3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at BJs in Lewisville. Replaced the Grand Cru which was a little better. Black in color with a decent head. Light coffee and oats in the aroma, could use some more. Taste again shows potential but comes but a little short

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at BJís in Cupertino, CA. Poured (obviously) a dark blackish brown color, but with very little head. Aromas were lightly sweet and roasty, but not much of anything really. Flavors were unsurprisingly roasty/malty with a very slight hint of sweetness. Nothing to crazy to report. Medium-to-thin bodied, lightly carbonated... maybe this was not the ideal pour...

Name: Oatmeal Stout

black, wispy beige head,
roasted and dark chocolate aroma with hints os espresso,
creamy oily body,
lots of dry roasted and dark chocolate flavor, nice coffee bitterness, long bitter finish,
the dark chocolate keeps the roasted and coffee characters in line and keeps them from being too overwhelming

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at brewhouse. Served ice cold with no head. Nice full aroma of oats. Flavor was biting bitter while the brew was cold. As it warmed the flavors mellowed out. Coffee, caramel and plenty of oats were the prominent flavors. Finish was bitter and more oats. Enjoyable. Iíd drink it again.
