3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
@ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Opaque black with a firm 1/2" deep tan head, bands of lace. Bitter edged toasted malt begins this brew, with the bitter never allowing the silky oatmeal and milk chocolate to take center stage. Not so bad, though, as what is present is a very good stout. Recommended.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours black with a small head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is nice, chocolate milk, light roasted coffee, anise, and a light fruitiness. Taste is a tad bland but not bad. Chocolate, coffee, anise, and cream, but all are muted. Medium to thick body, very creamy, slight chalky too. Ok sweet stout.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, unbdated, poured into a SA lager glass.
A: pour is clear and very dark brown but looks pitch black in the glass. A gentle pour is needed to keep the tall mocha head from going over the top. Glass is thoroughly coated upon tilting, with some lacing clinging the glass afterwards.
Smell: Sweet and rich with a suggestion of cinnamon, a clear note of chocolate, oat bread, a touch of dark fruit, and a hint of granola. Very slighty, and pleasantly, boozy.
Taste: not quite as good or complex as the aroma, but still quite good.
Sweet up front but balanced by the finish. Hints of coffee, dark fruits and chocolate in the aftertaste.
M - Full bodied; very smooth; ABV seems hight than 6%.
O: very nice cross-over (milk + oatmeal) stout with a super aroma.

Had this at a tasting at the Four Firkins grand opening in Minneapolis. Has an awesome arome of chocolate and coffee and the taste matches the scent. Has a nice smooth taste going down as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a thin beige head that has great retention. Aroma is roast, chocolate, grain, earth and planty hops. Flavor is roast, chocolate, an odd nutty note, sort of like what comes out as a nutty note to me in some cheddar cheeses, not a bad way to be likened to cheese for a beer... Medium, sticky entry leading to an oily finish and a moderate carbonation. Not bad at all.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark brown chocolate pour, thin lacing and an aroma of some sweet chocolate and sour nuts. Flavor is lightly malty, hints of chocolate and cooked vegetables. Not sure if this bottle was off, but this didn’t seem quite right.
