3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark black body, brown head, not much retention, some lacing. Initially a hit of roasted malts, then some lactose and a touch of dried fruit. Taste is semi-sweet, milk chocolate, a touch of burnt malts. Thinnish palate. Could be more pronounced overall, but not bad.

Old rating. Deep brown pour. Roasty malts, chocolate, coffee, maybe some dark fruits - a little sweet and chewy. Full bodied. Pretty good.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown color with a slim glazing of off-white foamy head. Barely any lacing but what there is slides down.
The smell had a rich sweet chocolate to roasty coffee, decadent.
The taste was rich and subtly sweet smooth chocolate. Light vanilla adds to balance and leaves a slight sticky sweet aftertaste leading into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability to sipping quality about it. It’s got a good thickness running in and out along my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good oatmeal stout ranging on the sweet side. Makes for a nice night cap on a chilly Spring night.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle purchased as part of a mix a six at K-7 Liquors in Shawnee, Kansas. I believe 4244 is stamped on the neck, though it is a little unclear. The pour is an opaque brown black with a solid one inch tan head. The aroma is roast along with nutty malt. The taste is roast, slightly char malt up front, then moving into an earthy mineral in the back. Some nutty caramel light sweetness comes out as the beer warms. Nice balance to flavors. The palate is medium to light bodied, active carbonation and a dry mineral finish. Tasty beer.

Bottle pours black and tan head. Sweet aroma, some roast and cocoa... dreamy. Rich, some burnt malt and roast but sweet malt flavor starts this off. Palate is full and coats your tongue. Its almost too big for its britches.
