Deep opaque black, small tan head. Dark roast coffee, small honey molasses sweetness. Some light fruit notes. Quite bitter, maybe overly. Some light sweetness. Heavier body, quite a lot of oiliness. Fairly upfront alcohol. Decent, not super well balanced.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a very nice looking beer. It pours deep black w/ a long lasting head of small and evently sized bubbles. Lace sticks to the side of the glass in big sheets. This is a down-the-middle American stout and that is just fine by me. Its nose is roasty w/ a bit of malt that implies sweetness. It is only a bit sweet when you taste it though with a slight tart tang that combined with the roast brings to mind chocolate covered raisins. This is a medium bodied beer, maybe on the light side of medium, and it finishes with a lingering roastiness on the tongue. This is a damn decent stout. I would probably buy it again if it came in six packs rather than bombers.

A very well done oatmeal stout. Extremely smooth to drink, low on alcohol content. Had a nice chocolately finish and smells like chocolate. Had at home

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 Wow, ratings all over the place. The one I had was batch 37 I believe. Anyway, I reckon it was a decent session stout, the taste I’ll agree was a bit oatmealy sweet and a bit dry and a little but baltic portery. However decent stuff I’ll say. Serving: Bottle
