3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Labeled as "Down ’N Dirty Chocolate Oatmeal Stout." Aroma of brown sugar, brownies, and dark chocolate. Dry, fruity, milky, and somehow soft smell. Pours a dark brown with a moderate amount of tan head. Dark amber hue. Good lacing. Flavors include coffee and chocolate as well as citrus and char in the finish. Soft and silky in the palate. Easy to drink. Light body. Unremarkable beer overall. It’s simple and not my favorite style, but it’s reasonable for what it is.

This poured an almost black color with a beige head. Aroma was nicely roasted malts and some chocolately sweetness. Flavor was very roasted, with alot more notes of coffee than chocolate. Not as sweet as I was hoping but a good been nonetheless.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours into a tulip glass a deep brown almost balck color with a very nice 2 finger fluffy tan tan. The aroma is everywhere! I just poured it and can smell sitting here at the computer. Smells of dark roast, chocolate, and something slighly bitter. The flavor is extremely smooth. The roasted malt is well balanced and smooth. Dark chocolate after taste with a touch of coffee bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium.
Alcohol flavor not present.
I bought this to give out as extras since it is local but decided to crack to see how it was and I was very surprised! Very good!
