2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Balanced roasted malt with mild bitter cocoa on the finish, smoothed by oatmeal behind the profile. My bottle pours with low very low carbonation; not sure if this is just correct for the style, or that I cellared this for a couple of years and it lost carbonation. Very, very dark brown, near-black, close to opaque. Very drinkable, due to balance hopping, and tasty, but lacking in complexity. Which isnít inappropriate for the style, just nothing out of the ordinary for a decent stout here.

Reviewed from notes. Thanks to someone (5000?) for sending this bottle. Black pour with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate with some roasted malt and oats. Flavor is light smoke with some nice chocolate. Very dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a thick two fingers of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is great: roasted malt and chocolate.
The taste follows suit but with a mild bitter bite at the end.
The texture is smooth and soft with moderate carbonation.
It hits all the notes for the style with an added extra bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the April 2013 3R6P beer tasting. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small brown head that faded and left minimal lacing. The aroma was sweet chocolate, faint coffee, vanilla and a touch of smoke and port wine. The flavor was dry, bitter, roasty and smoky with a bit of coffee. Medium length dry, roasty and smoky finish. Medium body. Eh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
~Mild coffee like roasted grain aroma with sweet milk
~Pours black with quickly disappearing brown head.
~Sweet nutty bready flavor balanced with roasted coffee.
~Medium bodied with medium high CO2. Lasting bitter coffee finish.
~Enjoyable oatmeal stout. Could drink a lot of these, but nothing really stands out making this better than other oatmeal stouts.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. An average stout that works just fine but does nothing special. Like the Honda Civic of stouts.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice black color with a head that settles off to nothing. Sweet milk chocolate aroma. Rich, sweet, roasty, chocolatey taste, much like a milk-stout.
