3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 4/21/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Frugal MacDoogal. Pours nearly black with an average tan head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is sweet creamy malt with plenty of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of vanilla. The flavor is dark with a bit of a nutty note, along with the same lightly sweet creamy vanilla, dark chocolate, and coffee. The body is full and creamy with average carbonation and a long creamy coffee and dark chocolate finish.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
It looks and tastes like soda pop. I was really anticipating something extraordinary based on the reviews, so perhaps that build up has left me flatter than this stout. Damn.

4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Semi-opaque dark pour with a lightly colored khaki head. The aroma is oddly fruity with an equally odd absence of roast. Oooh that’s nice and different. The flavor is complex with some spice, fruit, licorice, floral and a delicate bitterness inside of a creamy textured body. Maybe its because I just had a different stout minutes before, but I cannot detect more than a very small hint of roasted barley. This almost defies the simple category of sweet or oatmeal stout. Much more complex than just roast & coffee or chocolate. This is special. I resist giving this 20 out of 20 but why not, this is as good & 3 dimensional as any trappiste ale.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
An excelent oatmeal stout, not as bitter as many stouts, but also not as dark a flavour. It has a lighter, nutter flavour.
