3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz served into a snifter glass.
A - Pours completely opaque with one finger of khaki head.
S - Roasted malts, Kahlua sweetness, vanilla, dark chocolate, tangy prunes, vanilla alcohol vapors.
T - Roasted chocolate malts, cocoa bitterness, toasted oats, creamy sweetness, molasses, hints of cordial cherries, hints of toasted prunes, the roast last long after the finish. The bitterness rounds out the sweetness on the end.
M - Super smooth feel, low carbonation, medium bodied.
Very focused flavors leaning on smooth creamy feel, roasted malt, and a balance between sweet and bitterness. Nice fruity component as well. I would by this buy the sixpack.
Serving type: bottle

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours black with a half finger of dark tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee with some tobacco and leather. Taste is coffee and dark chocolate. A little dark fermented fruit in there too. Full bodied with a thick texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, awesome. One of the best sierras ive had.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: A exemplary roasted sessionnable big oatmeal stout. Perfection in simplicity.
How: Tap at Prohibition Pig, Waterbury VT. (sold as Sierra Nevada Blackalicious, which after a few googles I found out is Sierra Nevada Snowed In Stout which ratebeer tells me is Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Oatmeal Stout)
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head.
In long: Nose is typical roasted oatmeal stout. Taste is as archetypical as it is enjoyable. Full body, fun active carbonation, nice velvety mouthfeel, very roasted without feeling burnt or ashy, a taste of fresh toasted bakery bread, bittersweet black chocolate, herbal hops, light green herbs sensation, a medium bitterness that washes away all the sweetness. Nothing original here, this is a roasted oatmeal stout, but this is Sierra Nevada and unsurprisingly it is a professional clean beer of superior quality. I could drink this all night long, this is a tasty beer that offers an array of flavors that you just cannot get tired of. Scary how it was easy to drink, I had a few glasses of it. And when I order a beer at a pub I never mention how many beer ratings I have to my waitress, I’m down to earth, I know I just can’t just go through life bragging about the number of beers I have rated, I mean, raw sex-appeal can only get you so far.

Sierra Nevada 2012 Oatmeal Stout is a black ale with a chocolate brown overtone. The thin, shiny, brown head becomes a film. The dark, roasted aroma has a touch of toffee to it. It is soft, smooth and full bodied. It leaves the mouth a little chalky. The full, dark roasted flavor is like dark chocolate. The bitterness leans toward juniper and lemon peel. It has lots of taste that’s well balanced. This stuff is just great. I used some in my black bean chili.
