look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.

A - Pours a nice dark brown with a light brown head. Head seems to stick around for quite a while. Appears to be fairly well carbonated.

S - Dark, bready, oatmeal. Maybe a little chocolate.

T - A little on the sweeter side, with some nice roasted chocolate/coffee notes and a consistent breadiness throughout.

M - medium bodied with a nice carbonation.

O - Overall, one of the better oatmeal stouts that I've had. I'll be coming back for more of this one.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours what seems black but appears deep dark red when held up to the light. Good carbonation coming up with a really creamy, fluffy beige head. Solid half rings of lace half way down the glass and a half finger of retention.

S - Roasty, cola, brown sugar, cereal, chocolate.

T - Cola, brown sugar, chocolatey sweetness. Roasted coffee beans. Cola note comes on stronger than I'd like. Flavour comes out richer and chocolatier as it warms but the cola flavour still lingers there.

M - Good carbonation, roasted coffee bean and dry finish with some cola. Creamy medium body.

O/D - Cola note holds it back, otherwise it's not too shabby. On the sweeter end of the spectrum. Not too shabby.
