3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained beige head, with some lacing, over a black, brown (SRM 35) body....nose is chocolate light coffee from the roasted malts, light herbal notes from the hops....taste is slightly sweet with roasted malts tones including cocoa, chocolate, coffee, leading to a moderate hop bitterness.....mouth feel, body medium heavy, creamy, slightly oily, minimal alcohol, carbonation adds tingle and soft acid. This is a good example of the style. It is malt dominated, with nice roasted malt character, light balancing hops, and superb body. BJCP 8/3/15/5/7

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch and a half tan head after a strong pour. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, oats, coffee, and chocolate. I think the taste is just like the aroma, except that that there’s a bit of dark fruitiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy and has a good amount of carbonation. I think it’s a good Oatmeal Stout, definitely worth trying.
