3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled with Tim, Rudy, and maybe Sammy. This rating is barely legible. Aroma is metallic chocolate with a slight sweetness. Opaque dark brown color with a creamy light tan head. Chocolatey, roasty, and slightly astringent. Boring.

Bottle - this was my first oatmeal stout of any kind, so take this for what it is worth. Excellent frothy head that lasted until the end of the beer. Excellent mouthfeel, very refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. Bottle enjoyed on the golf course: Pours a dark brown with a diminshing tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, light coffee and chocolate. Flavor was mostly choco-roast with some hop bite near the finish. Mouthfeel was lighter that I would’ve liked, but still had a bit of chewiness to it.

This a pretty decent oatmeal stout, malty and dark, with a nice head. Not the best oatmeal stout, but it would do if I had no other choice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark, almost black pour. Fairly stout like aroma. Roasted malts, a hint of chocolate. Burnt, slightly bitter finish. A bit porter like in body. I guess if I had to drink breck this would be it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The bottle poured a BLACK beverage covered by an ample creamy tan head that didn’t last very long but left nice lacing on the glass. The aroma was a complex mixture of chocolate, caramel and espresso coffee. The body was light with a creamy texture and average carbonation. The flavor started off with semi-sweet chocolate and coffee and settled to a middle of slightly bitter coffee. The finish was long, bitter and dry.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle. Very black with a small but thick tan head. Aroma is vanilla and chocolate with some roastiness. Taste is nicely hopped but I’m not diggin’ the hops here. Lot’s of chocolate but not much oatmeal. Funky stuff for sure.
