Pour is a thin black with a small tan head. Aroma is a decent roasted oat with a bit of char thrown in for good measure. Flavor is a nice roast and char malt all around. Maybe a bit too thin but the roast and charred oat leave a nice flavor on the tongue. Pretty nice oatmeal stout. Plenty of roasted oat flavor with being over the top. Alcohol is hidden quite nice as well.

Bottle from Dan at Christmas. We had last night after Dan’s graduation dinner at Bad apples. Dark black pour with a light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, oats, chocolate and a slight sweetness. Very smooth tasting, sweet, creamy, roastd malt, all around well balanced taste. Nice lacing on the glass.

Honestly not even close to the better Stouts I have had. Disappointing. I don’t know what it is.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich, appetizing, dark chocolate brown with a thick and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma has notes of roast malt, coffee and licorice. These notes come forth even more in the flavor, which adds a hint of woody hops. Texture is thick and oily, if not very tingly. Go organic!
