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.

12oz bottle pours almost black with large fluffy coffee colored head. The aroma is full of coffee and chocolate. The taste is a smooth blend of coffee, chocolate and oats. There Is a mild bitterness on the back end but very mild. Overall a really good oatmeal stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A black body supports a fairly resilient medium khaki head of creamy to frothy texture creating dense lace with dimension off the glass
Welcoming, smooth, rich oatmeal greets the senses with a solid balancing layer of robust dark coffee and chocolate on a somewhat surprisingly full medium-heavy body with solid carbonation, very satisfying for a session

This is a very nice beer. It is very smooth but full-bodied at the same time. It went really well with our burgers. Nice hearty coffee flavors that went down a little too easy. I will definitely purchase this beer again. I look forward to drinking it again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured a super dark brown color with a one finger frothy brown head that melted back to a solid ring. Aroma has coffee, dark chocolate, and a bit of dusty oats. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation average. Flavor is a bit thin for me overall but all the flavors are there. Mild roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee bitterness, and again light oats. Very much session strength.

Bottle @ some house as part of pre-gaming festivities (yes, I’m this much of a loser). Dark brown pour with a khaki head. The nose isn’t so bad. Roast, cocoa, and some coffee. Light buttered graham cracker sweetness. Flavor is a bit sweeter than expected. Graham cracker and a bit of butterscotch. Roasted malt, cocoa, and coffee. Certainly could do worse.
