First chance for me to try an offering from this brewer, and as a stout lover I give this a solid thumbs up. Espresso colored with thin tan head, aroma not prominent. Cocoa overtones, bitter but not unpleasant finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Pours a dark brown almost black with a small tan head. Aroma consists of coffee, chocolate, grain, and caramel. Taste is light on the chocolate flavor and focuses more on the oats used. Big bodied beer with loads of carbonation and a nice sticky mouth feel. Good stuff

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap poured into a shaker. The aroma is fresh baked oatmeal, raisin, and chocolate chip cookies. It pours an opaque black brown with an espresso colored head. The head reduces to a medium thick, creamy ring with an okay surface dusting, and has a runny sheet lace. The taste is medium light bitter and medium sweet. There’s lots of small bubble, prickly carbonation in this slick, medium-full bodied beer. The finish is mostly chocolate with some oatmeal raisin cookie. The aftertaste has moderate staying power with notes of roasted grains.

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is chocolate but not picking much else up. Appearance is dark brown almost black with a small light tan head. Taste reminds me of a Guiness but much sweeter and more flavorful. Palate is a bit thin but ok. Overall pretty good.
