3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at CBC 2016 Blue session. Poured almost black with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet malt, chocolate, light coffee vanilla. The flavour is moderate sweet with a smooth roasty liqourice malt palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation. All the pleasure is up front with this beer. The aroma was awesome but it never quite delivered when I tasted it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the Stone Company Store in Pasadena. Dark brown pour with a slight tan head. Malty chocolaty nose. Dry, but lacking the mouthfeel I was expecting from an oatmeal stout. Roasted malts seemed to overpower the chocolate character in the taste. Nice though.

Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro.
How: 22 oz bottle.
Appearance: Pitch black. The brown head retains well, but eventually settled into a quarter inch cap. Spotty lacing.
Aroma: Rich aromas of double chocolate cake. Fudge sauce. Chocolate covered espresso beans.
Taste: Tastes of dark bakers cocoa, heavily roasted malts, burnt caramel, oats, molasses, coffee, a semi vegital bitterness, hint of brown sugar and a slight nip of alcohol.
Palate: full, smooth, creamy feel with fairly soft carbonation.
Overall: Very good, but not a surprise.
