3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2010 12 oz. bottle- Pours black with a tan head, aroma is oats and chocolate, it smells like cocoa puffs. The flavor is roasted chocolate malt, oats, and milk. The palate is very creamy with a semi dry finish, medium to low carbonation. Overall could use a bit more carbonation, but is a decent example of the style.

Almost black with a small tan head. Cereal, oat aroma. Very light flavor with little aftertaste. You wouldn’t know you were drinking a stout by the lightness of the beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a thick brown head. Aroma is roast malt, coffee, and a little chocolate. Flavor is roast malt, light sweetness, coffee, mouthfeel is smooth yet a little thin. Not bad just a little disappointing given the aroma.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Very dark brown/near black color with a very large, creamy, billowy and creamy head that is a very dark tan. Very good retention that settles into a nice thin, bubbly layer of lace.
S - A strong amount of black, roasted coffee and dark chocolate with coffee being the stronger of the two. Roasted malt and oat also comes out pretty strong. Somewhat breakfast/coffee stout like but with a bit stronger level of roasted/charred malt.
T - Similar to the aroma with a good amount of black coffee and chocolate, with coffee being the stronger of the two. Roasted malt and oat taste is always in the background. Not overly bitter, but there is a nice bittersweet taste to it.
M - On the lighter side of medium body with a good amount of carbonation. This is the biggest problem with the beer, it is just a bit too thin and light. It has a bit of a creamy feel, but not what I would expect in an oatmeal stout.
D - Easy to drink, well balanced beer. A nice bittersweet aspect and a good amount of coffee and chocolate. The bit of oat in the background is also nice.
Notes: This is probably my favorite beer from Hub City. Pretty good oatmeal stout, although nothing outstanding, just a basic oatmeal stout. I would get it again, if the price were right, but it’s nothing that I would feel compelled to get.
