4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber bottle poured a clear dark brown hue w/ a mostly lasting creamy tan head and fair lacing. Heavy aroma of chocolate liquor, licorice, vanilla, and molasses. Initial flavor is a moderate sweet leading to a moderate bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are a dark roast, dark chocolate, vanilla, a subtle oak from the barrels, and brown sugar. Medium to full bodied, lively carbonation and a light alcohol dryness in the finish.

Deep mahogany with almost no head. The aroma has an interesting mixture of chocolate covered raisin, licorice, and bubblegum. It has a medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. The taste is sweet up front with a more roasted finish.

On draught at Bailey’s Taproom. 2010 vintage. A deep, oxidized aroma. Hints of dark chocolate, oats, and almost a barrel aging. Well worth the try.

Great. Pours with carpet lacing, black with some clear ruby tinges. Aroma of booze, cereal, sugar and creamy consistency. Leave is sour and a little bitter. Good for oatmeal stout. Tap at Hopcat.

Nitro draft at Khyber Pass. Pitch black pour with a huge creamy tan head. Not much aroma due to large head. Tastes like an uber-dark chocolate malted milk shake. Creamy and sweet up front then switches to a lingering finish of nice bitter burnt barrel notes. Creamy mouthfeel, assisted by the nitro. Pleasant dark earthy flavors as well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Jacobs Pickles UWS.. Pour is a muddy brown with thick root beer float head. Aroma is sweet oats, oak, chocolate. Taste is coffee, sweet chocolate, oak, vanilla. Thin body with velvety texture. Not at all what I was expecting from an oak aged oatmeal but interesting in a very unique way.
