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.

12oz bottle - pours opaque black with rich beige head and trace lacing. Nose is toasted malts and caramel. Flavor adds coffee/chocolate and toffee. Taste is sweet like toffee. I love this brewery more and more with very new beer I try. If it came to it, I would have this beer for breakfast.

Good type of beer for a cool spring evening. There is oatmeal permeating this beer obviously but the supporting dark roast and creamy finish complements the main notes well. Just a satisfying beer, makes me want to try more from this brewer.

Very good stout. Drank in KS. Very chocalatey. Not as creamy as I would expect based off of the description hyping up the amount of oats used.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
All dark with a small mocha head and moderate lacing. Roasted malt and semi-sweet chocolate aroma. Woodsy flavors; modest sweetness with a bit more carbonation that a typical stout. Body could have benefitted with a little more depth. Waited in vain for more hops to show up in the aftertaste. Long lasting finish.

Bottle. Pours a deep black color with a medium tan head. Nice woody, chocolate malt aroma. Roasted coffee flavor with a bit of chocolate and oats. Quite smooth, but a little on the light side. All in all a quality brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 2/27/12
Aroma: The nose is somewhat subtle, with some roasted malts, and hints of coffee and chocolate
Appearance: This one pours a brown-black color with a light brown head and medium lace
Flavor: Tastes lightly sweet, with a dry roasted coffee flavor, and a pretty amount minimal of hop bitterness
Palate: Light-medium bodied, somewhat light for the style, but not watery, with an average carbonation
This is an alright stout. It is drinkable, and works decently well. I didn’t find anything particularly wrong with it, but it isn’t particularly exciting either. It is just a solid, fairly drinkable, roasty stout.
