3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, Ridgeview Liquors Green Bay/WI. Pours a generic filter coffee black with big-pored cola foam. Not much in the way of aroma but the precursor of roast, contained by chalky watery body. Surprisingly light-bodied for an oatmeal stout, enhancing the overbearing cold filter coffee dimension of the taste, some cocoa powder and "traces of nuts" and caramel. Almost a dry stout.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from friendís beer refrig., poured to a shaker showing some ruby highlighting as it entered the glass, but mainly a black/brown hue, with a modest layer of brownish tan foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was roasty, mainly coffee with some chocolate backing. Medium bodied, with low carbonation, and some decent malt to balance the low hop bitterness. Somewhat dry finishing with some woody & dusty hints. Not bad. Went down easy, and was nicely food compatible.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Too much citrus for an oatmeal stout. Needs more chocolate. Lacks the velvety mouth feel of an oatmeal stout. Received in my beer of the month. Not very memorable.

3.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clean with small head. Almost no aroma. Taste is chocolate and coffee but has a hint of something else I canít quite identify - kind of reminds me of lunchmeat.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very smooth oatmeal stout with a very easy to drink palate and smooth finish. The body needs to be a little more robust and the character a little more emphatic. While it is smooth and drinkable, the chocolate flavor is minimal and unannounced. Overall a nice beer.
