3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into Teku glass. Not nearly as hoppy as your typical 3F fare. Thin body with no real aftertaste. A bit of the smooth oatmeal comes through but not really. A decent amount of complexity for a 5.9% ABV, but for $15 this is terribly overpriced.

This is a bit of a smokey stout. Sweet and smokey to me. Very enjoyable brew but just not what I’m looking for when I buy a stout. Unique.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a beautiful black with tan head. Smoke, dark chocolate and, dark fruit on the nose. Roastiness, caramel, oat cereal on the taste. Little thin on the palate. Fantastic oatmeal stout, not quite a founders breakfast stout but pretty close IMO.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with BBGTC. Pours a jet black body producing a small dark-tanned head. Aroma of ash and leather. Hints of vanilla and sweet malts. Taste is also very sweet and loaded with vanilla. Abit over the top one might say. Oily texture and softly carbonated.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep red-hued near-black brown body with a small beige head. Nose is licorice, leather, cereals and hints of vanilla and raisins. Taste is chocolate, licorice, caramel and hints of grains, filter coffee, vanilla and raisins. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Strangely enough, this one also seems a bit oxidized; these are not the notes I’d be expecting from an oatmeal stout.

Draft at River City, Louisville KY.
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown to black.
Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, caramel, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (apricot, grapefruit), with a note of vanilla.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.

A pleasant, balanced, quaffable porter/stout. A little short of exciting, but solid.
