4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Near black colour. Big up front oatmeal aroma with nuts and hints of chocolate and coffee. Incredibly appetizing. Starts off roasty, then fades to a great milk chocolate character - very smooth, sweet and pure. There is a light nuttiness in the finish for variety. Creamy, full mouthfeel. Satisfying light stout with all the elements you want in a traditional oatmeal stout.

Not bad but a fairly one dimensional beer.

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 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured up on tap at Citrus Park, FL location. They tried to serve me this ale in a chilled glass. But they were nice enough to go in the back and bring back an unchilled tumbler. The beer coming out of the tap was still way too cold and caused the beer to taste harsh, near acidic and not at all tasty. It poured up dark brown with tan to mocha head. The aroma was a little off until it finally warmed up when I started getting some chocolate, roasty malts, a bit of burnt malts, sweet molasses, nuttiness and a touch of coffee. Again once it started to warm up it began to taste pretty darn nice with an unwavering nuttiness mixed with roasty to chocolate notes and black licorice. I also get a mild burnt maltiness to go along with a tasty sweet molasses creating a pleasing balance. The oatmeal creamy mouth feel was only just there in the end due to the slightly over carbonation and being served generally too cold. Do yourself a favor and order this in a room temp glass and twenty minutes before youíre ready to drink it. If not it will taste like crap!! Get a clue BJs.
