3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single 12 FL. OZ. bottle purchased from Top Shelf Brews... for $1.79? I honestly canít remember, but I know it didnít exceed $2. To snifter it pours a dark charcoal brown with trim a toffee tanned head, not even a fingernail in length. Smells and tastes of cheap bourbon, sorghum molasses, booze, Lodndon yeast, vinyl, leather, and some brief roast/ash. Where the hell was the oatmeal? If it was there, it was well hidden. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to tmoney99. Best by date: Dec, 2012. Black color. Good 1-finger thick brown head. Nice toasty, oaty, chocolatey nose. Good lighter carbonation, lighter body. Easy to drink, smooth... But still a light chewiness to it that is very enjoyable. Nice roast, light coffee, light burnt malts. Good bittersweet taste. Slight metallic. Lightly smokey. Hint of tobacco. Some chocolate-cereal.. Some sediment visible at the bottom of the glass. Very satisfying oatmeal stout... Much better than expected

Bottle. Poured a black color with a medium off-white creamy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted dark sweet flavor with a medium dark sweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark black pour with a quick disappearing mocha head. Nose is chocolate and dark roasted coffee, and pleasant enough.
Taste is roasted coffee as well with a bitter sweet chocolate taste as well. Finish is sweet with a medium body, descent and drinkable but nothing to write home about. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours a black color with a thick brown head. Nice oatmeal taste with a burnt coffee finish. Had this with breakfast like the name suggests. Bit drier than I was hoping.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pitch black coloured body with a decent two centimetre tall pungent brown coloured head and a 90% opaque glow. Aroma of roasted malt, milk, alcohol and a bit of peat and mulch. Medium-bodied; Strong roasted malt flavours with some caramel and light milk chocolate, a bit of peat and a bit of a spice note. Aftertaste relatively mild with the roasted malt, hints of oatmeal depth and a bit of raisins noticeable. Overall, a decent sweet stout with a good depth, but not much complexity. Definitely one to try if you like the style or are trying to avoid over-hopped beers. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Half Time in Poughkeepsie, New York on 26-December-2012 for US$2.29 sampled at home in Washington on 04-January-2013.

Bottle. Pours almost black with thin brown head. Nice coffee aroma. Bold beginning with the taste of roasted and chocolate malt and a bit creamy. The finish lingers with bitterness from the roasted malt. This is a good stout, maybe not as smooth as some others but full bodied and full flavored.
