4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very nice chocolate oatmeal stout. Doesn’t have the body or complexity of Victory Storm King or Founders Imperial Stouts. No surprise there. Very drinkable and a superior example of the "Chocolate Oatmeal Stout" breed. Lesser brews should be considered "Nevermore".

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Served at a good temperature with a nice, tan, foamy, thick, fine head that settles and a little lace. Color is an opaque black brown. Aroma is malt, roast, cocoa, trace vanilla, coffee, walnuts. Flavor’s similar to nose with very good balance betwixt the sweet, tart, and bitter. Body and carboantion are very good for style. Finish is like flavor with vanilla and a little booze coming forward. Deceptively easy drinking beer. Great for chilly willys. And I like it too!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Works for me. Produces a sensible, diminuitive head; dark brown body with obvious carbonation. The carbonation is quite noticeable in the tasting, too, though it is soft enough to be overlooked until it burns off a bit more. Good chocolate flavors, relatively controlled sweetness, though I didn’t mind that at all (sometimes finding oatmeal stouts a bit off kilter for my tastes). Poured some onto a chocolate brownie and it totally worked for me! Bottle. Drank on St. Valentine’s Day.
