esire for winter to never end. Incorporating the smooth creaminess of organic rolled oats, our Oatmeal Porter ditches the stout’s roasted bitterness in favor

En fût chez Crescent Moon Alehouse: Plus sur le caramel que le chocolat avec une délicate torréfaction. Équilibré mais sans histoire.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from bottle into pint glass. A pretty uneventful beer. Very good mouthfeel and low carbonation. I wish the flavor was as good. Low roastiness, which is fine, but there is nothing else that steps up. Finish contains off flavors and is a touch sour.

12 oz bottle pours reddish brown with minimal head. Got some tobacco, coffee, some cocoa/baker’s chocolate. Very smooth mouthfeel. Nothing out of this world, but clean and smooth.

Draft @ brewery. Light earthy oatmeal and chocolate malt aroma. Dark brown with a moderate beige head. Earthy oat, roasty coffee malt, and cola flavor. Body on the light side of medium, moderate carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Opaque black color, head that quickly drops to the rim, light stringers of lace. Taste is clean bitter malt that moves without change through a short finish. Pretty unassuming, but the one taste it has is enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pretty much black colored body with a tan head. Nose of rich milk chocolate. Sweet oatmeal is also present. Hints of caramel. The body is smooth and slick. This tastes like chocolate chip pancakes doused with caramel and coffee. A nice walnut character. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crushed while Jakebra was using the toilet!
Pours basically black with a small loose-ish tan head.
The aroma is rich and roasty, it’s got a lot of freshly roasted coffe character. It’s got some lighter hints of ashiness and chocolate... but it’s awfully coffe forward with some restrained sweetness.
The flavor hits some real high notes, it’s mildly sweet with a touch of bright fruity hops and a little bit of dark fruit too. It’s got a nice coffe character and a good dark chocolate thing going on. The bitterness is satisfying at one level but it’s got this lightly astringent ashiness lurking in the background that throws it off for me a touch. Otherwise it’s really very nice.
The mouthfeel is nicely full and the low carbonation works well on this one.
