2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ 1702. Opaque, brown-black pour with a short, persistent beige head leaving geographic lace. Nose is fairly neutral as stouts go - maybe some roasted malt. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Baking chocolate, toffee and some dark roast malt. Finish is shortish. I look for more and rounder body from an oatmeal stout, maybe less roastiness.

Not much head, disappears fast, no lacing. Tastes of roasted malts and maybe burnt coffee. Nothing here to pull me away from St-Ambroise

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I think I’ve been spoiled by st. a oatmeal. Smooth roast, light or faint medium choc, fake grape hides, mellow nose. Mellow taste as well. Soft roast, weak bitterness that gains on the after taste, lacks the underlying smoothness I prefer. A decent beer that I just ended up drinking - guess that says something good. Tenaya bottle write-ups really suck.

(Much appreciation to Ken for providing the bomber.) if you like chocolate chip cookies, and who doesn’t, you’ll like this beer. Roasted malts and chocolate dominate the nose. Pours as black as chocolate chip with a thin tan head and no lacing. Rosted malts, chocolate, coco, cola, and oats greet the pallet. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a very tasty beer that is easy to drink and enjoy…also, you don’t have to clean up all those messy cookie crumbs.

Slightly sour, roasty character, some dark fruit. Nothing exceptional, just a standard stout.

Nose has nice roast smell but not too strong. Thick black colour with a thin layer of caramel coloured foam. Starts a bit harsh with coffee and cocoa flavours with a hint of burnt. Burnt flavour turns to strong coffee in the finish.

Surprisingly fizzy for a stout. Good. But the flavors are just too subdued.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at Albertsons in Vegas. Pours a dark brown colour with a beige fizzy head, still having some decent retention, but not much lace. Roasted malt aromas with chocolate and coffee notes. Light vanilla eventually come out. Smooth mouthfeel, but not as heavy as expected. This one has a nice amount of hop for the style, giving very well-blended bitterness. Burnt malts, molasses, mild dark fruit and hints of chocolate. Not as sweet as most oatmeal stouts, but nicely balanced overall.
