3.63/5 rDev -14%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
The foam was thick, semi-dark wheat in color, smooth and lacey. The color was deep,dark opaque chocolate brown cola. The smell was a deep oatmeal with chocolate highlights, nutty accents and a barley overtone. The taste was crisp, thick deepness of oatmeal and slight chocolate accents. Nice hops andd wheat balance. Mouthfeel - Medium to full bodied, crisp, thick and semi-light viscous. Drinkability - a real good crisp stout. The only thing I really didn't like about this beer was the somewhat watered down feel in the aftertaste. Overall...not to bad.

4.2/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit
Appearance: Almost black with little to no tent when put up to the light. Two finger frothy tan head with ton of lacing
Smell: A tart, almost wine-like aroma straight out the fridge, but as it warms it mellows out and I pick up chocolate, oats, toffee, and a hint of roasted malts
Taste: Dark fruits upfront with a chocolate and oat finish. Very slight roasted malt presence
Mouthfeel: Medium body; Smooth as silk with a dry finish
Overall: I had the Taddy Porter and this back to back and find the two very similar, with this having a oat character of course, less dark fruit, and a more pronounced chocolate and toffee character. Both are solid offerings if a little light. However, SS do make some of the smoothest beers I've had. I prefer this over the porter, but ill stick with the imperial stout over both of these for now. Next up is the nut brown ale
