very opaque black, transmitted amber. spotty lacing. 1/2 finger head which disappated. roasted malt aroma. no visible bubbles but conditioning is active, but not overly so. first sip is heavenly. can’t really detect the oatmeal. dark malty goodness. excellent quality. tad bit of porter at the end if you’re looking for it.

Bottle into stout glass. Looks like it should. Pleasing aroma of chocolate oak. Similar taste. Smooth mouthfeel. Roasty tasty stout.

Wonderful sort of. Smooth and soft with bite. Milky, bitterness throughout, roasted almonds, brown sugar, light coffee, licorice. The hops are sizzly. The bitterness feels good but in the end I prefer my oatmeals much quieter. Great aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours almost black with a short fairly long lasting cream head. Aroma of mild coffee and a little chocolate. Relatively thin mouth feel but very smooth taste of coffee and chocolate. Not TOO sweet (as compared to say a mild stout). Very easy to drink but not too complicated
