3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Mesa,Az location. Sweet malt aroma with some grainy oats. Black body with tan head. Had a decent cold coffee flavor and medium sweet roast and left a toffee aftertaste on the palate. Chalk board had this listed as 6% and server couldnít tell me if there was any other name attched to just Oatmeal Stout as on board. So this looks like a good spot.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
nice black pour with a thick head. roasty nose without much else. tastes how the nose makes me expect. thin and watery. but "thin" ainít necessarily bad, so many impyís have made me think of unrefined crude as thin, so take it with a grain of salt. caramel and chocolate flavors emerge once this thing warms a bit. light coffee and burnt wood work well in the finish. probably responsible for my antics that followed once i was ready to go home, it couldnít be the tripel, the maibock, or the gods know what else i drankís fault

On tap at BJís Columbus. Poured dark brown with short head that did not last long. Taste was chocolate and burnt coffee...A very drinkable stout, but not as sweet as I like mine. Barleyís has a much better Oatmeal Stout.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at BJs Aurora, CO. Pours opaque with a spare dark brown fizzy head, mostly diminishing. Aroma is heavy malt (burnt, chocolate, coffee), light hops (grass), heavy yeast (leather, dough) with notes of tar, smoke and prune. Full bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation and a metallic finish. Light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness; heavy roasted malt flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the brewhouse in San Bruno. Pours nicely with a thick head in its pint glass. Aroma was full of oatmeal goodness. Flavor was very nice, but not as strong as i was hoping. Palate was very smooth and left a refreshing aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at the brewpub in Columbus Ohio location - Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head that fades quick. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and some caramel. Flavor is equal. Good roasted malts with chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Lots of carbonation gives this an overall fizzy mouthfeel that turned me off some. Other than that it was a pretty fair Oatmeal stout..

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Columbus location. Pours black with a wispy off-white head and thin stringy lacing. Light coffee and chocolate aroma, as well as a bit of malt. Medium-bodied and smooth with a roasted malt character, and mild hops and coffee flavors underneath. The finish is creamy and smooth and leaves a chocolatey aftertaste. Pretty good, and an encouraging start to my first exposure to this brewub chain.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
5oz sample BJís Cupertino, CA - Bartender told me the tap is 60% CO2 and 40% NO2 - Not sure if it was the "Lastos" but was a special oatmeal stout. Aroma is mild roasted dark malts with some chocolate and coffee. Pours black with a small head and little lacing. Flavor is more pronounced than aroma. Roasted dark malts, oatmeal, creamy mocha and a touch of chocolate. Palate is sticky and creamy. Easy drinking and tasty enough to wash down some pizza.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at BJís Arcadia. Little head. Dark brew, nice roasty aroma. Strong roasted malt flavor, some residual mild bitterness. Smooth, but not as smooth as some oatmeal stouts.
