3.73/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. The color is opaque black, though a hint of light passes through when held to a lamp. Two fingers of thick, tan head left a buttery ring around the edge and a thin, spotted lacing.

Smell: It is a run of the mill oatmeal stout: roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and that oatmeal creaminess. It has been quite a while since I drank a stout so I am very eager to take a sip.

Taste: Oooh — nice. The roasted malt and coffee bitterness are balanced by oatmeal, burnt caramel, and chocolate. However, the roasted bitterness does linger after each sip. After it has warmed considerably, it begins leaning toward medicinal rubber. Thankfully, though, it never passes the point of no return and remains enjoyable.

Drinkability: Solid stuff. It is not extraordinary, but it is pretty tasty.

3.58/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Sampling right now on 3/6/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a really dark brown/almost black in color with close to a 1-finger beige head that settles down to around the sides on top. Some spotty lacing is seen with each sip but not a lot. The aroma is of roasted malts and coffee for the most part. the taste is pretty much the same with a hint of bitter-sweet chocolate in the mix as well. A real light bitter finish.
