3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark Brown, Almost Black, Tan Head, Lots Of Lacing. Sweet Chocolate and Toasted Coffee, Light Bitter and Light Creamy at the end. Too thin and could be a little more creamier. Easy to drink. Pretty good, keeping in mind that it is brewed just for a food chain. Just that last piece of information usually does not promise anything good. Well, this is exception. Decent.

Far more lactose-based than oatmeal-based, to me at least, with a thinner-than-expected body and bittersweet chocolate taste. Poured to an uncommonly huge head with a lot of carbonation. Just OK.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Trader Joe’s. It pours a dark brown color with a creamy light brown head. The aroma is a bit acidic with heavy dark malts. A little coffee-like with some buttered toffee and nuts .The flavor is full bodied and very creamy on the palate. Lots of dark malts with heavy roast in the finish. Overall, it has more of a toasted malt profile except for the finish which borders on burnt. I’m not getting the acidity I picked up in the aroma, which is a good thing in my book. A bit of a simplistic beer, but not bad.

Pours like oil. SMells like oatmeal and tastes even more so. An oatmeal stout that delivers on its namesake.

3rd June 2016, 12oz bottle into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip. Looked fine, black with a lasting tanned head. Over roasted oats and malts give the aroma and taste some dark chocolate and ground coffee flavours. Nothing too exciting but nothing wrong with it either.

Drank from the bottle. Smell is bitter oatmeal, malt, and leathery. Taste follows. A decently balanced, not too sweet or pungent beer. Great for the price
