look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A:Dark black/brown in Color. Very thin head with no lace, carbonation was a bit low as is most of Independence offerings.
S: very coffee/chocolaty. Had some chocolate milk there as well. Sweet caramel notes. still a bit grainy/earthy as well.
T: tasted of coffee/toffee/chocolate malts. Very chocolate milky. Had a bit of sweetness and earthiness there as well.
M: Very creamy/smooth. Not very heavy for a stout but still nice. went down easy enough.
O: Something I will go back to in the future. very much exceeded what I had expected from Independence.
Serving type: on-tap

A: poured nice and dark like a stout should be, great thick, dark tan head.
S: smells amazing! Lots of coffee, little bit of bitter dark chocolate.
T: loads of great coffee flavor followed by some slight bitterness from the hops with the slight chocolate after swallowing.
M: wonderfully carbonated, smooth and creamy from the flaked oatmeal.
O: the perfect breakfast stout. Tons of coffee flavor, followed by just the right amount of chocolate.

3.48/5 rDev -11.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
12oz bottle poured into Spiegelau tulip.
A: Pours pitch black with minimal tan head.
S: Lots of roasted malt, coffee, and vanilla.
T: Smokey, bitter burnt coffee, roasted malt, leather, a good hop presence, and a slight metallic after-taste.
M: Medium body, carbonation comes through more than expected. Surprisingly crisp, rather than the silky-smooth feel I'm accustomed to in most oatmeal stouts.
O: I'd say this was good, but definitely not great. My biggest gripe might be the smokey burnt coffee seemed to take over the entire beer. I think coffee can be great in stouts, but this one just went too far with it.
