3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice aromas of cocoa with a hint of roasted coffee. Ultra smooth and velvety texture adds to the appeal of the flavors of toasted walnuts and robust coffee. This beer is able to be extremely flavorful without being overpowering in any way. A very nice finish with hints of caramel finalize the complete makeup of this nice example.

A nice stout has all the flavors you would hope for. Toasty malty enjoyable in most every way. A bit thin on the tongue though.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pitch black, inky body with a light-tan creamy head that doesn’t last. Aroma of baker’s chocolate, bitter cocoa dust, licorice, creamy oatmeal, a small hint of brown sugar, & mild coffee beans. Flavor is smooth, good balance of bitter & sweet. Oatmeal, chocolate, hints of coffee, faint anise, a touch of roast & char nearing the finish. Body could be a little thicker, but overall this was pretty tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz brown bottle; Lot #721; Bottled date of August 2014..
Pours dark brown, looking black in the snifter. The light brown head has a creamy look and good retention. This has a full and very smooth mouthfeel, but with some light heat fro alcohol.
The aroma carries the usual mix of dark malts and oats,with little in the way of alcohol esters, but with a touch of spiciness (hops?). The flavor also reflects some spicy hops but is dominated by dark roasted grains. Minimal sourness. Mildly bitter. Some chocolate with only faint raisins and vague dark fruit in the flavor.

Coffee, caramel, malt, vanilla, oatmeal, light on the palate, hides abv extremely well, dry. This would be a great intro into stouts beer if you don’t like sweet. Would buy again as a delicious easy drinker
