3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: pours a dark definitive brown. One finger loose toasted wheat head takes it’s time falling down to a thick sheet of the same. Spotty lacing.
S: toasty, smells of pine bark, evident bitterness on the nose here for me. hints of coffee, cocoa beans. Not bad, not what I had expected either. nice. Slightest hint of graham and cinnamon as it warms.
T: More coffee than anticipated, but def less than an east coast coffee beer. Bitter in the back. Not very complex. Plenty of oats, toasty oats.
M: Heavy with medium to high carb. Dry and cloying at the same time. Wish the carb was a bit lower and the beer was smoothed out more.
O: Decent beer, but not a go to for stouts, or oatmeal stouts. Uncertain of the greatness this beer has acheived provided the beer is quite simple.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Rogue Bar SF. Pours a sexy black with a tanned head. The aromas showcase a complex blend of dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and alcohol. Oats become more evident in the taste. Like your morning porridge in coffee and chocolate. Pretty good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Looks really nice, huge tan head, black body. Aroma is not strong. Tastes like an oatmeal stout, dark malt, little roasty, Cascade hops make it a little tangy. Overall, it was a nice beer, but not what I look for in a stout. Good, but I don't get the hype around it.

500ml. Pours a nice dark black with a three inch dark tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, smoke, oat, coffee, some fruit and some hops. Similar malt forward aroma. Has a solid body with a dry and bitter finish. Very easy to drink, enjoyable and a solid beer all around. A beer well worth having again, especially at its price point ($6 in my area).
