4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a dark-brown head (I’m excited already). Flavor is coffee and burnt malt. Just by the smell I know there is a huge quantity of black patent... My tongue drips in anticipation. Flavor is just as I expected huge burnt coffee, flavor is balanced by the full body and sweetness. I was expecting the mouthfeel to be a little silkier since they call this an OATMEAL stout but still REALLY DAMN GOOD!

On tap at Alembic (San Francisco). This dark brown ale poured with a beautiful tan head. The flavor is quite malty with a chalky finish, and there is a carbonated mouthfeel. This is a decent stout, although the flavor is a bit thin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(On tap) Completely black and opaque with a light brown head leaving a solid lacing. Aroma of burned malts with a smoky edge. Fairly full-bodied with fat, burned - almost tar-like - malts. Flavours of licorice, tobacco, coffee - the works! Some malty bitterness in the finish. A very rich, rewarding and complex stout. I really wouldn’t call it a Sweet Stout though. 210307

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep and dark like a stout should be. Coffee being the primary. Nice dry finish and a really good stout. If you like a dark beer, this and the porter were my favorites there.
