2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Courtesy of Coldbrewky, thank you Steve. Black with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and some licorice/cough medicine. The flavour has a roasted bitterness and some licorice notes, but IMO itís body is thin and lack complexity and the nice features of an oatmeal stout. 2037

Bottle from Half Time. Doesnít have Caywood though. Just plain oatmeal. Pours black with a 2 finger darkish tan head. Chocolate aroma. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is bitter chocolate. Maybe this should be a new entry? Finishes with a hint of coffee and a very dark chocolate bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pours pitch black with a huge, frothy, well-tanned, everlasting head. Diminishes to a small, permanent, creamy layer. The aroma is all molasses, chocolate and espresso. Full-bodied and very creamy with soft carbonation. Medium-sweet with heaps of molasses and roasted nuts layered over nudges of coffee and chocolate. Deeply roasted, bittersweet finish. A big SHOUT goes out to juiceisloose for passing this surprisingly good beer on to me!
