Quintessential oatmeal stout. Pours black with a beige head. Very smooth mouthfeel. Sweet on the outset, but no cloying aftertaste. Instead finishes char bitter, that typical oat bitterness. If you like oatmeal stouts, youíll like this. If not, you wonít.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Shamrocks. Served a deep brown color with a thick foamy head that faded slowly to ample lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt, bit of grain and nuts in the background. Taste is malty with semi-sweet dark chocolate, roasted malt, bit of nuts and a hint of dark fruit in the background. Subtle bitterness and a finish that is quite clean. Full body, smooth and creamy, almost silky. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer that is an easy drinker.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ GABF. Black pour with a big khaki head. Roasted malt, water, and earthy hops. Some floral hops, coffee, ash, and a hint of dry fruit. Flavor is big on the roast with some light acidic notes. A bit bland and watery. Hints of dark fruit, coffee, dark chocolate, and earth. Disappointing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a murky, dark brown black with one finger head and light lacing. Roasted malt predominant, hint of coffee. Not much chocolate. Hint of grassy hops. Moderate bitterness with a hint of sweet. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Long bitter hop finish. This is pretty good, but would hope for more full body and robust appearance.

Poured deep black, with a cardboard-colored head. Aroma is rich, roasty, and slightly chocolate. Taste is bitter chocolate with faintly sweet overtones, and a mild, bitter finish. This is sinfully silky and quite good.
