3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark, almost completely black and opaque. Good head that dissipated and left a thin film on top. Lacing that creeps back down the glass. Smells of slightly sweet bitter roasted malts with a touch of coffee. Tastes much like the smell, but with some dark chocolate character that adds nicely to the dark roasted malts, coffee, minimal hops. Itís sweet, although not especially so for the style. This adds a nice dimension as itís a bit different than what I expected. Itís a very flavorful beer. Feels quite thick and full bodied going in, but slightly watery when you swallow. Slightly slick on the tongue, with a very pleasant lingering sweet aftertaste. Very nice and highly drinkable. The moderate ABV makes it easy to drink while the delicious but not overpowering flavor makes me want to have this one again. Value: 6.85 for four 16 oz cans. A good deal.

Bottle. Drinkable, but a tad too sweet. I was tired of it before I finished my first glass. This is the beer for soda drinkers or for those afraid of stouts.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: extremely rich and chocolatey and nutty; pretty nice; Appearance: pitch black with thin white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: follows nose closely and is much better than usual cream stout; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: quite good. Might be a cream stout I would get again.

Can. Pretty sure I have tasted a beer like this before but this is a solid showing. Smooth on the palate. A little acidic but not overbearing. Lighter. Sort of flavorless with the lactose dominating. Not bad but not sure I could drink a bunch of these.

Bottled. Pours black with a medium brown head. Smells of coffee, oatmeal and chocolate. Flavors of burnt/toasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Not as sweet as i was expecting. Finished strong with a lingering taste of mocha.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark pour with a medium sized tan head. Smell is coffee, chocolate, and maybe a little bit of vanilla and some brown sugar? molasses. Smooth and easy drinking stout with just the right amount of sweetness, not overbearing. Heavy lacing on my glass throughout the beer. Glad to have this stout around Iowa.

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.
