3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Milky silky chocolate roast. Nice flavorful beer. Smells a little burnt. Nice flavor for the ABV. I was enjoying this one night when I realized how late it was and that I had to go to bed. Left quarter of a glass in my minifridge, what the heck - would lose its carb but still be drinkable. Well it was fine several days later when I went back to it, no carb at all but still good flavor. And now my minifridge smells like it, which is kinda nice.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours black, with a very small tan head that quickly fades. Nose is cocoa and coffee, and the taste follows the nose. Very smooth, well balanced stout, with a creamy mouth feel and a nice short finish. Delicious.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a goblet on 07.30.14.
A: Cocoa, caramel, and licorice. Sweet smelling.
A: Thin tan head that recedes super quickly. Midnight black body with some red in the glass.
T: Licorice and caramel dominate. Cocoa and raisin are subtle.
P: Creamy. Bubbly on the tongue. It has a lot of carbonation.
O: This is a very good oatmeal stout. It is very bubbly but I like that in this beer. It goes down super easy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
FROM NOTES: June 28, ’12
A: Black with ebony/brown highlights. Had a short creamy head with very nice lace. A bit thin for my tastes for an Oatmeal Stout.
A: Smooth roastiness with mild chocolate flavors.
T: Has a sweet dark chocolate flavor with some mild toffee flavors. Roasty and bready yet never really coming across as bitter. Sweet finish. P: Medium bodied.
O: A nice Oatmeal Stout. While nothing earth shattering here, it’s hard not to be impressed with a beer showing this much flavor with such low alcohol. Pretty impressive really, Firestone Walker is just a ridiculously great brewery!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Armin. Thanks! Pour is a fairly dark brown, with a very light brown head that quickly fades to very little lacing. Aroma is light chocolate, lots of light malt, nothing overpowering. Taste is huge oatmeal up front, with some dry coco powder on the back. Fairly dry, if somewhat chalky, finish. Nice beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very nice aromoa. Notes of cocoa and coffee. Fairly smooth flavor, with malts, roast malt, hints of coffee and cocoa melding together. Medium body, not too heavy. Easy sipping beer. Opens up a little as it warms, complexity of coffee and cocoa notes unfurls. Fairly clean finish. Very nice drink.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma of pecans, little hop, toasted malt, and raisins. Surprisingly light and well carbonated for a oatmeal stout. Solid beer. High drinkability.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into stout glass. Looks like a stout. Not a lot of aroma - some mild notes of dark chocolate. Slightly bitter dry full bodied beer. Not as creamy a mouth feel as I hoped based on the commercial deScription. Chocolate notes. Good solid stout. Will go back to it.
