3.2/5 rDev -1.5%
A-Dark pour with a thin, beige head that retains poorly and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass.
S-Bitter dark chocolate, milk sugars and coffee
T-bitter chocolate again, hops, coffee and dry wheat
MF-Medium bodied, light with a dry finish.
O-Looks good, but the taste and smell are just flat. Too bitter and not well-balanced. It's light and drinkable for a stout, but that's not what I want when I seek a stout out.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a large pint glass. Emerges nearly pitch black in color with some soft chocolate highlights. Head is nearly three fingers tall but is indicative of a beer with an infection: thin, wispy, and quick to leave. Minimal lacing.
Aroma has an alkaline acidity to it and is chalky. No hints of chocolate, or really much indicating this is a stout.
Flavor is light, slightly sour, chalky, minimal chocolate flavor, caramel, and hints of coffee.
A below average beer for sure. Light body with no chewiness, thin. Watery. Not a beer I would revisit.

3.35/5 rDev +3.1%
Clear dark brown colored ale with a small tan colored head.
Chocolate and patent malt. Toasted bread and coffee with a little caramel.
Starts out sweet with a little chocolate and more coffee. Slight milky flavor abundant Lactose. That's about it, not super complex.
Mouthfeel is good.
Overall an average beer on the sweet side for the style.

A: This poured a nearly opaque black ruby with a little light tan head.
S: It smelled like strong copper hops and bitter dark chocolate, with some dark roasted coffee and soy.
T: It tasted like bitter dark chocolate, with some dark roasted coffee and copper hops. It had a clean and bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Light body.
D: This was a mediocre stout to be generous. The looks and scent and taste and body were all at or below average for the style. The finish was smooth, and the flavor was really light, so it was super easy to drink. But that's a really small silver lining to an otherwise unimpressive beer. I doubt it would age well either. Not recommended.

3/5 rDev -7.7%
A: Black body with a thick eggshell white foamy head that recedes to a thin ring around the glass.
S: Light notes of roasted coffee. I don't get any on chocolate on the nose.
T: Light roasted flavors similar to coffee. Slight acrid and acid bitterness which pinches then finishes clean. I don't get any chocolate flavor.
M: It feels over-carbonated. For an oatmeal stout I want something smooth and perhaps a bit slick. The carbonation it tingly and the beer has a slightly abrasive feeling on the palate.
O: Overall it's a decent stout, but it doesn't have any real chocolate flavor. It tastes more like coffee or a regular stout, and the oatmeal doesn't lend any character to the beer. I really wouldn't recommend it to a person who's looking for an oatmeal stout or chocolate stout.
