3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving type: bottle
Aroma- Dark roasted malt, Coffee smell and some chocolate
Apperance- Black, with a tan head that disappeared all too quickly. Some nice lacing
T/P- Taste of roasted malt and oatmeal with a nice cream like flavor, carbonation is very light which makes for a good smooth taste, does have a slight bitter flavor but it is not bad. Goes down very easy.
Overall- Nice stout, not too strong of a taste. It goes down very easily and it would be easy to down one and start another. Is a bit heavy being a stout and all, but is very nice as an after meal beer.

On tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown with fluffy beige head. Aroma is of bready, toasted malt, brown sugar and dark fruit. Body is medium, creamy and smooth. Taste is of bready, toasted malt, brown sugar, coffee and dark fruit. Finish is long and semi-dry. Not their best brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep brown with a small tan head that dissipates into a film. Aroma hit me as soon as I opened the bottle but weakened substantially after the pour. Features: Oatmeal, roasty nuts, hops are very difficult to pin, dough, and light alcohol. Taste is fairly well balanced: sweet, followed by sour, then light salt... bitter. Full body, creamy, average carbonation, with a longer bitter finish. Not my favorite stout but would drink again... Would not BUY again.

Poured from a 355mL bottle (12 fl oz). Opaque dark black with decent beige head. Precipitating chocolate aroma with roasted malt nose. Light roasted malt flavour with very mild chocolate. Very light body. Little finish.

Tastes really good. Rolls around your mouth like clothes in a front load washing machine. Slight but not terrible hoppy aftertaste, but well worth it. Pours thicker than just any ale, actually pours like a stout.

One of the better oatmeal stouts on the market, it is the watermark to judge other oatmeal stouts by.

Thanks to Andres and Brittany! Deep brown, almost black pour with a creamy head. Aroma of Whoppers, oatmeal and roasted malts. Light chocolate and roasted malt flavor with oat sweetness and a dusty crisp ending. Easy drinking stout. Not bad.

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 isn’t 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.
