Fun, fizzy, malty, it's oatmeal stout. Says on the can that it's a perfect example of the style - I can mostly agree with that. Heavy on the malt, a hint of hop / smoke (?), some yeast. A very smooth drinking and understated stout. Downright chuggable.

I could see myself housing a few of these on an autumn evening. Doing OK on a summer afternoon, too!

Look - Pours a dark brown, no head to speak of, visible carbonation.
Aroma - Grain, nutty, cocoa powder, metallic.
Taste - Flavors are stretched thin, light roast malt, faint dark fruit, acidic, sweet caramel, metallic aftertaste.
Feel - Thin for a stout, fizzy carbonation, chalky.

Overall - Below average in every way.

This is my personal favorite for stouts. It consistently has a milder texture, thinner and softer mouthfeel than most stouts, almost working toward a cask ale type feel only at a cooler temperature. It could be considered "flat" but it excites my palette with texture and flavor combined.

Pours dark brown, settles in the glass black. The head dissipated to nothing and left no lacing on the glass very quickly.

Smells of oats and malt. Very straightforward and simple aroma.

Taste is of nice roasted oats and malts, mildly pleasant bitter slowly turns into a chocolate flavor for the finish.

Medium bodied, creamy and smooth. Very drinkable.

I wouldn't mind drinking this again at all.
