3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a jet black with an almost nonexistent off-white head. Nose is somewhat weak - sweet with some lighter malts and black cherries. Taste is smooth and sweet. Very drinkable but a bit one-note compared to other oatmeal stouts. The finish is medium-length, sweet, and fruity. If there was such a thing as a cherry and malt pie, I think it would taste like this. Overall a good, if simple, beer. Would be nice to have after a meal.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2010 Roasted chocolate malt abounds. Thereís excellent sweetness and some floral notes that may be the appearance of some hops. Chocolatey, roasty and sweet, the beer combines these elements excellently. Creamy feel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a tall mocha head that has great retention and leavs sparse lacing. Aroma is roast, oatmeal cookies, dark chocolate, stale coffee, caramel and toffee, maybe a little too much butter in that toffee. Flavor is roast, toasty oatmeal granola, light coffee, chocolate, herbal hops, and sweet, buttery toffee. Finish is roast, a little char, day old coffee and a roiasty, char, toffee fade. Good stuff but the toffee notes are a bit much for me to call it great.
