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...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice deep black with pillowy carmel head. Nice toasty aroma with a hint of coffee and cocoa. Flavor usability but full. Roasted grain, nicely estringent and a long finish. I really like this.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep black pour with a minimal light brown bubbly head. I smell roasted coffee and maybe some molasses, but it is simple and a tad thin. Tastes exactly the same as it smell, but it definitely is thin. Palate is more carbonated than I like, but has a nice slightly chewy feel...somewhat bitter. It’s decent, nothing more. Way too fizzy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Big roasted malts, toasted oats, dark chocolate, lighter nutty notes, and light coffee. Beautifully rich and flavorful.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours an opaque black-coffee color, with a thin beige head that disappeared faster than a 100 dollar bill in the middle of 31st Street. Nose is dark roasted coffee, malt and some toasted pumpernickel. Mouth is medium-bodied, with much of what the nose has, and the oats add smoothness. Nothing to write home about, but certainly drinkable.

Poured a deep black color with a frothy thick tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, nuts, toast, caramel, earthy, and bread. Taste is chocolate, coffee, nuts, ginger, and raisin. Has a nice and creamy, thick texture.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle pours black with a decent tan head and some lacing. Aroma is full of roasted malts, coffee, and some chocolate and vanilla. Taste is slightly sweet with a smoky finish. Body is medium with a lively mouthfeel, due to active carbonation. A very enjoyable stout which exceeded my expectations.
