Nice sweet chocolate smell. Not much head, pretty listless appearance. Nice solid stout. Wouldn’t of thought this was an imperial though. Pretty simple with not a huge body. That being said it is very good, just fairly simple. Alcohol is barely noticeable.

This was poured into a mini snifter.
The appearance was a dark brown color with no head and no lacing.
The smell had a nice sweet milk chocolate and dark choclate with roasty coffee tones roaming around the beer.
The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to combine. Sweet gentle tones. A nice sweet rolling roasty aftertaste leads to a quick dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping to sessionable quality about it. Carbonated nicely, the oatmeal helps to balance to a decent grainy feel.
Overall, I’m quite pleased with this beer and would have it again.

Wow, what can I say! Don’t know if I have tried a better oatmeal stout yet. Has an off-black, thick appearance. Medium-heavy carbonation to bring out a frothy mocha-white head. Taste of oats, chocolate malts, hops, and all sorts of other goodies. Can’t wait to buy more.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Opaque black/brown color, bubbly beige rim head, dots and blobs of lace. Taste is chewy toasted malt that grows into the palate, adding medium hops. On the swallow the malt re-enters, becoming sweeter as it lingers in a medium finish. Recommended.

Bottle at Bierstube in Philly. Opaque brown pour with minimal head - from what started as a nearly frozen bottle. Warmed up to a nice complex dark caramel brew. Medium-thick. Liquorice. Chocolate Twizlers. Ripe figs. Brown bananas. Carob. Raisins. Nice cloudy dark full brew with notes of red brown stone fruit. Works for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown with a short tan head that fades fast to a thick rim and partial coating. Some wet lacing. Aroma is cocoa malt and oatmeal. Thick and viscous mouthfeel. Taste is cocoa/baked chocolate and oatmeal. Sweetness balanced by a backing mild bitterness and lingers a bit. Aftertaste is roasted malt and oatmeal - and a hint of bitterness. Alcohol pretty well-disguised.
