Scipio's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 13/20
Scipio (720) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2013
Pours black with a big and foamy, although short lived, light tan head. Rather potent aroma that has earthy malts, chocolate, lots of licorice, and a bit of coffee. The taste is dominated by chocolate, with undertones of licorice. The aftertaste lingers for awhile and is the same as the taste. Light in body with a thin and creamy texture. Carbonation is more soft. I like most everything that is offered here. But it is very light and there isn’t a whole lot here to really make it settle like a full beer. I really feel like it is missing the necessary punch that I’m looking for in something like this.

Black pour with white head from 12oz bottle at home. Roasty oatmeal and cocoa. aroma. Has a very sweet milky chocolate taste. Bread and malts, but really sweet. Nutty as well. Pretty good.

islay (1251) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2014
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 9-29-14. Pleasant, simple aroma features scents of chocolate and brown sugar. Pours a dark brown with an amber hue. A small amount of beige head produced by the initial pour. A large amount of short-lasting beige head in the second pour. Basic appearance. Nice taste features flavors of char, dark chocolate, oatmeal, lemon, and coffee. Light to medium body. Somewhat lively and frothy in the palate. Ordinary palate effects. Overall, this is a decent and reasonably enjoyable beer, but it does not stand out in any way.

12oz bottle, picked up from Brennan’s in Madison, Wisconsin during my stay for GTMW. Very dark brown red color. Thin ta head, that fizzes away to a thin ring. Few loose dots of lace. Good dark chocolate, oatmeal flavors. Some sweet chocolate syrup. Medium body. Kind of slick texture. Nice chewiness, and full feel for a 4.5% stout. Lighter, kind of soft carbonation. Moderate sweet taste, nice light to moderate bitter balance to it as well. Not too sweet for me, as this style can often be. Maybe the lighter gravity helps with that.

Pours a nice dark brown with tan head. Cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, and some oats on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very chewy stout. Delicious!

sawbuck (364) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Aroma of sweet chocolate, vanilla. Nice ebony black with a lighter tan head. Rich sweet roasted malt explodes nicely up front. Then chocolate, roasted coffee and vanilla flavors come through. Finishes with a nice hint of bitterness. Strong showing.

Wasn't expecting much from this, as it came in a variety pack with various craft beers, and the others were not very good. But it was a very solid oatmeal stout. I'd definitely buy/order it in the future. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
