3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Spawned Feb 2012
Pours dark, black with a quilt of residing tannish foam. Initial whiff has a substantial amount of butterscotch. After a while, I get through to olfactory senses of sweet toasty malt and hints of caramel and vanilla. Not really happy with the nose for an oatmeal stout. Flavor is malty with a good dose of oats and creamed coffee flavors. A nice full body with moderate on low carb and a slick finish. The nose on this one is dissatisfying, but the flavor and mouthfeel are nice.
Serving type: bottle

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours midnight black with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate malts and oatmeal. The taste is initially smooth and creamy and ends bitter. There’s a decent amount of dark chocolate, oatmeal, and burnt malts in here. Overall pretty tasty but a little thin for a stout.

Bottle. Pours a near-black color with very little head on it. Nose is quite roasty with just a subtle hint of bitterness, but little depth. Taste has more depth of flavor with a hint of that hoppy bitterness coming through underneath some strong roasty elements.
