2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drinking now cuz it was in sale and we are tired from hiking out from Moul Falls in Wells Gray on a cloudless moonless night, feet soaked from standing in the middle of a creek with snowshoes on. Dark brown and a small bubbly head was all that the can would allow. Oatmeal, biscuit, some sweetness, cherry, light roast. Taste is so so. Light to faint bitterness. Weak roast, oatmeal, light choco. Dry. It’s ok and boring yet totally safe.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown with some light coming through with a thin beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and faint black licorice. Flavour is roasted malt, almost burnt notes, mild-medium bitterness(some from the dark malts and some from the hops), resin, light pine/citrus and a medium-high dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A solid dry stout. Way more flavor than Guinness. I get a lot of dark roasty notes and black licorice. Very attractive beer. Nice dark coffee and anise flavors. A solid dry stout.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs; thanks Ferris). Looks good; a slightly translucent dark cola with foamy beige head. Smells of dark malt, bitter chocolate, and roast. Tastes like it smells with a fairly bitter medium light-bodied semi-dry mouthfeel. Not bad, but not smooth like I’d expect an oatmeal stout to be.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark, nearly opaque brown. Frothy tan head, decent retention. Aroma is such dark chocolate, oats, and cereal. Taste is bitter, slightly earthy, with a hint of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Finishes long and bitter, was a lot thinner than I was expecting of an oatmeal stout. Not bad but nothing to write home about.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a a dark brown with large head, leaves good lacing. Tastes of roasted malts and dark chocolate with black coffee. Has a bitter finish. Not as "thick" as I would have expected, might as well have a Guinness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dry irish stout more or less indistinguishable from Guiness. Nothing wrong with it, but not much right with it either. Just a hohum dry stout. Very nice nose to it though.

Nothing wrong with it but there are far too many superior stouts available to bother with this one again.
