4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep, pillowy black. Soft roast/coffee, milk, heavy cream, cocoa powder. Clean roasted malt, cocoa, toffee, light brown sugar, lactose-esque sweetness. Great medium+ mouthfeel from the oatmeal. Lives up to its name of being a little slick, with great roast residual hanging on.

Draft. Pint glass poured a dark brown/black color with a nice 1 finger, thick tan head. Slightly roasty coffee aroma but otherwise not an overly strong nose. Medium mouthfeel. Dark fruit and slight roast coffee. Pretty smooth. Slight sweetness. A little booze notes in the end. Nice lace. Overall, a decent nice drinking stout.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Good stout, coffee aroma. Very dark brown coloured body with a thin head. Rich, smooth, chocolate malts. More coffee than chocolate. A good one for coffee fans, and even I, not a coffee regular, was fine with it. Above average mouthfeel.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the brewpub. Black pour, really frothy light cream head. Slight/moderate coffee and cream nose. Full and rich creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation, terrific. Taste is chocolate, cream, oat, and not very much roasty bitterness at all. Delicious!

On tap at Genna’s Lounge in Madison, WI. Notes only. Creamy with a big thick head; coffee, chocolate; an odd bitter off-flavor. One of my favorite styles, but definitely not my first choice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap sample. Poured a black color with a large fizzy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark coffee and malt aroma. Medium to heavy dark chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy sweet coffee finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good rich beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on tap at the brewpub (Madison, WI). Pours an inky black pour, opaque with a frothy grey light brown head, dies to a ring and laces ok. Aromas are oatmeal, roasty barley, touches of coffee, sweet and dark chocolate, with some more roasty, creaminess, and toffee, caramel. Initial is medium bodied, maybe some bit thicker. Roasted barley, touches of coffee, a bit earthy with sweet oatmeal. Chocolate, sweet and dark. A slightly earthy finish with lingering roast and sweet toffee and oatmeal. A solid sweet stout, perhaps a little under flavored. Ok
