Serving: Bottle via trade. It pours almost black with a decent light tan head. Weak nose with a light roastiness and a slight burnt note. Sweet on the tongue with a little roast, light cocoa, and mineral notes. Flabby body. Reminds me of extract brews I used to do.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a deep brown, nearly black, color with a one finger head of tan foam. The head fades relatively quickly, leaving a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of chocolate and coffee with some other lighter notes of oat. A little bit of a vanilla smell as well as some notes of a slightly burnt and caramel aroma are there as well, producing a rather pleasant smell overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a smooth and sweet chocolate flavor mixed with a nice oatmeal base. As the taste advances it initially loses a bit of the sweetness with it gaining more coffee and a bit more roast to the middle of the flavor profile. This however changes later on as more oats and some vanilla comes to the tongue, with the coffee fading from the picture. With these transitions that occur toward the end, a very smooth and moderately roasted and sweeter flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on slightly thinner side for an oatmeal stout with a carbonation level that is rather light overall. The light carbonation was spot on for the style, but the thinner body could have used a bit of a boost as it would have nicely accentuated the sweeter chocolate and oatmeal flavors of the brew quite a bit better.
Overall – A very tasty and smooth oatmeal stout. A little on the more sweet chocolate side, but a very fine drinker overall.
