Definitely get the bittersweet finish. Slight cocoa tastes. Oatmeal comes a bit in the aroma but not so much in the taste. I’ve had more complex oatmeals before but this one is nice but not overly exciting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. A solid oatmeal stout. I definately prefer this oatmeal to others that I have tried - much tastier and more pleasant. Very good all aorund and very balanced - no characteristics that jump out as outstanding though. I may purchase again if in a stout mood again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with a thick deep brown head. Rich roasted malt aroma with some chocolate tones and woody hops in the background. Medium / full body with quite a bit of soft frothy carbonation. Taste has roasted creamy malt, dark chocolate and vanilla. Finish has some spicy woody hops up front with the roasty malt in the background - bit of a reversal of how the taste are distributed in the inital taste. Very enjoyable stout.
