Poured a thick two fingers of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is great: roasted malt and chocolate.
The taste follows suit but with a mild bitter bite at the end.
The texture is smooth and soft with moderate carbonation.
It hits all the notes for the style with an added extra bitterness.

Bottle - Deep black pour with a thin filmy brown head. Nose is milky, with chalky medium roast. Chocolate and a touch of coffee. Roasty taste, dry and lightly ashy. Milk chocolate--pretty balanced between sweet and roasty. Medium body and smooth carbonation. Good stuff. Real easy drinking but pretty sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nearly black, foamy cappuccino head. Copious lacing. Nose is reminiscent of Postum, a malt tea my mother used to drink. Notes of chocolate, roasted grain, and coffee. Taste is nicely balanced; quite sweet, but with some complexity. Full body, lively carbonation. Quite good brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Faint aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and some coffee bean. Ebony black in color, little to no head...tan in color. Sweet roasted malt is the first taste. Has an off flavor of wet cardboard. Flavors of dark chocolate, and coffee also blended in. Mouth feel is slick with mildly bittersweet finish. I will revisit again as I purchased from craft your own six pack section...may have been a bad bottle.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 Pours a noisy black (glub, glub, glub noise) leaves the same color body with a decent one finger white foamy head, light adequate lacing; smell is somewhat roasty yet still the oatmeal is there and kinda comes through in a bland sort of way; the taste is better as there’s some bitter underones to it; slightly roasty; fairly easy on the palate; overall decent oatmeal stout but nothing special

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose is roasty with a lot of oatmeal coming off it. Taste is definitely oatmeal-filled, but with a slight bit of sweetness in there. Decent drink.
