3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap: Very dark with a frothy head. Texture was smooth; carbonation was mild. Rich and roasty right off the bat. Earthy, wholesome, oaty. Faint black licorice and vanilla. Pretty tasty, but a tad too sweet for me.

I had this on draft (nitro) at Maui brewing. Very smooth, aroma of coffee/chocolate, the flavor was mild, it was almost like a "session stout". At 6%, it’s very drinkable

Roasted malt aroma... Kind of your standard stout, nothing special... Rich in malts, but nothing significant, had better...

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Faint aroma; can hardly smell anything. Mostly opaque body; reddish black with a tan head. Some lace. Oatmeal stout through and through. They nailed the style. Some lactose. Bittersweet chocolate. Fibrant flavors for a nitro. Well done.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very sweet and overly dry with totally milk chocolate malt. Pours completely dark and opaque with a thin tan head. The first sip is too sweet and malty with milk chocolate, light cofffee ground and dry, robust malt. The finish is dry and mildly astringent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro at the Brewpub. Nice dark pour with nice tight bubble head and lacing. Aromas were somewhat weak but the coffee/chocolate was all there. Flavors didn’t really come through for me. A little muddled and not like the aromas. I was under impressed

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on Maui during my honeymoon! Very dark black. Head lasted for nearly 1 hour until I was able to get to this sampler. Lacing is excellent and thick. Very sweet roasty aroma, like burnt sugar. Very creamy and thick mouthfeel. Light finish, however, as this beer seems to peter out quickly.
