Lost Coast 8 Ball Stout

This was another Hanukkah present from my brother Dan and another good choice.  You may remember the first bottle from when I used it to make a Swedish Christmas Rye.  This time, it was all for me.
After all the Imperial Stouts I've been drinking, this oatmeal stout makes a nice counter point.  Sweet and roasty nose.  I felt the sweetness in the nose was very reminiscent of a milk stout.  While the mouthfeel was thing, it had some nice, bubbly carbonation.  Roast, some sweetness, and some fruitiness all finishing with more of the pleasant roastiness which then lingers for a bit.  This is a very drinkable oatmeal stout and a nice change of pace.
