2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I donít know if this was an "off" batch or what. But it has an aroma like a used ashtray. Taste is slightly better than the aroma but it is not a very good oatmeal stout IMO. I see others have rated it alot higher than me, so Iíll get another bottle later and re-evaluate then.

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.
