3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Pours black with ruby edges and a creamy tan head. It has a roasty aroma with hints of caramel and chocolate and maybe some nuts. The flavor is smooth and roasty, with a good dose of sweet chocolate and a hint of toast from time to time. An assertive oatmeal character really helps bring it together, too. The finish is slightly bitter, and the aftertaste is ashy and a bit roasty. I’m impressed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was a good beer. One of the smoothest beers I have ever had. Very smokey flavor, which I’m usually not partial too, but I would have again just to experience the smoothness and creaminess.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I thoujght this was an excellent oatmeal stout. rich toffee mocha aromas mixed with chocolates and malts. Huge espresso nose. Flavor matched the aroma - big espresso, roasted, chocolate flavors. Good mouthfeel - thankfully not overcarbonated like the brown ale. While not as good as farmer john’s oatmeal stout, this is a very good outmeal stout - certainly the best i’ve had south of the mason-dixon line!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Jack of the Wood. This is an Oatmeal stout. A black beer with a good brown long lasting head. Palate is smooth with a thick mouth feel. Mediocre, but the best of the Green Man Ales.
