3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bomber bought at their tasting room.
Two fingers of dark tan head on a black body. Low retention on the head though.
The smell has a faint roasted malt and smoke.
The taste is dark bitter chocolate and roasted malt. Pretty good.
Smooth texture, low carbonation and heavy body.
A great stout with a solid profile.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thick deep opaque black with fairly persistent dark head. Terrific appearance. Nose is burnt malts and burnt coffee and light vanilla. Slightly slick mouthfeel. Initial sweetness, but main perception is that of bitter burnt coffee and malts, with ash, despite the sweetness. Nice interplay of bitter and sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting.
Body is opaque black (flashlight tested).
Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain), with a note of vanilla.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, syrupy/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Starts out with a great appearance...first-pour opacity with a lasting head, that’s a perfect 5 for a stout in my book. And the mouthfeel is pretty good too, only a little too syrupy to get a 5. Where it doesn’t shine, though, is the aroma and flavor experience. It’s aromatically very simple, really just the basic stouty elements...chocolate, light roast, and vanilla...pleasant enough and without flaws, but boring. And in the mouth it’s quite sweet, with just barely enough finishing bitterness...drinkable, but nothing more.

Draught. Black with thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts with light smokiness, overall a fairly subdued smell. Taste is smooth (on nitro), though not very deep or complex. A pretty average oatmeal stout.
