3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle at Lunar Brewing. Dark black/brown pour with a bubbly, dark tan head, and decent lacing. Aroma notes of coffee and dark chocolate are modestly present together with some roasted malt and a touch of bread. The flavor adds some malty/semi-sweetness along with some mild hop bitterness. An unfavorable harsh note was present in the flavor. Medium body, and not too creamy as I would have expected with the presence of oatmeal. Just okay.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. I know it's labeled "dark" but this beer was a bit too roasted for a beer with little depth and a light mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice and black, creamy but so-so head that varied a bit between several bottles, thin sheets of lace.
Nose is coffee, lots of chocolate, burnt malts, roasted malts.
Taste follows but roasty and burnt malts are a little more forward. However, the flavors are pretty well blended, and none particularly takes over the beer. Itís a little more coffee stout like than oatmeal stout like IMO, but itís a very tasty beer either way.
The body is pretty full and carbonation is creamy and smooth.
I will certainly buy another sixer of this one. There arenít many oatmeal, dry Irish, or coffee stouts to be found around here (at least not real close) and I like to keep a moderate ABV stout on hand when I can.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours the color of black coffee with a healthy tan head which lingers a bit. Aroma of very little, slightly metallic coffee. Taste is smooth but thin. Coffee notes, sweetness and the metallic aroma translates to the taste. Just too thin to really enjoy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
While this Oatmeal is not flat out the best, its far from the worst I have had in this style. A little too much hops, and not enough darker malt taste coming through, but still incredible drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from Supermarket Liquors. Black with 2 fingers of tan head that lasts. Roasted malty aroma with notes of rich chocolate and dark coffee. Similar flavor, smooth and sweet with light bitterness. Medium body with a slick, creamy feel and soft carbonation leading to a semi-dry, lingering finish. Not bad, super easy to drink.

A - Pours dark brown with reddish brown edges. Thin tan head that retains very well.
S - Roasted malt, dark cocoa, toasty oatmeal.
T - Roasted grain, hints of dry chocolate, cereal, bitter sour, and dry towards the finish.
M - Light to medium bodied, silky.
High drinkability. Very easy drinker, a bit thin though. Great session beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: mostly multi-grain bread loaf, something reminiscent of Christmas cooking, but also something kind of sour/yeasty; Appearance: standard opaque brown/black hue like Coca Cola, head is mostly off white, ever so slightly cream; Taste: flour/bread, some caramel/toffee; Palate: smooth, but in a kind of watery way, a good bitter kick in the aftertaste, which I really like because its kind of a combination between hops bitter and dark chocolate bitter; Overall: Iím enjoying it, but its not the best stout Iíve ever had...
