3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Regular old oatmeal stout, which I always enjoy. However, nothing stood out on this one, which was the second to last selection on my sampler. Dark color and burnt aroma and taste were on par. (5.3% ABV)

Creamy brown, not that much cream despite 75% nitro. Surprsingly thin Literally, the bottom of the barrel accoreding to the Brewmaster. Where is the chocolate malt?Roast and some bitter hoppy just didnt all work together. Least rated of 8 half pints.

This is a great stout! It has a nice appearance and is very light and easy to drink. You can definitely taste the coffee and chocolate flavors.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I had this on draft at BBW with the sampler. It seems to have a lot packed in here but the slightly wet mouthfeel gives it a smoothness which makes it a drinkable beer but not necesarily a noticeable one. The first thing I notice is a slight oatmeal flavor accentuated by malts and some roasted flavors but nothing stands out. I do like the mouthfeel of this one and drank it faster than the other 7.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught. The aroma of roasted dark malts and chocolate, light oatmeal. Arrived an almost opaque black with a nice thick creamy tan head. Flavor was good, chocolate, roasted malts and a light coffee. Palate was full and slick with just the right ammount of carbonation to lift it from your tongue. Overall I think the best of my night there, tasting and dining with my wife and son.

The final brew in the sampler (the sixth was a cider, which was good for dessert). Thick, dark black. A chocolatey, well-balanced stout. Quite smooth and buttery. Bitter, espresso finish. What’ll ya have? I’ll have a pint!
