Pours thick and dark, good head and good lacing. Excellent Stout, sweet strong roast. Some chocolate, some slighter coffee, tastes concentrated. Most excellent proud bold flavor. A great Imperial stout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a thin head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is dark roasted grain, molasses, hint of anise. Flavor is a beautifully balanced blend of burnt bitterness and malty sweetness. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Toffee aftertaste. Very nice!

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark as night poor with a deep red and brown head that lingers. Some protein in the head gives it lasting retention. Smells if rich chocolate and roasted nut. Taste is much the same as the smell but the real jewel is the mouthfeel that accompanies the taste. Creamy but not like a milk stout, more something of itís own kind. Whatever it is, it makes you want to drink more and more. Even with itís strong flavors it is drinkable and desireable. One of those beers that I canít get enough of.

Good Texas brew! Dark. Laces glass with foam. Smooth head. Chocolate notes. Deep. A bit simplistic but nonetheless tasty. Not as deep as an Imperial Stout but very drinkable. Would have liked to have seen it taken further though.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, bakers cocoa, light vanilla and a hint of coffee. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, smoke and light vanilla with a smooth lingering roasty smokey finish.

The chocolate and oatmeal really do wonders in here. Itís got the standard stout flavors -- chocolate, molasses, some dark roasted malts / coffee, but the flavor is really warm. The chocolate really comes through, and it tastes sweeter because of the warmth of the flavors. Nice one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle in an English pint (bottle didnít say it was an Imperial stout). Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, oats, a nice chocolate/coffee note, and some light dough and light hops. Flavor the same with the dark malts and oats dominating this one. Average texture. Not a bad beer, but not the best of its style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mostly black with a little bit of ruby brown shining through the edges. Thick mocha head with some lacing. Lots of chocolate in aroma. Some coffee and roastiness as well. Somewhat boozy. Thick mouthfeel. Chocolate leads the flavor as well. Some nuttiness and roastiness. Sweet finish. ---Rated via iPhone

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
100% opaque, not much of itís thick head appears. The nose is richly roasted. In the mouth it is incredibly thick and heavy without becoming too cloying. The roast reappears as a heavy bitterness and a hint of licorice. There is plenty of buttery toffee sweetness in there too which pairs well with the thickness of the beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Convict Hill Oatmeal Stout has a fairly thin, tan head and a very dark brown appearance, with red highlights under light. A thin lacing sheen is left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, dark-roasted barley malt, cream, coffee, and chocolate. The flavor is of all those, plus some astringency, coal, and a mellow hop bitterness across the sip. Mouthfeel is pretty heavy and viscous, and Convict Hill Oatmeal Stout finishes dry, sweet, and wonderful. This is a delicious beer, and the drinker just does not pick up the 8% abv. Overall, I rate it most excellent. RJT
