3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Near black pour with a 1 finger, creamy tan head. Aroma is big on chocolate and roasted nuts, a little old campfire smoke, a tiny bit of char and a nice touch of toasted grains. Flavor is chocolate, char, smoke and roasted nuts, then earth, coffee, light tannins, a hint of toasty grain. Light to medium body, a medium to heavy and sharp carbonation neutral entry, dry, slightly chalky finish. Good overall, but the mouthfeel doesn’t really fit the beer, too dry, thin and over carbonated. Still, pretty enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque black with a miniscule sized beige head. Aromatics consist of dark roast, chocolate, oatmeal, and malt. Full bodied and quite smooth. Flavours present in the aroma are present in the taste as well with the addition of some vanilla, milk and hops in the finish which create a mildly sweet finish that is balanced well with hops and roast. Quite nice.

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.

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.
