3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was black with a half finger off white foamy head that quickly dies into the beer with some spider web lacing.
The smell had a toasted oatmeal up front with some light dark chocolate hanging around over some light roasted coffee bean.
The taste had a thick roastiness over some coffee bean and then a slight oatmeal come out.
On the palate, this sat right at a medium in body. There was a subdued carbonation running over my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good oatmeal stout to come back to if I could.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle exploded upon cracking the top and took 10-15 minutes to settle down. Coffee, chocolate, espresso, roasted nuts, and a nice hop backbone to cut the sweet. Pretty good but probably would have been much better properly carbonated.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Coffee and toasted malt dominate the aroma. The aroma is pleasant although somewhat too simple. The mouthfeel is good with acidity and malt well-balanced. The taste has strong coffee and roast flavors with some hops. Too little malt backbone for a truly good flavor.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Atlanta, Ga - Tower Beer, Wine & Spirits - 22 oz bomber. Bottle exploded upon opening (points off of overall for that) - Dark black pour - thick (too thick) and foamy off-white head that sticks around way too long. Aroma has some creosote and chocolate - nice. Flavor ha some nice espresso notes, some potting soil, a bit of bittersweet baker’s dark chocolate and a touch of licorice. Nice chalky mouthfeel. Pretty solid - just wish there was not so much carbonation on the pour - could only pour about two ounces at a time!
