3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
P: Dark mahogany body with a small fast fading taupe head. Slippery lacing that slides along the glass.
S: Super bready, gingerbread, vanilla wafers, cinnamon, clove, black strap molasses, figs, dark chocolate, oats, faint bubble-mint gum and hints of burnt hair.
T/M: Taste follows the nose but brings more chocolate malted balls, molasses, and slightly smoked wood. Vivacious and medium bodied that finishes semi dry.
O: Really good beer that surprisingly comes in a six pack. Love that! The aroma is on point and the taste delivers as well. I would regularly drink this but the price is a tad steep. However, you get what you pay for. Cheers!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to glass, pitch black pour with a thin off white head. Nose is a sweet cup of coffee, that has a nice mellow nature that only oatmeal can provide. Taste is surprisingly different than I expected from the nose. Smooth oatmeal body, honey sweetness, light roasted malt finish. Looks a lot darker than it tastes.
