3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, nearly black, large pillowy tannish head, fairly nice lacing.   Pale sweet roasted
malt nose.   Faint apple or pear skin.   Smooth on the tongue, soft, pale roasted malts, moderate sweetness, a
touch of sweetness.   Very little bitterness, to be expected.   As it warms the apple and pear skin seem to become
more apparent.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with some soft pale fruitiness, semi-sweet, mild roasted
malts, and a touch of campfire or charred wood.   A very pale example, little hops, perhaps a bit more fruity than
most.   Not bad, but very pedestrian.   Nothing wrong about it, other than perhaps its not as big as others.
Still enjoyable for what it is.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a very minor roasted malt. Flavor is about the same. A very minimal roast malt and ends up very watery. This one should have stayed retired.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from BevMo. Deep ruby in color with minimal head. Sweet and a little roast smelling. Smell a little yeasty. Aroma reminds me of a dopplebock more than a stout. Thin bodied. Sweet with a little roast. Not very stouty. Seems much more bocky. Finish is pretty dry and bitter. Drinkable, but an otherwise boring stout.

Ok, lets just stop shitting on the likes of pyramid just because we are supposed to. I mean, shit, i agree that the typical pyramid brew is not something to write home about, but they can still occasionally do something right. This is a pretty good oatmeal stout. If you canít see that, ask yourself how it would fare in a blind rating. I wonít waste my time with my typical rating, cause no one gives a damn anyway. Just know that this beer ainít bad. So there.

Some mild dough and roasty aromas. Some darker roast flavors with a tannic finish. Some hint of oatmeal inspired creamy mouthfeel. Thin and effervescent. A medium to medium-heavy body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from the winter variety pack bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours dark dark brown to black with red highlights; has a medium collapsing beige head. Aroma consists of dough, bread, caramel, clove, licorice, coffee. Taste is a little sweet, but itís more sour (I doubt this is intentional); finishes dry and bitter. Thereís a little chocolate flavor in here. Oveall, itís not too bad, but itís pretty strange. The off-flavors arenít off-putting, theyíre just a little distracting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep black color with a thin, white head. Light aroma of roasted malt and a hint of oatmeal. Decent flavor. Smoked oatmeal with some malt as well. A little milky sense as well. Not bad but could have a lot more in this brew.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours fairly black with almost no head, just a thin ring of foam around the edges. Aroma is roasted malts, some chocolate, some anise. The taste is weird, somewhat sour, caramel malts, moderately bitter, chocolate, oats, very odd. Body is thin especially for the style, carbonation is high. This beer is all over the place, I canít believe Pyramid let this out of the brew house, this beer is a disaster.
