3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown to black pour with a 2 finger, creamy tan head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is roast, sweet dark caramel, toasted nuts, sweet cereal malt and chocolate syrup. Flavor is chocolate (more cocoa-like than the aroma), roast, a little char, a hint of smoke, sweet malt, caramel, light tree fruit sweetness and a hint of herbal and pine hops. Medium body, syrupy, slightly creamy entry, light, blanketing and slightly sharp carbonation and oily, slightly chalky and off dry finish. Good stuff overall.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a coffee and malt smell with a backdrop of oats

Taste- has an oatmeal coffee mix flavor, not my favorite style but not bad.
Palate- full bodied with a thick texture, has slight carbonation
Overall- Not terrible, if you are a fan of oatmeal stouts you would probably enjoy this

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown almost black with a creamy tan head. Sweet malt flavors with a dry finish. Good for what it is but it makes me crave a stronger more full bodied imperial stout.

Bottle. Pours clear dark brown, big lasting creamy light brown head and great lacing. aroma of chocolate, burnt malt, coffee. Lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, average to lively fine carbonation and a too brief too light bitter finish.

Bottle shared during the satellite Travlr 10K tasting at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Thanks to Fergus (I think...)! Pours clear brown with a creamy, beige head. Simple beer but tasty, with sugary bread, light roast, some tar, balancing bitter earth. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Light jammy berries on the finish along with notes of chocolate and understated roasted malts. Pretty good. Easygoing and tasty.

Excellent brew. If it was thicker and creamier it would be absolutely ideal! Other than that it is still great- creamy, good body, sweet, not bitter. Chocolate notes. Not really any coffee flavor here. Malty. Easy to consume.
