Great deep brown pour, brown head. Creamy and delicious! The oats give this tremendous body, good lactose sweetness, milk chocolate, toasted nuts.

Pours a pitch black color with a thin brown head, no lacing and light carbonation. Nose of roasted barley, oatmeal, chocolate, malts and some mild hops. Flavor has a sweeter malty chocolate & oatmeal taste with some caramel-toffee maltiness and mild hoppiness. Body is moderate but with some thickness and the carbonation is fairly mild. Pretty creamy and tasty!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Deep brown/black body. Frothy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate. Hint of coffee and floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/slick texture, lively carbonation. Rich and nicely balanced. It expertly avoids the saccharin sweetness of lesser made sweet stouts that are this rich.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has some killer aromas, lots of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and caramelized sugar. Taste lives up to the scent, great blend of roasted coffee beans and milk chocolate. Has a nice coating mouth feel, one of my favorite oatmeal stouts.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on-tap at Fitger’s Brewery
A. Pours a dark black, 3mm mocha head, even after 10 minutes it still had a nice 1mm thick layer on top.
S. Smells of lots of oatmeal, slight chocolate, and rich roasted grain.
T. Tastes of oatmeal, lactose, some rich coffee and a buttery soft finish.
M. Medium-thich body, mild carbonation, slightly chewy and silky wet finish.
O. A solid beer. A hearty rich beer with lots of falvor, stron oatmeal presents, but not overbearing. Well bodied and thick. A nice rounded stout, but nothing that pops and really makes you love it. But easy to drink and fills you up.
