3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours translucent blackish brown with a beige head. Dark chocolate, molasses and coffee aroma. Medium body. The taste has the same dark chocolate, molasses and coffee aroma flavors as the aroma, but there is just boatloads of oatmeal in here too. Dry finish.

Not bad. Pours black with tan head. Strong coffee aromas. Black licorice, coffee and chocolate on the palate. Smooth oatmeal finish. Too much carbonation up front.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black cola-like appearance. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste is dry, bitter and malty, though I detected some metallic-ness to this, too.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much head on this baby. From bottle at Biercraft on The Drive. Not much aroma either. Black in color. Not bad. A bit thin for my taste. A bit sweet on the ending. Not bad for a Saskatchewan beer, eh?

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not much on the aroma, mostly just the %. Quite smooth but the % really shows on the tounge as well. Quite thin, a bit of malt ond coffee on the tounge after. After a while it does warm up nicely, but still falls a bitshort

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted nuts, baker’s chocolate, bread and dry roast. Flavour of oatmeal, dry roast, bitter chocolate and toasted nuts. Light-bodied for a stout and quite bitter. Could use some sweeter notes to balance off the dry, bitter palate. Decent, but thin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341ml bottle pours deep black color with a thick beige head with good retention leaving some nice lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts with hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is a pleasing roasty malt bitterness with some chocolately malt sweetness and hints of coffee with a trace of hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated. This is a pretty tasty stout that is quite easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks Steve. Brown with a huge billowy tan head that settles to a nice layer in the glass, leaving lacing down its side. Some roasted oats, oatmeal, bit of chocolate that grows as it warms up, some frothed milk. Moderately high carbonation, little thin, bit bitter, becomes very dry, leaves barley and grains and some roasted malts on the palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Single bottle purchased on 06/24/2011 from Zyn Liqour in Calgary, AB. Colour: Midnight black with low white head. Nose: Certainly smells like I just sat down at breakfast with a bowl of raw oats and boiling water. Also smells like baked potato, very soft yeast, fresh dough. Taste: Light sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Softer than expected. Nice toasty highlights throughout but nothing distinct jumps out. Buttery bread. Nice creamy mouthfeel.
