3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an extremely dark brown with a tan head, looks pretty good. Smells of roasty malts, bitter chocolate and coffee pretty good but a little restrained. Taste follows the nose, it seems like it could be better again feels a bit restrained. The palate isnít what I expected, itís a little thin and watery, they really need to make this thicker, all in all itís decent, but go with the imperial stout, they really went all out on that one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub on 7/23/11. Darkest brown pour with a thick tan head. Roasty aroma to the point of char with some light chocolate notes as well. Roasted malt flavor with chocolate and a burnt coffee finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a thick, foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted, smoked, and charred malt with some parmesean cheese. Flavor of chalky bitter chocolate and a weak malt base. A decent stout but nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pint at the brewpub. Another thin, sudsy head. Nice smoky aroma on this one makes me want to dive in. The beer delivers a robust, roasty, fireside flavor with a fun bitter finish. Only downside on this is that itís a bit on the thin side. (#3821, 1/26/2010)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with a small, lasting, loose, tan head. Lots of roast in the aroma with notes of cocoa, roasted peanuts, and a little milk chocolate. Sweet rolled oat, peanut, and milk chocolate with just a hint of cofee and cream. Medium-full, creamy, body with soft carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I got this at the brewpub, while sharing a meal with BeerBaron617. Typically I wonít order a stout, simply because they arenít really my cup of tea, however it was an oatmeal stout, and those I do enjoy. I wasnít too disappointed with this one. Itís aroma was subtle, roasty chocolate notes. It had a very light mouthfeel, however the taste was pretty decent - light and somewhat refreshing. Sort of weird as far as a stout is concerned.

Had a few sips of this with MereLikesBeer at the brewpub. This was a lot better than the IPA that I had. It was roasty and had a nice chocolate note. Very light, but overall not bad. I would go back for this, and the food was pretty good too. Cheers!
