This is quite good, it has more the burnt and smoked oaky flavors of an Baltic Porter, but this is a nice fairly mild oatmeal stout nevertheless. It pours a nice thick, inky black with a nice dark tan head. The retention is okay, not tons of lace. The nose has the cellared oakiness, a touch of molasses, and some residual coffee aromas that make it reasonably enticing. These qualities will stay true for the taste.

The taste is very nice if for no other reason than the brewer is not trying to jam way too much ABV into a beer that doesn't warrant it. The beer is fairly full bodied, has a nice smoked oaky and molasses character. The oatmeal comes through on the silkiness on the tongue, but it doesn't quite live up to expectation in that there is too much foreground with the slightly burnt flavors, and not enough real chocolate and dark malt qualities where they should belong. As the beer warms, there is a touch of spice hidden away and this adds some complexity. The aftertaste carries on with a bit too much cherryish oaky quality and it just lingers a bit too long. This is a nice beer though, very drinkable for sure.

A: Pours a deep, dark brown with a finger thick, tan colored head that quickly dissipates.

S: Scent consists of roasted malts up front, with molasses, which takes over the smell and maybe hints of chocolate and vanilla.

T: The up front taste has nice roasted malts that linger throughout. This is followed by slight hints of chocolate and a sweetness, from either dark fruits or the molasses. The finish is dry with some left over roasted malt flavors.

M: Medium bodied, carbonation is low. Very smooth and crisp, dry and woody.

D: This is my first beer from the brewery and it is a pretty solid brew to say the least. Very well balanced, nothing crazy, but a nice consistent and delicious beer.

Enjoyed at a monday night tasting at Julios.

A - Pours a deep, rich brown not quite black with a slight mocha head that leaves average side lacing as it fades.

S - Very sweet roasted malts and fresh ground coffee beans (due to the bitterness and roast malts). A bit too sweet for me.

T - More of the same as the nose with lots aof rich, roasted malts and espresso flavours along with some light chocolate. The malts are abit too sweet.

M - Smooth, creamy, with good carbonation.

O - I enjoyed this stout. Its fairly standard and easy to get around here. An acceptable stout.
