3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking black colored body with a decent one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated in about a minute. There was some light foamy lacing trying to cling but it slid for the most part.
The smell had a robust and dry flavored roasty coffee to chocolate aroma with a slight toasted effect to it.
The taste was bitter and sweet. It was bitter through the coffee notes but sweet through the chocolate.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body, perhaps closer to the medium side with a fairly decent sessionability. The carbonation seemed right on for the style and to me. There’s a nice bitterness running over my tongue in a non-assaulting manner.
Overall, I liked this porter, but I didn’t get much of any sort of "oatmeal" aspect about it.

This dark chocolate pour with a soft, light amber head reeks of chocolate, fruits and roasted coffee. What a fantastic combination of flavors! Lightly bitter and slightly salty, this oatmeal porter has a wonderful smooth feel and almost no aftertaste at all. It’s almost as if you are having that first delightful swallow over and over again! Highly recommended!
