Bronze/brown in color with a small white head.Nutty and chocolate flavors, more of a brown ale than a stout,this company really baffles me how they are still in business.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear brown color with a big bubbled head. Sweet smelling beer with a ringwood taste. Very light and watery. I'm surprised that other people have rated this so highly.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a thin dark black with a thick lightly lacing tan head. Rich milk chocolate oatmeal aroma with coffee undertones. Body starts thin and dull with a light mix of sweet and sour but has a pleasant long lasting chocolatey grainy finish. A novel idea for a beer, but it could've been done better.

Bottle: Dark roast coffee and cocoa nose. Nice reddish dark brown color. Starts with a chocolate malt flavor, but lacks body overall. Thin dryish finish. Third try from these guys and I have to say don't bother.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very dark brown. Plain chocolate and alcohol aroma. Raosted malt and chocolate that don't last and then nothing but water.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark reddish brown, with very little head, even in the pour. Nearly black. Aroma is wonderful. Toasty chocolate, roasted malts and a bit of black coffee. Flavor is rich and very smooth. Bittersweet chocolate and black coffee. Body is medium, with mild carbonation and a great smooth mouthfeel. A decent oatmeal stout flavor, with a rich chocolatey flavor. Finish is moderately dry. I'm happy with it, and I'll get it again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out to a jet black in the glass with no head. Very little carbonation to near flat. Aroma is that of light chocolate and coffee. Taste is good, but thin. I usually expect loads of flavor with an oatmeal stout and this one being oatmeal/chocolate is a little light.
