4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nearly opaque black color with a small tan head. The aroma features chocolate, mocha and spices. The flavor is similar to the aroma lots of chocolate and mocha nicely counterbalanced by spicy hops. The palate is full, smooth and creamy with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Kick ass stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice roasty flavors, oat sweetness, some malt bitterness. A pretty standard oatmeal stout but with some real oomph to it. Nice mouthfeel and texture, too.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours black with finger of tan head. Aroma of soft roast, char, some cocoa powder. Medium to full bodied, very smooth. Flavor is chocolate with traces of bourbon and rich espresso lingering on a long finish. Nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a dark brown, no sediment or floaties that I could see. Almost no head. Palate had some oatmeal creaminess but less than I expected. It had a very dark roast with quite a lot of hoppy bitterness that hit up front instead of in the aftertaste. Tasted of dark fruits, hints of sweatness and whisky (but without the alcohol). Smooth and a treat.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich and dark with clear brown around the edges. Faint light beige head that doesn’t last long. Shame. Aroma is rich and lovely. Rich dark chocolate and espresso aromas, with oak and whisky notes with an edge of smokiness. Taste was immaculate. Smokey dark chocolate and light espresso flavors, with some boozy flavors (but without the boozy warmth), and mild oak. Very smooth from the oats. Amazing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle via trade. Pours out a moderate brown color with a small white head. Aroma is lots of chocolate, some sweetened coffee, and light roast. Taste is chocolate, light sugary sweetness and a body a little thinner than I’d like for my stouts. Not bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy light brown head that fizzes away a la Coca-Cola post haste.
3.5 S: Lots of oats and dry, dusty cocoa powder. Good bit of roastiness. Super dry overall.
3.0 T: The taste is really nice, but it has one major flaw. Again this is simple with a moderate roastiness, lots of oats, and cocoa powder. The flaw, which tastes a pretty damn good beer down to an average one is that this is as dry as the nose suggests. It’s painfully dry and because of this, it comes off as quite watery.
2.0 M: Light body. Light body indeed. Way too light for the style. Never had one like this. Also, too much carbonation. Not creamy due to the body and not smooth due to the carbonation level.
2.5 D: Not impressed with this one. With some crystal malt, this would be a damn good beer as the flavors present are pleasant. However, what isn’t there is more important.
