3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark black color with an enormous frothy and foamy dark brown head that left great lacing. The aroma was bitter with notes of port wine, chocolate syrup, coffee, wood, roasty malts and hints of anise, vanilla and grass. The flavor was cocoa, toasty malts, malted milk, anise and a hint of port wine. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied and creamy. Interesting.

Damn this is good and I’ll tell you why. I love dark fruit flavors. Big time prune flavor. Very very strong flavors of chocolate, caramel and coffee. super duper tasty!. A hair too much carbonation. Bitter aftertaste that lingers. Smoke and peat. When I drink this beer I am transported to England.

Very nice solid oatmeal stout. Hits all the key points as well as has a little surprising heat to it!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/10/12
Aroma: The nose is fairly subtle, roasted coffee and chocolate malts, and a little toast
Appearance: This beer pours a dark brown-black color without much head or lace
Flavor: The taste is light-medium sweet, with a good amount of roasted flavor, and a mild bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, though it leans light for the style, with a soft carbonation, and a mild dryness
This one was another solid one from the beer camp series, but it wasn’t a top of style example for me. Still though, this is a good one, and definitely worth trying.
