Pours a clear black color with a hint of ruby red around the edges of the glass. The pour reveals a huge dark brown colored frothy head that required more than a few minutes to complete the pour as the head wanted to continually overflow the edges of the glass. No lacing.
The aroma is dark roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee.
The taste is bitter dark roasted malts with a dark chocolate and molasses finish. A strange metallic flavor is noticeable in the taste and is a little out of place. The aftertaste is mostly coffee and chocolate with a fairly strong bitterness.
Light body with medium carbonation. A smooth creamy mouthfeel.
Overall, not the best representative of a oatmeal stout. The body is too light and the flavors are not bad, but the metallic flavor that I was getting tends to last on the palate. A disappointing beer as I usually always enjoy this style beer. Give one a try....maybe you will like it.
