Roasted malt (Chocolate and coffee flavors), not burnt (Little acidic / bitter taste, almost non-existant) with a sweetness (Toasted Oats?) that didn’t overpower. No alcohol flavor. No hop flavors per say. Found at H-E-B - Tech Ridge Center in Austin Texas. Will have to see if I can find it in the DFW area.

Purchased at the flagship Whole Foods in Austin, TX; enjoyed while binge-watching House of Cards. Appearance is a moderately thick pitch black with a thin white rim. Aroma of light molasses, chocolate, light sweetness. Taste goes down with a light burn, rich chocolate notes, oats, light hops. Overall it's pretty good.

This was a pretty decent oatmeal stout, but it lacks the smooth, slick character of the oatmeal that I wanted.
