3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a very dark ruby color. There’s a nice two finger head with a khaki shade that caps the body off nicely. Retention is good, texture is great, and plenty of lacing is left behind. This one looks damn good.
S: This is what I’d want a solid oatmeal stout to smell like: decent chocolate notes, plenty of roast, and oatmeal to tie everything together. No twists or turns, just a really good aroma.
T: It starts with a bit of cola flavor. The finish, though, is excellent: it’s chocolaty, roasty, and bitter in all the right ways. While simplistic, it really makes good use of what it has to deliver an enjoyable experience.
M: Yes, this is rather thin in body. The rich flavor means this is still a good one to savor. But man...if it had a full body, that would really take it over the top. I still enjoy how creamy it is in the mouth, and there’s only enough carbonation to help it go down well.
O: Oh yeah, now this is the stuff. It’s not perfect, but it’s damn enjoyable - it would be in the 4+ range if it weren’t so thin or overly cola-flavored. I would definitely buy this again.

bottle from Utah Liquor store Park city. Pours dark, dark brown with a thin head. very malty on the tongue with a bit of smooth softness from the oatmeal. a bit of malt on the nose. A bit of chocolate lingers on the finish. Solid but it’s not knocking me out.

Perdi a conta. Acho que foi a nona ou a décima cerveja da noite... Lembranças muito confusas neste momento...
Creme castanho, denso e bem formado.
Líquido negro intenso, turvo.
Aroma forte de café.
Apesar de seca, muito café e caramelo. Boa acidez.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Svart vätska med kraftfull brun krona som lämnar mycket rester.
Doften är syrlig och frisk med lätta kaffeinslag.
Smaken är ganska tunn och syrlig med lätta kaffeinslag.
Ganska lätt och tråkig men inte dålig

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich and complex chocolate aroma, top stuff. Flavor is a bit of a disappointment considering a great aroma, no bitterness presence or roasted malts... Long and satisfying aftertaste thou, chocolate and coffee. Good one, I would expect a richer body when it comes to oatmeal stouts

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aromat zbyt delikatny. Piwo treściwe, a w smaku wyraźnie czuć dobrą kawę, mimo to piwo nie jest kwaskowate.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Based on the aroma alone, you know this is going to be good. The taste is rich and not bitter with an overall smooth and balanced taste - very flavorful with oat/caramel/chocolate notes and a bit of hop. Color is very dark, not quite black but what you’d expect from a stout.

Fuerte aroma a tostado y caramelo. Color café muy oscuro. Agradable al paladar suave y con cuerpo. Sabor muy tostado como tomar café. Final seco. Buen ejemplo de una stout avena.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can, consumed on 9-4-14. Malty, tinny, tarry aroma features a plum scent. Subtle and refreshing smell. Pours an opaque, dark brown with a large amount of dark beige head. Very nice, even head with a creamy consistency. Produces some lacing. Simple but enjoyable taste emphasizes the roasted malts and features a dark chocolate flavor. Dry, roasted aftertaste. Light body. Easy to drink. Oaty softness and some liveliness in the palate. Nice softness, but too aqueous to stand out. Overall, likable enough but simple.
