4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer is quite frothy, and the head is a nice light tan color with the beer itself being black. The aroma is full of hints of dirt, dough, and toasted malts and is quite strong without being overpowering. The taste is quite nice, for it doesn’t shock your system; rather, the light yet hearty sweetness coats your taste buds with its light-medium body. Although the taste is easy, this is a solid dark beer that fades off your tongue smoothly.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Created a thick fluffy head which quickly retreated leaving behind a solid dark brown liquid. Aroma smells sour with a bold roasted malt profile that assures me that this is a stout. The drink comes up empty with no real stout like characteristics other than a weak flavor of roast malt and a sour lactic taste in the finish. Palate is sort of fizzy and seems as though I’m drinking a Pepsi or something.

Dark roast, burnt molasses and raisins come through on the aroma. Pure black in color with no foam. Flavor is very watered down with faint notes of raisin, oats and molasses. Overall, nothing special. just an under average stout. D- rating.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark but with little to no head retention. Not as much roasted character as I would like and very little mouthfeel, especially for an oatmeal stout. This beer left me very disappointed as the style they were trying to brew is one of my favorites when brewed correctly.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark, slightly cloudy, cola brown, a bit light for a stout. Head is dusty light brown, but only a thin film... Aroma is sort of salty grain, some soy sauce and chewy tree. Body is medium-to-full. Flavor is bark, toasted malt, some leaf and tree with salty soy. Meh, not terrible, but not a delicious sweet stout that I would have loved.

Deep amber/soft brown. Toffee colored head. Chocolate malt on the nose. Sweet. Middle goes a little flat, carbonation takes away from the malt. Finish is surprisingly dry for the style. OK
