3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark burgundy; thin but creamy-looking head; fruity aroma (cherry, raisin) w/ touch of roast. The oatmeal is immediately evident in the creamy body, though a soft carbonation also contributes. Oaty, fruity (cherry), lightly roasty flavour. Fairly sweet, a little bit fatty in the finish (typical oatmeal characteristic). Very drinkable - a cross between an old-school porter and an oatmeal stout.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark amber brown with not much head. Aroma is "celery". Not quite medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is "celery" with some mild toasted malt. It’s not offensive, but it’s not all that strong anything. Pleasant. Does leave some burnt bitter aspects in the mouth. If there’s chocolate, it’s low key.
