Don't expect a big beer meringue here, I think the oats inhibit that.
The color is black with a hint of toasted chestnut shell around the rim. Beautiful lacing; sheer streaks that slowly fade.
Smells of smokey chocolate caramel and apricots, and apricot kernels.
Great fruity backbone leads to a wall of burnt toast. It's like a quilt made of pieces of burnt toast smeared with jam and oatmeal and blazed with a torch and hosed with raspberry mineral water. Nice art.

12 oz. Bottle
Month Bottled: Oct 4 week 2016

Pours a pretty nice dark brown color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice small creamy light tan head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, roasty, with some chocolate/toffee, nutty, with some slight vanilla. The taste is malty, roasty, chocolate/toffee, nutty, vanilla. Medium body. Overall, a tasty brew.

Blackish color with a tan head. Aroma is largely black and roasted malts with some sweetness and very light hops. The taste is similar, but adds oats and some ripe fruits. Crisp body is fairly dry and light. Good dry/oatmeal stout. I think this beer drinks better on tap and is best on nitro. A very classic stout.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Winter Warlock standard pint glass. Beer was black, with a one-finger, dark brown head. Moderate lacing and light carbonation.

Aroma was chocolate, roasted grains and coffee.

Taste was chocolate, coffee, malt and bitter hops.

Very nice, easy drinking winter seasonal.
