3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked this up in the single bottle section at Trader Joes for a buck. Completly black pour slight off white head. faint aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Flavor dominated by smoke with a touch of coffee and chocolate. A little thin but not too thin for a stout. Good, not great. Wasnt expecting much but did beat my expectations. But well worth the price.

3rd June 2016, 12oz bottle into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip. Looked fine, black with a lasting tanned head. Over roasted oats and malts give the aroma and taste some dark chocolate and ground coffee flavours. Nothing too exciting but nothing wrong with it either.

Drank from the bottle. Smell is bitter oatmeal, malt, and leathery. Taste follows. A decently balanced, not too sweet or pungent beer. Great for the price

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.
