3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Revolution. Pours a brown color with amber highlights and a small tan head. Coffee, oats, toast, and chocolate are all present in the aroma and flavor, but the nose also has an odd gamey character to it. That really threw me off. Super light in body, with low carbonation and a thin but roasty mouthfeel. A little disappointing, though not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big notes of fresh coffee grounds and roasted barley jump out of the glass with this Oatmeal Stout. A rich and luxurious dark black pour and chestnut brown head lead to a wonderful aroma and complex flavor. Straight black coffee and bitter chocolate show in the flavor with a touch of toasted and burnt grain. A full body and dry finish seem to contradict and support one another simultaneously.
Body kind of bottoms out and the palate shows a bit much acidity.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; cola with foamy light beige head that dissipatea into lacing. Smells and tastes of dark malt with some light roast and oatmeal notes. Nice and smooth on the palate. Unoffensive, but pretty bland and forgettable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a black with a smooth, creamy looking, although a thinner tan head. Aroma contains lots of roasted malts along with some chocolate notes. Lighter overall, yet its appealing. The taste still has plenty of roasted malts and chocolate. Here we find some more, with a little bit of coffee and some nuts as well. Aftertaste is chocolate and malty. Light in body, with a creamy texture, with light carbonation. It is very smooth drinking this. This one is tasty and some easy drinking. I do with it was a little stronger.
