3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 12oz bottle, from Trader Joe’s, about $1.17 for single bottle, around $6-7 for 6-pack
Aroma: sweetness, not coffee but maybe cream
Appearance: black, somewhat clear, nice tan colored head
Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter
Palate: full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, bitter dry finish
Overall: More chocolate than coffee. Very sweet. Not a bad Oatmeal Stout. Nice body and head. Roasty and malty with some good bits of chocolate in there. Very silky and rich in flavor. Would have liked a little more aroma, but it’s a fine stout. Pretty solid Oatmeal Stout. Good value beer.

I was surprised that I like this beer as much as I did. It seemed to get everything right, great flavor, great balance, and a real smooth feel as you drink

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amiable looking old chap on the label. Pitch colored brew with a quickly-disspating light tan head. Aroma has some coffee acidity, lots of roast, some bittersweet chocolate and slight black olive notes. Sweetish, some coffee, roasted bitterness up front. Middle gets a little vacant. Acidic chickory finish, unevenly bitter aftertaste. Slightly heavy body, mouthfeel is initially slippery and then breaks a little fizzy. Fair. TJ’s, Tallahassee.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle. Licorice black pour with a thin beady khaki colored head. Aroma has some licorice accents, a touch of creosote. Solid stout flavor, a touch of licorice, some espresso, a hint of creosote in the finish. Nice, chalky mouthfeell. Pretty decent and a great price at TJ’s ($1.17).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 12 oz. bottle from TJ’s. Roasty, yeasty nose. Dark chocolate, smoky roasted malt flavor with a smooth slightly bitter finish. Light and dry rather than sweet. Not too rich or bitter with a nice malty undertone. All in all a very tasty, drinkable stout that strikes a good balance on several levels. I like the 5.2% ABV. Also a super value for the price.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a standout stout but a great value for and enjoyable glass. Good bubbly head with aromas of molasses coffee and straw. A little less distinct on the palate.
