3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark opaque brown with good tan head and lacing. Aroma reminds me of chocolate syrup with chocolate and vanilla flavors. Some caramel and milky aromas also. Taste is milk chocolate with lightly roasted malt and oats, quite a bit of caramel sweetness and vanilla. Finishes with a bit of dark chocolate bitter. Mouthfeel is medium-full and somewhat creamy but higher carbonation keeps it from feeling as creamy as I'd like. Maybe could have benefitted from a slightly higher ABV and less carbonation. May have made the flavor richer and more complex for my palate but still drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Undated 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass (from notes).
A- Pours a fully opaque black color with large, dark tan head. This quickly reduces to a thin layer, but this has excellent retention and a thick ring that leaves plenty of sticky lacing.
S- Baked bread, oatmeal, and plenty of roasted malt with no burnt or even particularly dark roasted grains.
T- A full, hearty malt flavor that’s richer and darker than the aroma indicates, and with more contribution from the oatmeal. Well balanced and very lightly smoky. Slightly bitter and a tad sour, with a fine and lasting, toasted grain aftertaste that has a light coffee edge.
M- Medium carbonation; creamy smooth, slick/oily mouthfeel; Full body.
O- OATMEAL stout - easily recommended for those who like more than a hint of oatmeal in their stouts.

Tap: clear, black, with thick head and good lace. Very lifted mocha, coffee, cocoa and certainly creamy. Chocolate and dessert. Roasted and chocolate. Creamy but lacking mid palate. Dry, not sour, medium low bitterness.
