3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler/plastic jug courtesy of blutt59. Dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate, oats and roasted malt. Very nice overall. The flavor is more of the same. There is a good amount of chocolate and a hint of smoke. I also get some lactose and sugary sweetness as well as some roasted malt and oats. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really liked this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at hop city - pours pitch with a tan. Aroma is chocolate and bread. I didn’t get any of the coffee on the nose. Taste is sweet with occasional bitter notes from the hops. Finish clean if a tad dry. Overall, solid enough, but boring.

Draft at hop city Birmingham. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Not much on the nose. Didn’t get much coffee from this or a ton of evidence from the oatmeal either. Still there’s plenty of roasted malt goodness and it finishes clean. Solid but not spectacular.

(plastic milk jug thanks to blutt59) clear deep brown, wispy tan bubbles. Nose of lactose, oats, coffee, sweet, bit of agave. Taste is a bit burnt, oats, soft, acidic and a little bitter. Nearly uncarbonarted and thin. Not liking the finish at all.
