3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black pour with a good tan head. Aroma is heavily espresso dominated. Flavor follows suit. Great coffee flavor, but too one-dimensional and dry. Not sweet enough for an oatmeal stout and little, if any noteable oatmeal flavor.

A very sweet and milky stout with a chocolate body and thick head. The flavor is straightforward but very well put together. A great example of a sweet stout.

:Pours a Deep black color with aroma of rolled oats and malt. Taste is minor chocolate and roasted malt. Not as robust as I initially thought but a smooth mellow finish. A good bread mouthfeel, that dissipates quickly. A decent stout that I enjoyed at the brewery.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was by far one of the best sweet stouts I have ever had. Beautiful dark creamy head. Lots of roasty taste, but never overpowering. Great coffee and chocolate taste near the end. It finishes so nice and smooth, that you have to have more, because even though it is sweet, it is the perfect amount of sweet.

On tap at Heartland Union Square. A lightly sweet stout, with a little roasty/ burnt toast flavor and sugar. The menu said it was an award winner. I wonder what award it won - the average award?
