2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks like an ok stout. Has no aroma. The flavor is very very watered with a hint of cherry in the finish. Who knew a stout could be so far off the mark?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Allen location. The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma is reminiscent of cocoa and not too much else. Overall, it is a little faint and the beer doesn’t really smell like much. The flavor has a lot of heavily roasted malt, as well as some cocoa and some oats. Creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown black pour with a frothy tan head and lace. Roasted malt aroma with a hinto coffee. Flavor is sweet toasted malt, coffee, and cough syrup. A fizzy beer with a good malt bitter. Not bad but not a big fan.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Two Rows in Allen.
Pours black with tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, coffee, and faint dark fruit, well balanced. Flavor is nice, semi sweet baking chocolate and coffee, raison, nothing over powering, nice fresh taste. Mouth feel wasn’t what I expected though, the only downside was that it seemed slightly watery, but easy drinking, with medium carbonation. This beer was pretty good!

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tap. Weak black coffee color with some roasted malts on the nose. Flavor is oddly carbonated (like the Dunkel I had just before)...like a soda and has little flavor...some mild sweetness, but the body is all wrong.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Legitimate oatmeal stout. Fairly simple flavor; mostly oatmeal and malt. Watery mouthfeel.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tap at brewery. Pours thin brown-black with an aroma of rotten garbage and spoiled cabbage. The flavor follows suit, containing bit of rotten sugar-sweetened vegetables. Watery mouthfeel at best. This is liquid barf.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of the best Two Rows had to offer (which isn’t saying much). There was certainly an oatmealy flavor and aroma that dominated the beer. It might have been a little on the weak side of things for a true stoutie, but I’m a session/pale ale kind of guy so I rather enjoyed this. One of the best Two Rows offered, but like all of its brews, its Houston location, it left a little to be desired and was bland.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This poured a very dark brown body, nearly black, with a slender tan head. The aroma is a strange blending of buttered toast and coffee. Fairly thin for a stout, it had a flavor of roasted malts, coffee, and a bit of milk chocolate. Fairly watery finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the brewpub, Dallas
Dark brown color. Simple Oatmeal Stout, not bad but, again, too weak body.
