Smokey aroma from the bottle. Pours black with nice tan head. Some legs, but dissipates to a thin halo in about 1 minute. This one lets NO light through. Aroma of sweet malts, herbs, and dark fruit from the glass. Very smokey malted flavor with only a slight hint of bittering hops. Carmelized brown sugar...The mouth feel is wicked nice, thick and a bit oily. Slight tartness on the finish, lingering sweet, smokey, and salty flavor. A little less oatmeal and more towards a sweet smoked stout. But then again, when I think of an American Stout, this is what I envision. As it warms up, the oatmeal seems to come more into play. Very enjoyable! Tasted @ 51F.
This Oatmeal Stout is dark brown to almost black in color with a rich cream colored head. It has a pleasant, full-bodied, smooth flavor profile with an aromatic blend of coffee, oats, and roasted malts. A long, rich and smooth finish with a subtle dark chocolate finish. This oatmeal stout is something great to behold, enjoy!
