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.

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.

~Mild milk chocolate aroma with light roasted nuttiness and coffee.
~Pours a very dark brown almost black with quickly disappearing brown head.
~Roasty malt flavor with coffee and dark chocolate.
~med body med C02, quick bitter roast finish.
~Enjoyable stout. Nothing in particular makes it stand out above others, Wish it was a tad bit sweeter. Maybe some caramel malts would do it justice.
