4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 Aroma is espresso and nuts. Appearance is as good as they get, black with a great dark tan head. Taste is full of coffee and bitter chocolate. Palate is thick as well as oily, roasted coffee beans up front and ends bitterly with a nice cocoa finish. Overall this beer has no flaws. Great start to finish. Must try.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Pitch black. Two fingers of a dark brown head that doesn’t last. Basically no lacing.
Smell: Mm. Roasty and giving off the typical chocolate and coffee aromas, but also a caramel note that really makes me want to try it.
Taste/feel: Definitely get the creaminess from the oatmeal, that’s the first thing I notice on every sip I take. The carbonation is very mild as well. The flavor is some deep roasted malt with a dark chocolate and black coffee finish. Not as robust as I was expecting, but very good. Aftertaste is a bit bitter with a burnt/ash flavor a bit there as well. Quite drinkable for the ABV, but still a bit light in the flavor. The mouthfeel is nice, but could use just a liiittle bit more carbonation, as this almost comes off as flat.
I’ve had One, I have Two, and will need to get myself Tres and Fore to try out when I head back to the store. This is a very respectable oatmeal stout. It’s not a fantastic one, but a damn tasty beer that I’d seek out again.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Un contingent de notes sucrées, torréfiées, lactées qui m’ébranlent un peu. J’ai l’impression en la buvant de me retrouver devant un session stout à 5%, j’ai peur. Le corps est riche et velouté mais devient rapidement évasif pour une buvabilité malhonnête.

Pours a dark brown color with a foamy tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma is oats and malts. Flavor has a nice, complex combination of flavors that includes sweet oats, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and a finish that is mildly bitter. Has a full body feel. Delicious.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Coffee, smoke, and dark toast on the nose. Black, thin beige head. Full body. Coffee with blueberry accents, alkaline and neither sweet nor dry. Finishes with an aspirin-like bitterness that is rather off-putting. Intriguing.

Nice dark roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Flavor is dark roasted malt and some bitter chocolate. Flavor is big but not overwhelming. Easy to drink. Great beer.
