3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from LCBO. BB Aug 2016. Pours reddish dark brown with moderate light tan head. Aroma of... well, yea, some roast and ground coffee. Tastes sourish-bitter roasty, dark bitter chocolate and ground coffee. Pretty mellow on the palate but hardly the oatmeal softness I’d have expected. Very thin but in a way active carbonation, livened by the stimulating effect of coffee. Overall pretty good but I would’ve loved even more coffee in this, and perhaps more softness too.

Dark pour, large offwhite head and good lacing. Fresh brewed coffee, chocolate in the aroma. Roasted malt, coffee,dark chocolate taste. Medium body. Not bad at all. Would like a bit more oomph behind it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
473 ml can from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Deep brown-black with a fairly firm mocha head.
Aroma: Roasted malts, light to moderate coffee, a little dark chocolate, sort of a thick, grainy/cereal thing, a touch of molasses.
Palate: Medium to medium+ body (expected more) with fairly full and prickly carbonation (expected less).
Flav.: A bit more coffee, still plenty of roasted malt, doesn’t get astringent or roasty bitter though, a touch of dark chocolate, fairly dry and stark; dry with moderate bitterness and a smooth, roasted malt finish.
Fairly competent. “Oatmeal”, to me, means a bit more body and mouthfeel than this offers. The coffee is nicely expressed (expressoed??).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from the LCBO listing 5% ABV. Pours a dark brown, almost black colour with very little highlights. The head is creamy, bubbly, long lasting with some nice dirty lacing. Chocolate malt aromas with hints of coffee and roasted malts. The taste is mildly sweet from the oatmeal, over the roasted malts, chocolate and coffee notes. Decent Oatmeal Coffee Stout but nothing too exceptional.

Inky black pour with a creamy tan head that dissipates quickly. A ton of roast coffee on the nose with dark chocolate and more roast coffee on the tongue. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very small tan head, fades quickly and clings to edge of glass. Very dark brown / black. Roast, chocolate, oats, coffee aromas. Matching flavours with an ashy finish with malty sweetness. Slick silkiness from the oats, med-high carbonation. Coffee balanced.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.473 can. Pitch black color and a small, brownish head. Aroma of coffee, burnt malts, dark chocolate, and a bit of smoke. Taste is obviously dominated by coffee, rather sweet, dark chocolate is also in the mix. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is medium long, coffee-like, a tad chocolaty. Overall not a bad beer but I never particularly liked coffee stouts; their strong flavor seems to only cover up what would-be flaws.
