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 Whole Foods Glen Mills. Blackish pour tan head but only some, lace was prevalent not so much now, aroma is lots of roast, barley, earth, malt, coffee. Flavor is a shadow of the smell. Love the roasted barley and coffee. Smooth.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is chocolate, oat, quite intense. Taste is chocolate, oat, some green peppers, leather, nutty, light and refreshing. A bit too light after this intense aroma. Fine-bubbled carbonation. Sweetish, but not really sweet and a little bit too watery. Quite light actually. Good.
