This is the worst beer I have ever had. It tasted like musty skunk water and that is being generous. Had the Oil Can Stout version at Sanfords in Sheridan WY.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark black with tan head. Aroma is slight roasted malts, not getting much. Fairly light body. Roasty dark malts with a little bit of oatmeal and some sugary sweetness. Not bad but pretty average.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison Wisconsin during my stay for GTMW. Impressively black color. Thin ring of bubbly light brown head. Leaves decent ropes of lace. Medium-plus body. Good chewy thickness to the texture. Smooth, kind of crisp, light carbonation. Light dry finish. Good roast aroma, some coffee, light bit of dark chocolate, and just a hint of dark fruit. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Great, full, flavorful and satisfyingly bitter and roasty oatmeal stout. Much better than expected. Great to enjoy with my sandwich.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice dark brown close to black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some clingy semi - thick lacing trying to stick to the glass.
The smell was basically roasty with a tad of light chocolate and coffee.
The taste followed the nose.
The palate was slightly roasty and carried itself impressionable over my tongue in a good way making it semi - sessionable.
Overall I say that this was a pretty good beer.
