3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into my Duck Rabbit pint glass. How much more black could this beer get? The answer is none. None more black. Creamy, thick head which was expected for an oatmeal stout. Has an aroma of caramel and maybe some fruity/earthy notes. Kind of hard for me to pin this one down. Good thicker mouthfeel to this beer. Finishes dry and roasty-toasty. Bits of molasses in the mid taste stick out to me. Overall, a pretty nice oatmeal stout. One I would pick up again. Not too Americanized.

Pours black with a crazy amount of head. That acrid oatmeal stout taste is VERY strong, and surprisingly, I love it.

Bottle. Very dark pour with a light tan head. Good density. Nice aroma and taste of sweet chocolate and lightly roasted coffee. Full palate. Really nice stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with a more thin tan head that doesn’t really last to long. Aroma is kind of smoky, with chocolate, caramel, and some coffee undertones. Taste still has a good amount of smokiness. Mostly chocolate here with a nice balance of coffee. Aftertaste is actually must more coffee and lingers for awhile. Medium bodied with a slick, slightly sticky texture. This is a pretty good stout with easy drinkability.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is sweet bread, chocolate and a hint of earthiness. The flavor is roasted malts, chocolate and a tart/mildly bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of chocolate and smoke. Looks opaque black except under intense light where it shows a beautiful ruby tinge. Surprisingly thin dark tan head for an oatmeal stout. Surprisingly thin body too. Lots of dark, milk and bittersweet chocolate though along with roasted smokiness. A bit of a coffee character too. Leaves chocolate in the aftertaste and bitterness on the tongue. Not what I’m used to in oatmeal stouts. Tried it with a Reese’s cup and... not good. Too much charred smoke flavor. However, overall a decent beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black, with an average, short lived, chocolate milk colored head. Aroma of molasses, chocolate, raisins, and oatmeal. Taste is mostly molasses and raisin; sweet, with a mild coffee-like bitterness. Medium bodied, syrupy, smooth, and ever so slightly dry. Decent, but kind of off balance and muddy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours opaque black with small light brown head that dissapates quickly. Little lacing, medium/thick body, silky texture, medium/low carbonation, and wonderful roast aroma. Taste is roasted malt, some chocolate, some lactose, hint of coffee, and light bitter finish. Better than I expected.
