3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster. Looks good; a fairly opaque dark brownish black with light beige lacing. Smells solid; dark malt, coffee, roast, and a bit of dark chocolate. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Taster on tap at the brewery. Black color. Good thin light brown head, leaves good lace. Nice bigger earthy bitter hop character, I like that. Bigger coffee, good roast malt aromas. Dark chocolate. Good longer aftertaste, big flavor for the ABV. Very roasty, good bitterness. Medium to bigger body, smooth, lighter carbonation, good chewiness. This is a fantastic oatmeal stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at the brewery - Pours near black with a tan head and has an aroma of roast malt, coffee, and smoke. Not sure why I’m thinking smoked as it’s not a smoked beer, but that’s alright. It has a good roast malt and coffee flavor, a full body, and dark roast malt that lingers on the palate. Very well done.

Had this as a part of a flight tasting. This was a great stout. High in alcohol with a robust body. A light coffee flavor with more dominate roasted malts, caramel, and dark chocolate. A bit of spice which may have lead to my slight teriyaki flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Growler from RapeBeer- thanks a ton, Nico! Very generous. Pours a deep, opaque, basically black color with a bit of tan head that quickly dissipates into a ring with an island of thin film. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, nuts, toast, tobacco, and a little fudge. Flavor is mostly the same- starts and finishes with coffee, oatmeal, earth, tobacco, nuts, toast, and dark chocolate. Light-medium bodied, with a roasty mouthfeel and low to moderate carbonation. Good, roasty oatmeal stout.
