Draft @ brewpub. Black with small tan head. Coffee aroma is simple. Smooth and creamy palate is thin. Decent and on the dry side for an oatmeal stout. Just the slightest bit of oat sweetness.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at SLV Brew Co. A beautiful looking stout that is very lacking in body and mouthfeel. I was anxious to try it after having the pitch black stout with a thick head set down in front of me. Smelling some decent malt and toast aromas, I took a sip, then a draw and instantly became disappointed. There’s just not much body here. Where the rich taste? The linger after a draw? No body, no ’gusto’ to this stout.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampler at the brewery. Pours a lasting mocha head, with minimal lacing, over a dark brown (SRM 35) clear body.....nose is dark roasted malts (coffee, chocolate)........taste is heavy with coffee, chocolate, finishing with moderate hop bitterness.....mouth feel is rich, thick and creamy, carbonation low. Although slightly light, this has all of the correct characteristics. Tasting of 11/13/09.
