3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The oatmeal is really apparent in this stout, giving in a smooth, but sweet rich malt quality. There is also some nice chocolate and lingering coffee roastiness, and a small dose of dark fruits as well. Overall pretty thin and light bodied, with a slightly smaller finish than I was expecting

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pours flat black with a medium thick light tan head that diminishes slowly. Patches of lace on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee, along with a touch of dark chocolate. Medium, smooth body with roasted malt and hops flavors. Some coffee and dark fruit is present too. The finish is short and roasty with a lingering coffee aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

10 ounce serving. Black with a thick brown head. Coffee, chocolate, and oats. in the aroma and flavor. A bit on the watery side. Good, but pretty basic.

Tap, brewpub, part of six pack sampler. Pour is dark brown / black with a tight tan head. Get the malty / oatmeal aroma immediately. Roast flavor, with a nice full, creamy body. Finish is sweet and sugar, but closes nice and quick.

This looked pretty good. Dark dark brown beer with a good sized head. Head looked like wet cement - thick and gray. Chocolate overtones abound in this beer. A thinner beer than I expected however. I think itís average.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very tasty but very thin, with a slick and very light mouthfeel. Creamy and full of some dark chocolate and roasty coffee, but has some hints of french silk pie, very smooth and creamy, just could use more body.

served up in a dimple mug, deep brown in color, silky medium-body mouthfeel, but too light in the roasty-coffee flavors and with that familiar mincemeat pie or raisiny aspect that i find in their muddy mo stout and so overwhelming in thier possum trot. a worthy brew but not quick what i expect from an oatmeal stout

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is mild raisen and coffee- the color is a nice dark mahogany but the head dissipates quickly. Roasted coffee, raisen, and maple but not as strong and complex as some oatmeal stouts Iíve had. The body is a little thin for a stout. Not bad but far away from being the best oatmeal stout Iíve had.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Faint aroma, but with some dark chocolate sweetness and coffee. Dark, opaque ebony color, rather slight head. Roasted and toasty malt flavors here, espresso, cream, dark chocolate, oat silkiness, light plummy fruitiness...possibly the most complex 75th St. beer I've sampled to date. Finishes with a light, chocolate syrupy sweetness. Medium body and low carbonation, smooth. Surprisingly tasty. I may even pick up a jug of this stuff before it goes away...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark black with a thin bubbly head that faded quickly. Very light chocolate aroma. Surprisingly watery mouthfeel, with a definite iced coffee flavor and body. It smooths out towards the end, but remains lacking in the body and flavor one expects in an oatmeal stout.
