Nice, bold chocolate, coffee, and oat character, but none of them are harsh or overpowering.
This somewhat calico recipe is the result of winning ingredients for a porter but wanting to brew an oatmeal stout. I like it so much that I will brew it or something like it again.
Low IBUs are important here, as the roasted barley and chocolate malt balance much of the sweetness on their own. Higher hop bitterness could lead to a rough beer.
