3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap, at brewery. Black body with some brown on the edges under a small creamy brown head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is heavy and thick with roasty goodness and chocolate with some sweet cream and coffee. The flavor is equally full, great coffee and roast, very smooth from the addition of the oats, just a little sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice creamy texture but mostly due to the oats rather than the nitro I think, just a touch of fizz. Lengthy coffee and roast finish. I’ve been waiting for this beer to come back on for a long time now. It was worth the wait! I love it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A smooth and slightly chocolaty Oatmeal Stout. By-the-book brew but very good session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Black body with a medium long-lasting tan head
In long: Creamy and smooth body typical of an Oatmeal Stout. Smooth roasted cereals with a light chocolate and caramel flavour followed by a nice bitterness of medium intensity. Hops have a slightly citrusy and coniferous flavour. Nothing I haven’t had many times before but the overall quality is above average and it makes for a very nice session stout. This is a highly drinkable beer that you can have over and over again to help you go through a boring day. Therefore totally appropriate for Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft, Bullfrog Brewery. Pours a very dark, brownish-black color; light tan head with excellent retention and creamy lacing. Generous, smoked meat and chocoalte in the aroma; smoke and toasty grains. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: plenty of smoke (smoked meats, mildly charred) and dark chocolate; relaxed carbonation; creamy, roasted chocolate character; very sessionable, with a light perimeter of citrus mid-palate. Medium, smoke and charred malts in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewery. Very dark (almost pitch black) body, with a dark tan head with medium thickness to the lacing. Has a black, smoky oat and barley aroma, very rich in the nose, with motor oil smoke and husky toasted graints everywhere. Very impressive nose, resembling an imperial stout in aroma, contained in a lower gravity stout. Chewy, moderately thin (though maybe my palate was setup for imperial stout after the nose), but creamy and toasty with heavy oat and some dusty, dry barley malt flavors. Overall a very good stout, well made, and I think if this recipe were modified into an imperial oatmeal stout we could be talking about something really, really good.
