4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of Irishboy. Pours brown with a thin tan head. Smells of malt, rich chocolate and some oats. Tastes malty with nice dark chocolate elements. Some cherry tartness is there as the beer warms up. Finish is coffeeish and slightly bitter with some nice earthy hops revealing themselves at the very end. Great multi-layered sweet stout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy of Quake1028 again, thanks John. It pours black with light brown mocha head. The aroma is roasty mixed with charred malts, licorice, mild smokiness and hints of malt sweetness. The taste is roasty, chocolate and oatmeal twang to start and becomes increasingly more charred. Midway another pulse of dark chocolate hits before being dragged into oblivion by the burnt malts. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, his bottle, via trade with HopDog. Poured thick black, opaque, with a large light brown feathery head, nice lacing, beautiful "guiness" liveliness to the pour - top marks. Rich, nutty, oily overroast malty aroma, strong coffee and a cereal toastiness that I guess is the oatmeal ... there are even hops in here too! The flavour has a nice mild acidity and slightly curdled milk character added to it (thatís a plus, believe it or not), with some chocolate cherry and herbal hops in there too - the body is a tad watery, but itís creamy, smooth, lightly carbonated and has a rich, satisfying creamy balanced finish that I appreciated. I imagine this would be kick-ass on cask when fresh - excellent sweet stout. Thanks for the share, P! (and I think this now puts me in the "Stouties* list for the first time - yay!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Black, thin frothy tannish head, sparce lacing.   Roasty, ashy, midly sweet on the tongue.   Not terribly big, seems a little on the thin side.   Clean, not acrid.   Lactose on the nose, amongst the
soft roastiness and lactose.   Smooth, slight apple skin on the finish.   Decent, even if a touch on the lighter side.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry courtesy of hopdog. Pours a deep dark black with a large foamy lasting mocha head. Wonderful roasty and nutty aroma with some coffee, oatmeal and dark chocolate along for the ride. Flavour, oh yeah, thatís different and quite tasty: I agree with HogTownHarry, thereís a milky aspect to the flavour but in a good way along with chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and some hops for good measure. Creamy mouthfeel and goes down smooth but could be a little more full bodied. This was a brewery I never heard of and an íextraí from my trade with hopdog so I didnít know what to expect but I must say, I am pleasantly surprised as this is a damn fine beer. Thanks hopdog!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; Nearly opaque with ruby highlights that produced a frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of oat, mocha, nut, caramel, coffee, prune, floral hops. The taste starts twangy with a lactic tone and some fruity character on top a roasted malt base. Additional undertones of smoke, nuts, and coffee. Minor bitterness on finish. The feel is thin and crisp, fizzy. Overall, a solid stout with some nice character. Thanks for the brew Joe.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is the first time that I can remember being able to pick out a strong aroma of oatmeal in an oatmeal stout. It took me a while to identify it. Black with a slender brown head, it also had caramel and roasted malt in the aroma. Quite smooth, the flavor is roasted malt, caramel, bittersweet chocolate, and a bit of coffee. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Brennanís Country Farm Market in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Pours a dark opaque near black brew with a thin light tan head that has some good retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted dark malt, sine dark chocolate and coffee character with a touch of licorice and molasses. Taste is full bodied, semi-sweet with little carbonation along with flavors of roasted dark malt, a touch of flowery hops, oatmeal and some dark pitted fruits. Finish is semi-sweet at first and then a dry roasted dark malt aftertaste that sticks around after the finish.
