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.
