2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Another disappointing stout. Been drinking imperials lately so maybe I just don’t remember what a normal stout should taste like...but I’m pretty sure it’s not quite like this.

Real nice find by Linda. Now this seems like a classic sweet stout to me. Nice bursting full nose. Sweet and oily then a dry finish. Surprised it was 6.5.

Popurs pitch black with a huge sticky off-white head thats got plenty of legs. Very creamy mouthfeel. Nice mix of molasses, aker’s chocolate, and roasted malt. Long mellow roasty finish. Comfort beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, caramel, roasted grain, Oreo cookie), with a note of vanilla.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
This is a fairly sweet rendition, but it’s still balanced enough in the finish to drink a whole bottle, and the aroma is certainly pleasant (mostly usual suspects for this sorta thing, but enough diversity and richness to be enticing). A decent brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle with nice cap of tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma of big earthy soy, nice roasty back end. Taste is roasty dark malt with big earthy soy notes. Meh.

Love this full flavored light bodied stout. Very sessionable. The mix of chocolate and coffee is very well balanced. Nice thick tan head followed by a beautiful laced empty pint glass

This is a beautiful oatmeal stout. Very light in body so can be drank all year long but has a great chocolate and coffee after taste

Dark pour, light tan head. Nice chocolate, roast character, even some nuttiness that is very well balanced with a subtle bitterness. Very drinkable, and keeps you coming back for another.
