3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Pours dark and beautiful with a bubbly tan head. Smells great too, with notes of chocolate, lactose, charcoal, coffee, and roasty malt. Unfortunately, the taste doesnít back up the smell. There just isnít much there--some roast, a little smoke, and a bitter coffee taste that felt off. Itís a little thinner on the mouth than Iíd like too. Itís easy drinking, but it was a total letdown after smelling it.

Aroma starts out with grain bitterness. the beer goes down very smooth. Not much mouth feel to this beer.
This is NOT a sipping beer. Take it by the gulp and you will love it! Very light beer.

Have had this both on tap and from the bottle. Nice, roasted flavor. Lots of roasted malt and some sweet, dark fruit in coffee. Kind of thin, but still good.

This one is interesting. Reminds me of Deschutes Black Butte Porter. Crystal malt. Some poopy-ness. Not bad. Takes some getting used to.

Just had this one on tap and my first Oatmeal Stout. Did not taste any oatmeal at all but definitely a roasty flavor. Goes down smooth and does smell very nice. I was expecting something heavier but was a nice, first Oatmeal Stout impression.

A little less lively than the Breckenridge oatmeal stout. Pitch black in color with a dark chocalate/coffee tinge. Off white quickly disappearing head. Had at Old Chicago, Eagan, MN.
