3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with thin head,leaving a tan ring. Very slight spotty lace. Aromas of chocoloate,roast, mildly of dark fruit berries. Same in taste,smooth,full bodied richness. Pretty good not light or watery. The oats definatly give this 5.6%er some depth. Solid stout. Tastes bigger than it is which is a good thing.

12oz bottle 9/29/13 (Hy-Vee Cedar Rapids)-42° in English Pint-Pours black with ruby tints with a one finger tan head. Aroma of sweetness, chocolate, malt, and coffee. Taste of the same with more sweetness and chocolate. This medium to full bodied brew is not too shabby as I was expecting worse.

Not real great... No head... Light and syrup ie looking ... No big deal ...the main downside was the taste and over all drinking enjoyment period... it offered a half step or more below average oatmeal stout drinking experience...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Roasted nose. Sweet tasting stout. Lacks body and is watery on the finish. Ok easy drinking stout but lacks elite characteristics.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Brennan’s as Backroad Stout. Pours cola colored with a slightly reddish tint. Tan head leaving very fine lacing. Aroma has caramel, molasses and peat. Taste is of sweet caramel, bitter roast and faint chocolate. Quite earthy. The aroma became more and more offputting through the glass. Finishes tangy carbonated, sweet and bacterial. Bad bottle?

pours a dark brown almost black...tan full head smells of roasted malts, and dark chocolate, taste is about the same with a little earthy taste, a slight dark chocolate hangs on the tongue. I enjoy mixing this 50/50 with the amber
