I donít smell or taste any oatmeal in this anywhere. The aroma is kinda weak and the flavor is sort of nonexistent. Its smooth so it has that going for it.

Bottle. Strong aroma when pouring of roasty stouty goodness. Thin head. Tastes like the commercial description. Not a heavy stout at all (if anything slightly watery back taste) so easy drinking.

Bottle to taster. Looks good; a semi-opaque dark cola with light beige lacing. Smells solid; dark malt and chocolate. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of roast and oats. Taste is a little less roasty, but definite chocolate and oats. A little weaker than Iíd like, though; not very long-lasting. Pretty decent stout, but it just doesnít leave much of a lasting impression. A light-drinker that would go well with a snack of cashews or something like it.

Nice oatmeal stout. Smells like coffee with oats. Tastes like roasted cereal. Finishes bitter. Average carbonation. Elements come together very well here. Pours black with good head and lacing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (bottled on 12/27/12)
Aroma: Cocoa, dark bread, hint of coffee
Appearance: Opaque black with big foamy white head
Taste: Cola, coffee, licorice
Palate: Medium mouthfeel, a bit thinner than the body suggests. Very smooth and integrated mouthfeel.
Overall: Well crafted and exceptionally drinkable. Could imagine this would be awesome on nitro, but even out of the bootle is really good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line :
Roasted malts turn to dark chocolate in this lean, quaffable Stout.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the brown-hued blackness.
-The carbonation is a tad too much for my tastes in the style.
-The chocolate-y finish is long and highly pleasant.
-Leafy hops tag along and eventually create balance.
