4.5/5 rDev +16.9%
Appearance- pour a opaque black, massive expresso two finger fluffy head, sticky lacing to the glass.
Smell-sweet milk chocolate, tangy background.
Mouthful/taste/Drinkability- great body, creamy texture, massive milk chocolate flavor, tangy hop bitterness which balances the sweetness nicely. Has a nice roasty back notes but the chocolate takes the for front with this brew. Great creamy body from the oats. I would of liked to of seen maybe a little bit more of hop bit. This reminds me more of a milk stout or chocolate stout from all that chocolate flavor that takes the over the remainder of the aroma in flavor. But no complaints it a really great beer and for the price at 5.99 for a 6 pack you can't go wrong. I'll definitely buy this again, I recommend you give it a try.

Poured into a tuplip glass
Bottle date: unknown
pour date: August 18, 2014
APPEARANCE: nearly jet black.. has a deep coffee hue to it. Had a 1" thick, light tan, foamy head, but quickly settled to a thin lamina leaving uniformal lacing around wall of glass.
SMELL: molasses, teriyaki, plums
TASTE: Over-steeped coffee and plums. Reminds of the flavor I get when I dry-hit through my aromatic tobacco pipe. Sweet up front, but the bitterness quickly balances it out.
FEEL: creamy, full bodied, not too sticky.
BURP: unpleasant, choppy and foamy

A> Poured from a 12oz bottle, pours a small khaki head with decent retention. Nice dark brew, looks good.
S> Smells of mocha, chocolate, cream, and a hint of brown sugar.
T> A lot of mocha and chocolate flavors, nice creaminess, quite sweet with just a touch of sour. Really nice.
M> Feels nice in the mouth, surprisingly thick for the style. Highly drinkable.
O> Not a huge fan of TJs beers, but the Stockyard Stout is a very nice stout and a terrific value at $1 per beer.

A- mocha- like head forms two fingers high. Frothy and persistent. Body is pitch-black and completely opaque.
S- rich caramel and toffee aromas. Smells big like an imperial stout. Bitter dark chocolate notes. Hint of booze. There's also something like chicory or oak.
T- Robust flavors of caramel, dark chocolate and roasted malt. There's a big dose of vanilla present. There's a touch of assertive, piney hop flavor.
M- Smooth, mellow and creamy. Sweet throughout until a mildly bitter finish. Carbonation is lively and creates a vibrant sensation.
This is one of the best bang for your buck stouts, I must say. Great in every category.

The beer pours an almost completely opaque brown. The scant translucent brown head dissipated to a foam ring.
The aroma was roasty and of coffee with some sweetness and a little breadiness. There was no hops component to the aroma.
Sweetness carries the day here and virtually overpowers the roastiness. This beer seems too sweet even for this style. There was only a hint of hops astringency.
This beer has a light body with medium carbonation.
Overall, this beer is OK, but was a little too sweet even for me. Reminds me of a milk stout.
