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!

Surprised by the low ratings. This a solid oatmeal stout through and through. Best of the best? No. But all the favors are here. Slightly roasty, not overly sweet. But good and solid.
