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

Great beer. One of my favorite oatmeal stouts. Dark black color, full bodied. Hints of chocolate and coffee. Great beer for coffee lovers.

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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured black with a thin mocha head. Very little aroma and the taste was heavy in the roasted coffee department. Light fizz made this a very smooth and refreshing stout.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Another winter seasonal I'm trying to drink way too late. I get the idea... Roasty, coffee and at one time less fizz/more body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great stout pour - nearly black with a thin mocha head. Aroma is a slightly faint for the style. The taste is malty with a roasty undertone. It’s not bad but a little dry on the finish. It’s solid but nothing makes this outstanding.
