  • A: Deep brown, but when just a tad's left in your glass it dark mahogany. Light brown, soft foam head of low-medium retention. Very little lacing.

    S: Super appealing aroma. Dark fruit and brown sugar are my initial thoughts. It's caramel malty, but not in an overhwhelming way. Then faintly some peat and chocolate.

    T: Surprise, much lower flavor profile than I would have expected. Not sweet, mostly crisp and dry. The typical thick mouthfeel of oatmeal stouts is barely there.

    O: It's a likeable beer, just an atypical Oatmeal Stout. Very easy drinking, and not too filling. I like the roasty malt taste, and the aroma is killer. If I had access to this on a regular basis it's a smooth option.

  • Pours opaque with just a minimal amount of light making it through on the edges. An inch of sexy tan foam covers the top while lacing is spotty with most falling back.

    Aroma is roasted and dark fruits. Light peat seems to have a presence as well. A little light on the scent overall. Deep down hints of brown sugar.

    Taste continues with the same light notes found in the nose. Caramely sweet at first that transitions to roasted and peat on the back end.

    Medium body with quite the zesty carbonation. The finish of the beers brings a slight, typical oatmeal stout finish.

    The alcohol in this beer doesn't come through at all making this beer very easy to drink. Enough subtleties that add up to a complex drink that is mellow. Nicely done. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • A rich complex Oatmeal Stout with just enough hops to balance the copious quantities of dark roasted malts, and the addition of oatmeal for a creamy smooth drinkability.
