3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from trade with michaelinwa. Pours pitch black with a perfect 1cm head that fades normally. Leaves a bit of lacing too, great appearance. Aromas are sweet milk chocolate and fresh espresso. Love it, kinda smells like chocolate milk with just a hint of espresso. Taste is solid too. A bit sweeter than I normally like but the chocolate and espresso quickly take over. Nice bitterness in the finish too. Moderately thick and very creamy mouthfeel is pretty nice. Very nice stout, lots of flavor packed in at only 5.5%. If it was just a tad less sweet it would probably be my favorite non-imperial stout Iíve had.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pours a black brew with a thin tan head. Scent is chocolate, roasted malts and toffee. Taste follows with a round feel. Nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours so dark a brown its almost opaque. The head is beige and adequate. The aroma is coffee, lactose, and choco---late!. The finish is bittttter and unrelated to the flavor. Poor melding due to the separation of appearance, aroma, and flavor. The aroma even lends a sugary sweet quality... not favored. The flavor is better with a good dose of malty roastiness.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a 12 oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods Devon PA. No date. Drank from a mini snifter. Pours a semi clear dark brown. No head and no lacing. Very little aroma. What's there smells of Moxie.... And that's the way this review is going. Mouthfeel would be light for a porter, let alone an oatmeal stout. Pretty dry and watery too. Taste is of water, coffee, cola, dirt, styrofoam and something else I can't put my finger on but that doesn't belong in this beer. Wow was this poor. It was everything the description didn't say it'd be. PASS!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mariís. Pours black with some red around the edges. There is a small tan head that hangs around for awhile. The aroma has a good bit of coffee, some chocolate. The taste is sweet chocolate that flows into a mocha flavor.. and is finished with a nice hop bite. This is delicious and I canít believe it has this much flavor at 5.5%.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Black pour with a fleeting tan head. Smells faintly of espresso. Taste is creamy chocolate, nutty malt, and a bit of coffee. Also tastes a bit flat; finish is dry and abrupt.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 It is like... rich dark chocholate with hint of milk. A boozy bitter-sweet warmth not unlike amaretto. A full and balanced beer with a rather semi-sweet finish. Color is between velvet and coffee. The head is fleeting yet creamy and lacing.
