3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, over a clear dark brown (SRM 35) body.....nose is chocolate. light coffee, toffee/caramel....taste is sweet chocolate, coffee, toffee/caramel, finishing with a hint of bitterness.....mouth feel thick, slightly creamy, carbonation accentuates creaminess. This falls well within the style of Sweet Stout and meets it quite well. For me, it is a bit too sweet, but it is the style. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gift bottle brought back by neighbors from latest Minn. trip. Poured to a Czech-pils glass showing a ruby highlighted, black/brown color, with a brownish tan, froth & bubbles head that gradually diminished to a thick ring & bubbly film, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The nose was a hint of sweetness, creaminess & smooth malt, roastiness, cocoa, a touch of vanilla, and coffee/espresso on the back. Medium+ bodied, the flavor presented a roasty, smokey, lingering bitterness that was propelled to the palate by an amped effervescence. Only medium malt backup, with the flaked creaminess more prevalent in the aroma imo. Finished with some tart and dry astringency.

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.

On tap at Beertopia. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a small tan head and good lacing. Chocolatey, roasty, light maple, earthy, dirty hoppy, and coffee aroma. Taste is sweet malty, cocoa, light vanilla, dark fruits, brown sugar, caramel, and grassy hops with a roasty bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty decent stout .

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of TheHoff43: Baker’s chocolate and roasted barley malt aroma, mild. Mahogany, thin tan head. Astringent, but smooth medium body, alcohol well hidden. Dark chocolate with the impression of raisins in the finish. Reminiscent of the oatmeal, raisin, chocolate chip cookies that my dad sometimes bakes for Christmas, but less doughy or sweet. Pretty well conceived.
