3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Terminal. Poured medium-deep cola brown with a ring of off-white head. The aroma picked up lots of sweet and slightly darker chocolates paired with vanilla and rolled oats.. sweet and welcoming. The flavor found semi-sweet chocolate all the way through.. light cocoa bitterness and related sourness on the edges.. bittersweet, roasty finish. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, with increasing bitterness as it progressed.. moderate carbonation.. decent feel and flow.. I’d gladly have another.

Pours dark brown with a thin light tan head that leaves lace on the glass. Aroma is burnt and roasty with a touch of ethanol. Flavor is coffee with a hint of sweetness like dark chocolate. Toasty and bready, too. Dry chocolate finish with lots of chocolate. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated with slight stinging and a medium body. Overall, a nice stout with lots chocolate character.

Taste is a nice full-bodied oatmeal chocolate stout. Lots of chocolate and malt goodness. Mouth is full and delicious and creamy. Overall, an excellent brew.
