I love a good oatmeal stout, and this is one of the best I’ve had. Dark viscous black, thin tan head, left great lacing, sip markers all the way down. Aroma is strong, lots of coffee and chocolate notes, with a bit of caramel and mintiness in there. Flavor starts with coffee and sweet chocolate, turns wonderfully roasty mid palate, and finishes out with some mintiness and some dry roastiness. A beautifully crafted beer, definitely worth a try.
