3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a New Belgium globe glass. Dark, dark brown with a dark tan head, medium-large in size. Nose is sweet oatmeal, as if someone dumped a good amount of maple syrup on their breakfast oatmeal, but with a touch of sourness. Taste was somewhat balanced. Not bad, but lacking what I expect in a good oatmeal stout.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a rich deep umber color with a big khaki foam. Aromas are roasted malts, chocolate and wet bark mulch. The flavors follow the nose nicely with rich creamy mouthfeel that bitters out nicely in the finish.. could be a little fuller on the body but overal a solid session stout.

The bouquet is definitely sweeter than the flavor. The appearance richer than the palate. Oatmeal certainly dominates the nose. Bitterness tends to dominate everywhere else.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Deep black, thick, tan head. Rich chocolate with some coffee- not sweet. A little strong carbonation is the only downside.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep black with tannish head... Sweet roasted malt aroma... Flavor is rich, roasted malts with more of typical stout roasted mouthfeel than a smooth creamy one of a typical oatmeal stout... Decent

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown black with an inch of velvety caramel colored head. Aroma is light chocolate and mole-asses. Taste is the same with very prominent mole-asses notes like a holiday cookie, right down to the burnt notes in the finish. $2/12oz

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good amount of coffee and dark chocolate on the nose and tongue. Pours nicely. The 6% seems a bit low, or maybe it is not well hidden. Nice mellowness from the oats. Good effort.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a moderate off-white head. Nose is somewhat malty with a little bit of smoke, actually. Taste is much the same. Not the greatest...
