3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap at Tap House. Almost-black color, but still clear around the edges. Good, even lace. Lighter body, good smooth lighter carbonation. Easy-drinking. Nice toasty malts, light roast, good hearty oatmeal, light amount of more darker chocolate. Nice sweet taste, but not too sweet. Still a nice bitterness. Good, long oaty lightly chocolatey toasty aftertaste, especially for the lighter ABV. Hint of smoke in the finish, which I really enjoy. Doesnít have a thick, chewy body like some other oatmeal stouts have, but itís still a great, drinkable oatmeal stout.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and a good lacing. The balanced aroma was brown malt and roasted malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The good flavor contained notes of mildly vinous brown malt dark malt hops malt and bread dough. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown in color with a head that gathers around the edges. The aroma is dulled a bit, but I can sense some roasted barley, oats, and chocalate malt. Very smooth and creamy with a short finish. Dry roasted barley flavor balanced by dark chocolate and touch of espresso. Dry finish. Nice, granted Iím finding it hard to drink stouts on 90 degree summer days.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice, but light. More like a Baltic Porter to me than a sweet stout. I didnít get a lot of those sweet, full milk sugar notes (maltose, lactose, etc) that I associate with this style. Way less chocolate-milk-y than I thought. However, the beer was quite roasty, light and dry. I liked it, it just wasnít what I was expecting and frankly not as advertised. Body was a red-black, head was decent, aroma was very faint, and flavor as described above.
Not bad, just not terrific. I had this on-site at GLBC in Cleveland.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2010 Growler brought back by BeerBelcher. Darkest brown pour with a thick beige head. Creamy and roasty malt aroma with a bit of metal and notes of chocolate. Flavor is also creamy and roasty malt with a chocolate finish. Not bad, but doesnít live up to their other stouts in terms of body and full flavor.

"A stout that drinks much bigger than itís abv implies, I enjoyed an imperial pint at the brewpub on a sunny winter afternoon. Roasted malt aroma coupled with mild chocolate. Jet black pour with a huge, creamy head and very nice lacing. Filling and hearty, the body is malty, sweet and creamy. Lots of chocolate and burnt malt flavors with a big nuttiness and very mild hop presence. Close to Youngís Double Chocolate Stout all around, a great pub only offering."

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler, poured a dark brown, bordering black with a thin deep tan head. Roasted grain aromas, some chocolate and lots of coffee. Up front roasted barley flavor, that is very pleasant, followed by a very oat-ey aftertaste. The oats give it a nice slick mouthfeel, but overall is a fairly restrainted beer, good, but forgettable.
