Schlafly Coffee Stout

12 oz single.
Amazed at how light the pout on this is. No hint of any kind of blackness from a typical stout, rather the body is akin to a red or amber ale and lacks depth in the look. Head is minimal. Actually looks like cold tea.
Nose has a strong coffee aroma and the tastes reflect that. However, not much depth at all, and definitely quite light – even watery. Mouthfeel is correspondingly weak and disappointing especially considering this is supposed to be (apparently) an oatmeal version where one would expect some depth.
Light acid mixed in with the coffee. Some acidic bitterness completes the picture.
A forgettable beer all around.
