3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pitch black color with a medium tan head that fades and leaves spotty lacing. Smell of roasted malts and oats. Tastes the same as it smells but not much oat flavor. Mouthfeel is pretty light for a stout. Overall this is just average at best for an oatmeal stout.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown, nearly black color with a one finger of a cream colored head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a great level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is a nice blend of roasted malt, oatmeal, and some sweeter smells of sweet chocolate a bit of caramel. Along with these are some hints of vanilla and a bit of a bready smell, overall giving a nice roasty and sweet stout smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweet chocolate and oat taste with lots of vanilla sweetness. A moderate amount of roastiness is present right from the start which fades a bit as the taste advances. A bit of a coffee flavor comes to the tongue more toward the middle with a little bit of a molasses and light earthy hop flavor comes to the tongue. In the end a nice roasted, and sweet oatmeal stout flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly lower side. Both are rather nice for the roasted and sweet flavors of the beer and make for a very easy drinking but soothing feel.
Overall – A rather enjoyable brew overall. Nice, sweet, raoasty, oats, and smooth flavors with a very easy drinking feel. slowrunner77 (12824) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2014
"7%, you think this would be a touch more robust, but the body is a slight letdown. Otherwise, a solid interpretation, if not quite a standout. ample roast and chocolate, smooth, maybe a touch too sweet, but I liked it." cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle @ Greg’s dump, picked up at Supermarket Liquor. Pours a reddish brown with a light brown head. Light cocoa and caramel aroma with a bit of coffee. Dull carbonation. Light fruitiness. Some chocolate and roast in the flavor. Kind of boring but not horrendous. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark reddish brown with off white head, aroma brought notes of nuts, grain, brown sugar, some slight plum. Taste is a mix of dark cocoa, roast, hints of brown sugar, hints of dark fruit. Eh not bad, but not great. foyle (429) - Wyoming, USA - APR 5, 2014

Smooth creamy with hints of chocolate well balanced and easy on the palate. Very enjoyable and well done. rmussman (1701) - California, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Sampled in a mix pack at Costco. A nice stout that is very clean and smooth on the palate. The flavor was not quite what you would want and IBUs are quite low. Sledutah (7838) - Utah, USA - JAN 8, 2014
