12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, completely opaque, pitch-black color, with an eighth of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that partially covered the top of the beer. As the beer drinks, there’s a great lacing of foam that curtains the glass, from top to bottom.

Aroma: Some mild aromas of roasted malt, some freshly baked bread, a hint of dark chocolate and a touch of coffee.

Taste: Pretty good. Nice flavors of roasted malt up front, imparting notes of chocolate and a little coffee, followed by some caramel-like sweetness, and a touch of hoppy bitterness at the finish. A well brewed oatmeal stout.

Mouthfeel: Slightly chewy, with some pretty good carbonation. With an ABV of 4.9%, there is absolutely no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a good, solid, well crafted, oatmeal stout. Nothing spectacular, but a very solid beer. Certainly worth a drink.

Dark mahogany colored and nearly opaque, but ruby highlights appear at the edges. Low oatmeal colored head recedes quickly. Aroma of toasted malt and cocoa, some leather notes. Rich flavor of dark malt, some cocoa, subtle charred bark and root beer, leather and roast in the finish. Slightly watery mouthfeel, finishes tingly, I expected more body. It's tannic and woody and talcy at the same time. Seems to straddle the dry stout style. Drinkable, but off style.

A - Pours jet black with a 1.5 finger head, dissipates down to a film. Nice whispy lacing.
S - Smells of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and caramel.
T - Sadly, smells better than it tastes, quite bitter coffee taste and alcohol. Not much else going on here, medium full bodies with a quick finish.
O - An OK beer, wouldn't buy again, but would order at a bar perhaps.
V - Medium.

Andrea: Initial taste ok. Terrible aftertaste. A very simple stout.

Ryan: Initial taste ok. Terrible, bitter, smokey aftertaste. Chocolate flavor absent. Would not drink again.
