3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking black color with a small half fingered white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute and left a fairly decent spider web lacing.
The smell had a fair amount of roasty coffee notes over coating a nice graininess (oatmeal, I guess). There’s a fairly nice vanilla aroma invading as it warms.
The taste was mainly roasty and sweet through the coffee and graininess to the vanilla and slight chocolate that ends up slightly coming in as it warms.
On the palate, this sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation seemed appropriate for the style and worthy to me.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good Oatmeal Stout, though it seemed grainier on the nose than just oatmeal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge mocha colored head recedes slowly over the black body. Aroma of bittersweet chocolate with a hint of dark fruit. Coffee and chicory stand out in the initial taste while the earthy roasty flavors play catch-up. More chocolate in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.

12oz bottle into an English pint glass. Pours a rich black with a thin creamy head. Rich roasted malt and coffee aroma which is unfortunately not matched in the flavour department. Rather light on the palate with a sweet flavour and a light bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poored out of bottle into a glass. Poors dark with a thin tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, and a nice nutty smell. I really enjoy the aroma of this beer. The initial taste of the beer is that of a barley, alcohol taste. Soft notes of bittnerness, which in my opinion is great. The after taste is what makes this beer shine. The after taste is of barley, chocolate, and coffee. I love bitter beers, and stouts nonetheless so this was a great beer to drink for my tastes.Thanks for the great brew! Cheers .

Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma has some milk chocolate, coffee, and roast malts. The flavor is similar but very harsh. Thin in the end. Great start, so so finish.
