3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour, quickly fading off-white head with some nice lacing on the glass. Interesting aroma. Roast, brown rice (not in a bad way, reminds me of some brands of Japanese tea that have brown rice added), a little chocolate. Taste is very similar. The roast/brown rice flavors dominate, and there is a nice, sweet, drawn out finish. Mouthfeel is subpar for an oatmeal stout, but not bad. Nice beer, and relatively unique in my view.

Deep brown-black pour with soft off-white head. Fresh roast malt, light vanilla creation and brown sugar sweetness. Flavor is light roast malt/coffee and lactose cream with a bitter chocolate finish. Clean and semi-rich. Nice.

pours dark brown with a small tan head. This beer is creamy and nutty, very sweet and chocolatety, with a nice roasted and coffee tastes. The only thing lacking is there is not enough carbonation in this beer.

Starts sweet with very subtle roasted cereal, and leaves almost no after taste. Opaque black with a brown head that quickly fades away.

16oz can. Good coffee-chocolate aroma. Pours opaque black coffee brown, with sustaained with fluffy tan head. Flavor carries on the coffee chocolate, but with an earthiness to it as well. Medium to light body. Faint coffee finish, with a slight sweet note. Very smooth and drinkable. This is very useful in thet it gives you a classic stout profile, yet, is not particularly complex, heavy, or alcoholic - making it a highly drinkable beer.

One of my favorite beers. It is only available in a can in my area. I was pleasantly surprised to experience this on draft in Great Bend, KS. Sip this beer and mix it side to side in your mouth to truly experience the flavors in this frothy concoction.

Tall boy can poured into glass. Had a friend bring back some of this from KS, what a guy! Super creamy with an aroma full of chocolate and malt. Down right tasty in every sense of the phrase.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Dark brown brew, appears surprisingly bubbly, and capped with a medium-sized, light khaki head.
Smell: Mild aroma altogether. Roasted malted barley with very thin notes of block chocolate, coffee hit with a little cream. Light hint of fruitiness. Not much happening here, I’m afraid.
Taste: Begins with a nice pop of chocolate, then, some coffee. Slight creaminess. Moderate sweetness throughout. Light molasses. Very little fruitiness showing a bit of prune. Low hop character, bitterness. Malty, mildly roasty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: Fairly good. While light in the aromatics department, it was solid in flavor. A bit more carbonation than anticipated, not that I found that to be disagreeable.

Nutty expresso on the front, milk chocolate on the back-end. Just a touch too sweet after multiple drinks. Can. Smells subpar. Tastes pretty alright by comparison.
