Black ,kaki head, light froth, lace. Cola chocolate aroma, planty herbal and leather, some hop or yeast funk, some dark berry. Sounds complex for an oatmeal stout. Really its fairly mild though overall. Taste is some mild roast, chocolate, some herbal planty citrus, caramel. smooth dark malts. Pretty good.Fairly rich.

12 oz. bottle thanks to GrandaddyKC, thanks Brad. Nice light fluffy foam on top of the pitch black stout. Aroma is toasted oats, roasted barely and mild earth tone.
The flavor is what you expect with a nice body from the oats no doubt, the flavor of the oats does’t come through but the chewy texture is there with a mild creaminess. Mild earthy hop for bitterness. Decent stout.

A- Cocoa, chocolate, tobacco, alcohol.
A- Black color, black liquid, tan head.
T- Cocoa, bakers chocolate, roasty.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish.
O- Not bad, not great. There is a bitter lingering taste after a while that it not all that enjoyable but otherwise a decent beer. Not sure what it is with Kansas Breweries and putting bison on their Stout labels (see Tallgrass).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours with a dark body that supports a thin dark tan head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, a bit of burnt malts, some spicy black licorice and then sweet smelling blueberry jam and cherries. The taste starts with a pleasing modest richness that delivers sweet malts, some dark roasted malts, chocolate and then sweet prunes and cherry like fruity esters. It gets a tad spicy here and there with a black licorice type note. Pretty nice stuff.
