Bottle into an English pint,ruby in color small rapidly diminishing light brown head that lacked much lacing at all.Malt aroma was average with notes of chocolate and cola. Medium mouth but a bit thin and lively for an oatmeal stout. Not a bad session stout.

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.
