3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Tap @ Bethlehem Brew Works Pours a good black with a good tan head. The head lasts okay and laces decently. Has a good aroma of roast, milk chocolate, with hints of caramel and coffee. Has an average carbonation. A medium body. has a real good flavor. Good amount of sweetness, but blended real well. A good compliment to some food pairings. the finish is wonderful and a good aftertaste. This is a real good beer, I like it a lot.

On tap, Bethlehem location. Pours a flat black body with a small beige head. Very dry roasted malt nose with a little coffee and bakers chocolate. The flavor is dry and roasty with touches of oatmeal. Finishes with some chocolate notes. Light malt bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall this was a very nice Oatmeal Stout. Full flavored for the style with nice body.

Easily the best out of the sampler I had at Brew Works. Good enough to pick up a growler :) very smooth, chocolate bursts out in the flavour. Nice long roast and chocolate finish, medium bodied and VERY drinkable. Will be splitting the growler 3 ways tonight, cheers to a good beer!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft - Black, creamy dark tan head. Deep roasted sweet coffee aromas warm to notes of milk chocolate and hints of blackberry. Dark chocolate roasty tones mingle with soft caramel oat and coffee-like flavors. A touch of back end bitterness pulls this together very well. Medium bodied, soft smooth carbonation, lightly bittersweet finish. A great session stout...

Draft at brewpub. Pours a very deep brown with a nice creamy tan head. Medium-full bodied with a creamy texture. Nicely blended flavors of dark roast, oats, and chocolate with just enough bitterness to balance things out. Finish is dry and a tad ashy. Nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma was lightly fruity and roasty with a bit of chocolate. Mostly the aroma was filled with esters. The beer arrived pitch black opaque with a tan frohty head which stood super tall to lace the glass. The flavor was roasty and lightly winey with a strong estery presence. Chocolate and roast with an espresso and caramel which improved by leaps and bounds as the beer warmed. The finish was dry with a lasting winey presence too long into the aftertaste. The body was medium-full and the carbonation was nicely done making the beer creamy and smooth on the palate. An ok beer, but not wonderful due to flaws. Pint at BBW.
