This buzzes with cascades of hearty, deep chocolate and earthy wheat undertones. Itís like pureed devilís food cake pumped with hops. This oatmeal stout has a sinister licorice nose and bleeds a hazy brown. One of the best Pyramid brews, no doubt.

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.

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.

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.

From bottle to wine glass. Chocolate and roast aroma. Black with a taupe head that lingers. Taste is mostly roast with slight chocolate background. Slight silkiness from the oats. Not bad.
