3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Good appearance, lacing, small tan head, black color per the standard. Aroma is good, nothing that special or different. Really roasty-toasty flavor, dark chocolate especially. Body is thinner than some, but not bad. Tastes stronger than it is, as well. Worth a try.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Itís that time of year when I really enjoy a good stout, so this is something that Iím looking forward to trying. Poured from a bottle into a tulip. Brown in color with a small khaki head. A bit lighter in color than I prefer for my stouts. Very fruity aroma with notes of raisins and dark cherries, and a solid roasted coffee scent, with a little bit of dark chocolate. So far the nose on this is great. Taste is pretty damn thin. Light chocolate, thin coffee, and a strange finish that has a beef jerky quality. Metallic in the finish as well. Iím really put off by how this tastes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from total wine. Decent straight up stout with some nice chocolatey notes. A bit of a creamy texture. Finishes a touch bittersweet. Solid offering but nothing earth shattering.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Daknole! Poured into a goblet. Deep, dark brown with a nice medium tan head that fades leaving lines of lacing. Aroma is light chocolate, a bit nutty, with a tinge of coffee.Taste is chocolate, slightly stale coffee, metallic. A bit thin. Not as smooth/full bodied as i would expect an oatmeal stout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
10/30/12. 12oz bottle from Five Points. Very deep, dark brown pour, almost black, with a 2-finger tan head that cuts in half but sticks and laces plenty. Rich aroma of coffee, chocolate, cream, and some burnt caramel. Nice roasted malt character in the flavor as well with coffee, chocolate, cream, burnt caramel, and a touch of a burnt popcorn aspect. Thereís also a sense of dark fruit and marshmallow in there. My only complaint is that itís a bit light and thin. Otherwise, itís pretty tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Liquorice, raisins, and heavy molasses on the nose. Jet black in color with almost no foam. Nice plethora of flavors including roasted coffee beans, burnt molasses, toasted oats and some subtle cocoa. Overall, this is a well done stout boasting some assertive and complex flavors. Iíd give this a B+ rating.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smoky, earthy aroma has nutty, yeasty and hoppy hints. It pours a beautiful opaque dark-chocolate brown with a fairly thick and persistent tan head that leaves some generous lacing. Sublime flavor has smoky, roast malt, coffee, nutty, earthy and toffee notes of varying prominence, quite tasty. Texture has good body and fizz - not full-bodied, but still impressive. Heartily recommended.
