4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Citric hops frame the dark malts so nicely, both in the nose and flavor. Lots of fruit and roasted grain malt. Superbly structed and balanced. A lively stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge creamy light brown head. A bitter chocolaty flavour that mixes pretty well with the roasted malts. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black pour with a 1/2" creamy tan head. Malt nose with a hint of bittersweet chocolate. Very creamy palate with a nice hop bite at the finish. Decent oatmeal stout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very nice sweet malt beginning
with a light hop finish. This thing pours up
a massive creamy head. Settles down to a thin
head though has light lacing throughout. Aromas of blackberrys
and alcohol. Excellent sweet stout.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark and smooth. Initally reminded me of Samual Smith Oatmeal Stout but not as creamy smooth tasting and also a bit more alcohol taste.

Beautiful brown thick huge head. The beer color is black black blackity black-black! Huge complex aroma of coffee, a little chocolate, and some roasted nut. Full flavor...very smooth. It looked so cool as I poured it...kinda like syrup. Nice carbonation. The feel was a little chalky...even with a little bit of chalk taste. Somehow it worked for this beer. I love my oatmeal stouts, and this one is very fair. Of course nothing beats a Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark black color, medium head. Slight caramel aroma. Deeply roasted malts, slight chocolate and coffee flavor, not very oaty. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Lighter bodied Oatmeal Stout. Very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark, I can definitely taste the roast malts. It does have a little bite on the finish. It is good sweet stout and a reasonable price.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours very dark, without almost no head. Very roasty and toasty. Chocolate and coffee dominate with lighter compliments of caramel and even a touch of fruit. Also, there is a vinuous quality to the nose. Tasty and smooth as hell. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark, almost black stout with a big frothy head. The roasty, almost smokey taste dominates. I recommend this brew, and all its oatmeal goodness.
