3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Pours black, thin frothy sandy head, spotty lacing.   Sweet malty nose, slightly toasty, a little bit of milk chocolate.   Sweet oatish and dark chocolate on the tongue.   Decent malt base, toasty, well balanced with some of the roast and the sweetness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, toasted malts, chocolate, oatish, with a slight coffee tinge.   Pretty respectable, and a solid example.   Thanks for the bottle Jeff!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at GBBF 2012, at least I hope itís this version, as itís 8%... Black pour with coarse tan head. Green hops and treacle nose, initially sweet, then drying with assertive green hops, then softening again on the palate with apple and black treacle. Burnt bitter finish. Very nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle poured into snifter. This one was a disappointment. The aroma was almost like sour milk and it wasnít exactly pleasant to drink either. Seemed like it was way past itís prime and didnít stand the test of time because I think it was an older bottle.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a solid black with just the faintest of brown highlights on the edges. A vigorous pour produced a minimal khaki head that dissipated quickly. Smells of toasted malts, roasted coffee, hints of milk chocolate and steeping grains as well. Tastes of creamy chocolate up front, roasted coffee and toasted malts mid way through with a long lingering roasted bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, light carbonation and a slightly thin body. Very tasty brew. I could certainly see myself throwing a few of these back. That said I could have used a touch more body and maybe a hair more carbonation but I didnít take much off for that because it tasted so damn good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and lactose. Flavor of sweet roasted malt, chocolate malt. Pretty good oatmeal stout, easy drinking (although not very complex). I also got to try this dry hopped with Warrior hops on cask , which was also good obviously more hoppy (although I didnít love the cask effect on it - wouldíve loved to try a tap version). This one is probably a little overhyped, but itís a pretty good oatmeal stout.
