfeel: smooth and a little silky, but not as silky as an oatmeal stout. Crisp finish, full body and medium carbonation

Overall: a great mix of roasty, fruity, and bold flavors that finishes smooth and crisp. A great late fall quaff that can be either sipped or gulped.
