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

Appearance - Very dark brown - not quite black. Decent mocha colored head as you would expect for the style.

Smell - coffee, chocolate, alcohol, slight hops

Taste - Very nice. Consistent with the scent - coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. A noticeable hop presence for the style. Reminds me of Stone Smoked Porter in terms of the hops...something I really enjoy for the style as it balances things out a bit.

Mouthfeel - Nice but nothing amazing. Lower carbonation.

Overall - I really enjoy this beer. For a non-imperial stout, one of my favorites. @ $10 for a six pack in MA it's a great value. Will become part of the normal rotation.

3.58/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22 oz bomber cellared for over a year.

Look: Poured a dark black with a 1/2 inch long lasting tan head. Nice lacing.

Smell. Lots of malt and coffee. Can imagine the oats involved.

Taste. Nice oatmeal flavor. Lots of coffee, even after a year. A little bitterness at the end.

Mouth. A little weak and light, but maybe right for a 7% beer. Light carbonation.

Overall, nice oatmeal stout. Would like a little less bitterness.

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

A- It was a dark brownish-black, thick, and very creamy.

S- The smell was of a hint of chocolate and alcohol.

T- Taste was very a smooth coffee flavor with strong chocolate but not overpowering and great aftertaste that made me take another sip.

M- Very thick, creamy to sum it up.

O- Great taste and feel and balance and complexity great stout with good linger

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

A- Black as night. A half finger of dense mocha colored head. Nice lacing.

S- Espresso and sweet oats. Some very, very dark chocolate as well.

T- Sweetness certainly is not the point of this one. Dark roast, and charcoal is met with a quick flash of citric/floral hops which quickly lead to the big dose of coffee and unsweetened dark chocolate bitterness.

M- Smooth from the oats. Brash from the hops. I wish it would lean a bit towards the smoother side.

O- Very good. A good counterpoint to the overly sweet examples of the style.
