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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It has a decent aroma that is a mixture of coffee and roasty malts. It is a deep brown with a medium bodied, medium brown head. It has a coffee flavor with a hit of oatmeal. it is not as strong as other stouts which makes the overall flavor a bit weaker than others. Overall it’s a decent brew.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clean and dark brown with light edges and one finger of dark tan head that quickly dissipates. Nose shows some dark fruit and diacetyl with a caramelly sweetness. Flavor feels like it falls short of a stout. Get lots of fruity notes with some malty notes and burnt sugar. Kind of a weird flavor

12 oz bottle from a trip to NC. nice big head, not roasty, opaque, tart fruit, which i didn’t expect in an oatmeal stout. one was enough.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Pours a near black color with almost no head on it. Nose is a little roasty with some subtle bitter elements to it, but is very light. Taste is very slightly sweet, but the roasting comes through a bit more. All in all, a rather unremarkable stout.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, deep cola/rootbeer brown. Small, tight, light tan head. Great aroma -- dark fruit -- dates, plums-- whisky, ale, tannins. Tangy. medium roast, a little peat, almost a scotch ale. Tart fruit, well played. Medium body, satisfying. Scotch and cocoa finish. Very nice, but not quite a stout in my book. Sweet, not very bitter or roasty. On tap, Liberty Ale House, Columbia.

Yum. This is one of my favorite beers. I will drink it whenever I get chance. It is also great over vanilla ice cream.
