On tap at San Marcos, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish tinge and a medium light brown head. Aroma brings out dry cocoa, light roast and some chalk. Flavour is very bitter, with bitter dry cocoa and light roast. Metallic and astringent. Not a good oatmeal stout.

Black with tan head. Skunked malty flavor. Like all of them. I officially hate their beers and will not drink them again.

Hand pump. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasted malts, moderate malts sweetness, some soft chocolate-like notes, and very faint diacetyl. Not awful.

"Not bad. Comes across a little on the thin side, even for the style, but the flavor and aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and cholcolate were pretty well done. Served via cask."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black in color with a fluffy off-white head. Nose is of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee, for the most part. A light sweetness of toffee and some earthy hop notes. There’s a light bitterness to the flavor. Earthy hops, some cocoa, dark chocolate, and coffee. Lots of roasted malt, a light malt sweetness, and light acidity on the finish.

In taster from cask at brewery. Looks almost pure black with a light brown head. Smells of mostly vanilla. Tastes not too good. The dark tastes i expect aren’t full. Simple stout with a bunch of aroma. Overall 5.5 of 10.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ SM Brewery & Grill. Pours dark brown with creamy tan head. Malty aroma of chocolate and coffee. Thin mouth feel perpetuates my feelings that this is quite drinkable for a stout but is ultimately lacking in depth and flavor.
