3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 Bottle into snifter glass, deep dark brown color with dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit and slight tart note. Taste brings out stronger coffee notes, some nuttiness, breadiness and cocoa. Medium body, low carbonation, creamy with roast finish. Interesting tart-leaning aroma, overall solid oatmeal stout.

Shared growler poured to snifters, displaying a black/brown hue, with a frothy layer of brownish tan head foam, and waves & thick ribbons of lacing. The nose was malty, moderate roastiness, caramel sweetness, with some interesting hints of dark fruit, and subtle port character. Medium bodied, with carbonation that was probably okay to start, but softened a bit more by transport, the taste was roasted, mocha notes, with a touch of creaminess to the mouthfeel, moderate roasted & earthy bitterness, and an altogether, sessionable nature.

Tasty sweet stout. This ones smells of armoma of nuts and roasted malts. Looks good and medium dark as a pour into a glass. Ok stout but nothing that really stands out to me and gives it that character.

Average. Aroma is roasted malt with some dark fruit notes. Taste is lots of roasted barley flavor with some faint caramel and raisin notes. Finish is a slightly smooth with very little body--would have like more body...
