3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at Mr. Goodbar in Buffalo, NY. Surprised Iíd never had this before....or, at least, Iíd never rated it. This was only ok. Poured a deep dark brown. Had a little bit of a coffee feel, a little bit of chocolate but really just kinda thin. I was expecting a creamier mouthfeel from the cask but it was a little lacking. Not bad but not exceptional.

Black in color with a mocha-colored head that descipated quickly. Poor lacing. Malty notes(peanuts and chocolate). Thin texture with low carbonation. The beer taste like burnt grain. The finish is long and leaves a sticky residue in your mouth. This beer should have had a bigger body but it was just to watery for me.

The stout pours dark chestnut with a nice creamy light tan head. The aroma is light malts that are a bit smoky with notes of chocolate. The flavor is light smooth roasted malts on a delicious creamy body. It is so light and smooth it goes down very easily, awesome.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark black, no head. Chocolate aroma. Medium to full palate with slight hops and coffee. Middle is big coffee with nice full body and finishes with a slightly carbonated tongue. Doesnít have the oatmeal stout taste necessarily, and I donít quite knw why itís considered a winter beer..but itís damn good!

October 2013 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours a dark brown/black with a small tan head and oily lacing. Aroma is brewed coffee, chocolate chip cookie dough, and slightly roasty and musty. Taste is roasted coffee with a little cocoa and some bitterness at the end. A rich, balanced taste that isn't complicated. A medium, smooth mouthfeel with a medium dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nothing fancy, just a smooth, solid stout full of roasty almost burnt coffee and bittersweet chocolate, yet light enough to have another.

12 oz bottle. Black pour with a finger of brown head that quickly faded. Lacing evident down the glass. Nice coffee/cereal aroma, followed by a mild flavor filled with malts and some hints of other flavors. A little thin on the palate, and not as smooth as I was expecting for an oatmeal stout. Decent for a stout, not that great for an oatmeal stout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep burnt umber caramel color with two finger of thick eggshell foam that sticks nicely. The nose is soft and inviting with earthy oats mingling with chocolate malt and a touch of coffee and vanilla. The palate follows the nose, damn this is a great ! Soft full mouthfeel with great balance of chocolate, coffee and soft oatmeal notes that smooth out the finish with a touch of bitterness.

Pours an opaque black with a finger of light tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee with cream and some chocolate. Taste of strong brewed coffee, cocoa, some lactose, oatmeal, caramel, roastiness and some mild burnt notes. Semi creamy mouthfeel, medium body with medium carbonation. Good stout with well blended flavors.
