2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Date unknown. Pours jet black with thin tan head. Aroma is a bit of coffee, some floral notes. I pick up some acidity in the flavor (orange?) and some biscuit/bready notes as well. Oatmeal adds nice depth though itís drier and more bitter than a traditional sweet stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark black color with roasted aroma of hops. Chocolate oatmeal taste with a clean aftertaste. A smooth flavorful beer that looks ominous but is easy drinking. Dry on the palate after the swallow but rich oatmeal flavor left over.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Opaque chestnut body with a tall and dense darker tan head on top with great retention.
Aroma: Very weak aroma with a subtle fruit leaning bias. Hints of chocolate are noticed with a dash of caramel.
Taste: The flavor is mildly sweet with a dash of roast, a dash of smoke, a dash of caramel and a dash of chocolate. A little of everything but nothing is prominent.
Palate: Creamy and full-bodied.
Overall: Really unimpressive. Itís not that itís a bad beer, itís that it lacks focus. Thereís a lot of subtle flavors, but nothing that stands out. Everything sort of gets lost.

Nice beer taste and smell is just like spent grain. Dark head that fades but takes a while.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is roasted malt and cereal with no hop and no esters. The appearance is black and mostly opaque with a light tan tall head with moderate retention. The flavor is very Rosi with oatmeal and cereal. The roasting this follows through and comes out a little burnt. The mouth feel is very creamy due to the oatmeal and style with low carbonation. Overall it's nice and smooth creamy roasted beer with a slightly unpleasant Burnt aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is very coffee-like with a lot of roasted malts. Taste follows the nose. Not as smooth or silky as I usually expect from an oatmeal stout. Not bad, but Iíve had better.
