  • Pours a clear black color with a hint of ruby red around the edges of the glass. The pour produces a thin layer of light tan foam that quickly settles out, leaving just a swirl or foam floating on top. Very little, if any lacing.

    The aroma is roasted malt with caramel, molasses, milk chocolate, a bit of dark fruit, as well as oats. A very pleasant complex aroma.

    The taste is burnt dark roasted malts with a bit of caramel that works into a dry earthy flavor with a dark chocolate bitter finish. The aftertaste is dry with a lingering bitter chocolate, mixed with semi-sweet molasses.

    Medium body with medium carbonation. Watery, but smooth mouthfeel. Dry bitter finish with a sweetness that seems to resurface the longer you wait before the next sip.

    Overall, an enjoyable easy to drink oatmeal stout. The aroma is really nice and complex, and leaves me wanting more out of the taste. The taste is nice, but not as complex and interesting as the aroma, but still proves to be a very tasty brew that I would have again. Try one!
