3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a one inch frothy brown head that slowly faded. The nose is pretty nice, a mix of sweet milk chocolate and caramel with a light roasted malt background. The flavor is fairly roasty with some burnt caramel and light hazelnut like finish. There’s a slight influence from the oatmeal, adding a touch of sweetness and a little smoothness to the body. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent Sweet Stout.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It poured a very dark mahogany color with a lumpy creamy light tan two inch head. The head lasted about a good two minutes. There was quite a bit of foamy lacing as the beer went down. The body was pitch black. The smell was mostly malty with some notes of chocolate and coffee. The taste is the same as the smell with the coffee and the chocolate. However, it seems the chocolate is a bit more subdued. The palate is medium with a moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a good stout that I would probably have again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (I guess "available exclusively on draught" was meant loosely...). Pours a very dark brown with a light head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, and chocolate. The flavor has similar notes, with an interesting touch of fruit on the finish, and a hint of coffee. Mouthfeel is a little bit thin. Nothing exciting, but a nice oatmeal stout.

(Bottle from Tully’s) Very dark cola brown with three solid fingers of tan head. Aroma of chocolate. Mouthfeel is smooth but with some detracting prickliness and wateriness. Flavor of dark and milk chocolate with hints of coffee and roast.

On draft at Flynn’s. Poured a milky black with a tan head into the tulip glass. Aroma is of bready black malts with a nice roasted nut background. Delicious and so easy, so smooth.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On Draft @ the Great Lost Bear. Pours dark brown to black with huge, frothy white head. Produced lots of lacing down the glass. The aroma is strong coffee with some light bitter chocolate. The flavor is more of the same with coffee, chocolate a good amount of roasted malts. You also get the oatmeal taste which gives it a thicker, smooth mouthfeel. I have a good feeling this is one of Geary’s better brews.
