4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
tap at Breckenridge brewpub in Denver - Pours very dark brown with a big tan head that laces heavily. It has a rich aroma of chocolate, coffee, and dark roast malt. The flavor is big on the coffee and dark roast malt with the bitter roast and maybe some hops lingering in the finish. It’s full bodied and quite good. It’s interesting how widely the ratings vary here and makes me wonder if the quality of some batches was lacking. This one is excellent though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bartender indicated this was the oatmeal stout on nitro. A dark stout with a thick resilient moka head. Aroma is more subdued than the OS, doughy and pleasant. In mouth, a silky stout, very sustained chocolate bitterness, yet balanced. Medium bodied. On tap at Ballpark brewpub 24 Jan. 2009.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft at the brewpub. A pitch black beer with a faint brown shine under a thick brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of roasted malt, but also light notes of butter. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt and butter, and the body is thin. In my opinion they shouldn’t have sold this specimen.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft @ the Breckenridge brewpub: Poured opaque with a big creamy tan head. The aroma was HUGE diacetyl. I have never smelled so much of it in a beer before. I had my head turned to the person next to me when the bartender put the beer down and I smelled it. There was some sugar notes as well . The flavor had tons of butterscotch as well but without the sugar sweetness that the aroma had. There was a little roasted malt that managed to poke through.
