3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 The flavors that stand out to me with this brew are alcohol and chocolate. The combination of those flavors I find pleasant. The mouth feel is thinner than I like a stout, but with a effervecient carbonation that is really enjoyable. I find a little banana in the finish as well. Overall nice beer that I would have no problem reaching for again. Orig rate 1/29/13...2.9. Aroma of coffee. Sips roasty with big coffee. Nice medium csrbonation. Very smooth and Sessionable with little alc taste even when served cold. Flavors of bittersweet chocolate in the finish. Body is medium, but it is a enjoyable texture, not too thin as I thought before.

Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Strong aroma of alcohol, sweet malt sugars. Pours black, with a moderate head. Taste is very good, not overpowering or thick on the tongue.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is really good. Dark Chocos, roasted malts with a hint of coffee. Taste pretty smooth and delivers quite a straightforward stout experience, with all those parameters we love in a good stout. But, as the ABV is pretty low, it dies really fast in the aftertaste. All in all a good stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasting glass draft @ Hoppy Loft. Blackish dark brown with a big creamy mocha head. Nose is weird powdery mocha, ashy candy, cheap chocolate & lactose sweet. Taste is very powdery & strongly herbal mocha, grainy, lactose, instant coffee, sugar, cheap instant chocolate milk & chicory coffee,… Hugely powdery, herbal & chicory coffee body and taste. Not bad it feels like a stout made with instant & chicory coffee or something akin to that extent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle. Pours an opaque black with a large, frothy, long lasting, beige head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Sweet flavour of dark chocolate and roasted malt with a slightly acidic, bitter coffee finish. Medium body with a creamy, smooth texture (coming from the oatmeal) and soft carbonation. A very nice stout.

Great beer. Aromas of chocolate and vanilla. Full mouthfeel. Some hoppiness would make it perfect.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is used motor oil black with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and coffee with some cocoa. The taste is coffee and malt, a nice bitter flavor. An excellent stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6.3%ABV. Oatmeal Stout.
Tapped out a sinous black-brown. 38ºSRM.
Nose has aromas of stone fruit and light smoke. Some fruity aromas suggesting plums and honeyed dates.
Mouthfeel is sudsy. There is some lightness to it which is then whisked away to a fruity sourness, which levels off to predictable flavors of burnt wheat toast, charcoal and then transitioning into the more hefty fullness of warm oatmeal maybe with a hint of brown sugar.
Finish is ume and dry-feeling.

Nice stout. Almost a cross between porter stout. Better at warmer temp vs cold
