3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a near-black brown with thin creamy-tan head with decent retention and some lace. Aroma is sweet, notes of licorice. Taste is... disappointing. Watery bready malt with some chocolate - more like a porter - and surprisingly present hops (that bit no altogether bad, but puzzling). Slightly sour, notes of dark fruit. Thin body, medium carbonation. If this had been marketed as a porter, I think I wouldn’t have been so disappointed & confused.

Can - Roasted malts. Jet black thin white head. Roasted malts with a touch of bittersweet chocolate. A basic but decent stout, very sessionable if not interesting.

Pretty typical dry stout. Dark, white head, even has the texture of a Guinness. Nothing too interesting, but an okay beer.

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.
