Bottle. My first oatmeal stout and she still stands strong among others. Pours a beautiful oily black. Aroma is of coffee and roasted malts. It taste of chocolate, coffee, dark fruitiness and has a smokiness to it. Not as sweet as other oatmeal stouts, so it is a welcome change. Has more of a bitter smoky aftertaste as well. She is a fine stout in my books.

Opaque dark brown with minimal head. Malt, alcohol, roast aroma, but less vigorous than I would like. Mildly bitter roast chocolate with emphasis on the roast. Malt and cereal present as well. Dry finish. Although good, I personally prefer my stouts to be less dry.

Dark roasty malt, toast and char. Long and lingering finish. Hints of cocoa and coffee, a little dry overall. A little thickness, but not too creamy. Very nice.

Pours fizzy, cola-black with a dark tan, cascading head.
Chocolate, oatmeal and a dash of cinnamon in he aroma.
Taste is lightly bitter, coffee....cream, chocolate malt..a bit of smokiness.
Very smooth and filling.....slightly thin feel, but rich and robust despite the lightness.
Very tasty.....I could drink these everyday.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle. Little lacing and the head vanished in a couple of minutes. Kind of a burnt toffee and coffee aroma. The coffee came through a bit more in the taste. Nice carbonation and very smooth. Decent beer, still prefer the Rogue oatmeal though.
