3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle pours a black with a sudsy brown head. Smells like roasted malt, burnt oats, a hint of coffee and cocoa. Tastes good. Not as full bodied as some of the other Imperial stouts, but it’s nice and creamy, mildly carbonated, and has a nice long finish. An outstanding brew at this price point. Another really good beer from Tyranena.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pitch black with big tan head. Nose heavy with acidic roast malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Smooth, oatmeal-silky body with more acidic roast malt/coffee with a faint sweet aspect. Lingering bitter chocolate and roast. The acidic roasted malt quality is just slightly more than I’d like. Nice stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Tap] Draught at Farmhouse in Evanston. Pours an opaque black color with a lasting brown head. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate, espresso and vanilla bean. Oatmeal comes out a bit more in the flavor. Milk chocolate, mocha, earthy notes and lingering bittersweet finish. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Pleasantly surprised by this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Too thin in my opinion especially for an oatmeal stout. Has a finger tan head that recess nicely. Good flavor nothing that makes it unique but a middle of the road oatmeal chocolate stout.

Black pour with a creamy tan colored head. Chocolate & roast aroma. Creamy mouth. Lots of roast & dark chocolate. Bitter espresso creeps in as it warms. Roasted nuts also pop in and out of this one as your drink it. Lace is present.

Bottle. Pours thick, nearly black. medium creamy light brown head, fairly lasting with some lace. Lighter medium body. Creamy. Fairly Soft. Oatmeal character makes a super smooth mouthfeel. Aromatic and flavorful. Sweet. Roasty. Really pleasant bitterness through the finish. Coffee and chocolate stand out.
