3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Deep brown/black body. Frothy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate. Hint of coffee and floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/slick texture, lively carbonation. Rich and nicely balanced. It expertly avoids the saccharin sweetness of lesser made sweet stouts that are this rich.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has some killer aromas, lots of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and caramelized sugar. Taste lives up to the scent, great blend of roasted coffee beans and milk chocolate. Has a nice coating mouth feel, one of my favorite oatmeal stouts.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on-tap at Fitger’s Brewery
A. Pours a dark black, 3mm mocha head, even after 10 minutes it still had a nice 1mm thick layer on top.
S. Smells of lots of oatmeal, slight chocolate, and rich roasted grain.
T. Tastes of oatmeal, lactose, some rich coffee and a buttery soft finish.
M. Medium-thich body, mild carbonation, slightly chewy and silky wet finish.
O. A solid beer. A hearty rich beer with lots of falvor, stron oatmeal presents, but not overbearing. Well bodied and thick. A nice rounded stout, but nothing that pops and really makes you love it. But easy to drink and fills you up.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Fitgers. Strong burnt malt aroma and flavour. Coffee, quite bitter. I wouldn’t really classify this as a "sweet stout"...more like a Guinness, actually.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a medium, fluffy, beige head. Aroma is raosted malt, chocolate, and caramel. Flavor is plenty of roasted, almost burnt malt with hints of chocolate, coffee, caramel, and a bit of smokeyness. Medium body with very little carbonation. Very creamy, smooth oatmeal stout with good flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[On-tap at Fitger’s] Pours dark brown with a small light brown head that lasts a long time. Aroma is huge on deeply roasted/charred malt. Coffee, dark chocolate and almost dark cherry. Average mouthfeel, good finish. Maybe just because it was a change of pace from the other beers I had tried, but I really liked it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From growler, pours deep black with thin to no head, big big caramel, chocolate, coffee and roasted malt aroma. Taste is just as rich and mouthfeel is creamy with just a touch of carb, big coffee and chocolate blends into an oatmeal-like taste that goes into a roasted and nutty finish. Excellent stout, especially with all that taste and not too much alcohol!
