In an effort to knock out the rest of my backlog, my ratings will be fairly generic and sparse. If the beer had anything special to offer, it will be noted following this disclaimer. The number ratings above are accurate based on my tasting notes. Following the elimination of my backlog, all beers will be entered in real time and will be more useful. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Surprisingly, not too bad of a stout. Decent sweetness and fairly mellow.

williamherbert (1290) - Syracuse, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Appearance is clear brown, with red at the edges. Not much head, if any. The smell is sweet caramel and toffee. Some sour grape and raisin. Not much of the roasted, grainy balanced I had anticipated for this style. The taste is grapes, dates and prunes. Very sweet, with a hint of roasted caramel malts. Sweet plums. A tad musty but not bad. Some hints of grainy oats as it warms up. Dark berries. The feel is smooth like honey. Not as dry as I had expected. Itís very sweet and not nearly enough roasted balance. More like a dark or brown ale.

sampler pack Bottle. Pours dark dark red brown, tan head. Aroma is licorice, molasses, nuts, and malt. Flavor is molasses, caramel, malt, nuts, coffee. Light to medium body for a sweet stout.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Pours solid brown with a foamy tan head. Toast bread and nutty caramel aroma. The oatmeal seems to be more pronounced in this beer than most oatmeal stouts but itís not unpleasant. Very roasty and toasty with some choc and coffee tones as well. Overall pretty good but I wish it had a thicker body.

jcr (2210) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2009
Bottle. Black body with a tan-colored head, moslty lasting. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malt, latte and toast. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter flavor, but the finish is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. The moderate bitter bite is a nice contrast to the sweet malts. Medium body with a creamy texture. Mild carbonation. Fairly straightforward oatmeal stout, but well done.

Smells of caramel, coffee, roasty malt, flavor is a mix of dark malts, caramel, chocolate, with a fadingly sweet aftertaste. Above average

Pours very dark brown with little to no head. Aroma has a slight roasted note. Had a hint of roast and chocolate flavor. Smooth drinking with flavor disappearing quickly. Overall a good tasting brew.

NomDeBeer (414) - Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2009
Pours black with no head. Taste and aroma are very similar - warm and smooth, dominated by nuts, and buttered bread. Some chocolate and very faint roastiness in the background. Very smooth, easy-drinking beer. Enjoyable too. Finish is very short.
