Smooth consistency and nice blackish color. Has a good taste to start, mostly coffee flavor with a bit of chocolate. Finshes with a "alcohol" type taste though. Whereís the oatmeal? ;-)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, picked up from Brennanís 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.
