3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quintessential oatmeal stout. Pours black with a beige head. Very smooth mouthfeel. Sweet on the outset, but no cloying aftertaste. Instead finishes char bitter, that typical oat bitterness. If you like oatmeal stouts, you’ll like this. If not, you won’t.

Bottle from Bob - thanks! Black pour with a substantial, rocky tan head. Aroma is oats, grain, roast, light coffee, and minimal malt sweetness on the finish. Taste is clean oats and roast with a slightly char character followed by some coffee, chocolate, and light hop bitterness. Smooth, airy mouthfeel. Great beer.
