4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled on tap at Tyranena on 9/10/05. This beer is a dark brown/black body that’s not quite pitch black. A good tan head. The aroma is oatmeal and coffee and chocolate. Very smooth aroma. The flavor is a really smooth oatmeal stout. Chocolate and oatmeal. Caramel. Delicious! Wow! VERY NICE. For an oatmeal stout, this is above and beyond my hopes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Subtle aroma of dark roasted malt and dark chocolate. Dark black with some ruby showing through and a tan head that fades. Oatmeal chocolate flavor, roast comes through in the finish, slightly bitter. Creamy, chalky palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, 1850 house. Black body, thin tan head. Somwhat watery flavor - dark roasted malt with coffee accents, some light green hops to break up the sweetness. The medium-light mouthfeel is aided by the oily oatmeal smoothness. Some fluffy, oily coffee in the finish. Peaty, coffeeish aroma. It’s hard to smell anything over the aroma of deep-frying fish.
