2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a very dark ruby color; Iím let down that itís not mostly pitch black. The head is a one finger mocha shade. Retention is decent, and nice lacing is left behind.
S: Thereís a nice snap of roast here, along with a significant nuttiness. Hints of chocolate and oatmeal float around. Nothing special here, but it hits all the right notes a lighter oatmeal stout should.
T: Actually, it tastes closer to a roasty brown ale than a stout. The start is strong in roasted flavor, before a finish of nuts and oatmeal. I know whatís missing from this brew, but itís hard for me to explain, so Iíll just say this: all the roast here need more ístoutyí flavor to balance it out. Just a bit more defined sweetness (like cream or chocolate) would go a long way toward making this really good.
M: This is a lot drier and cleaner than I expected, with only a hint of lingering sweetness. The strong carbonation helps its drinkability cause, too. But you know what would really give it great drinkability? Better flavors.

Pours a jet black with a foamy, quickly dissipating, tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, and roast. Flavor is bitter roasted malts with a dry finish. Has a light body. A decent session stout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Incredibly, incredibly nice for the ABV. Really. Good stout backbone, and amazingly syrupy for the low ABV. A session stout?
