4.03/5  rDev +24%

Strong, smoky aroma has notes of quality coffee, licorice and semi-sweet chocolate. Pours a dark chocolate brown that lets in a little light just at the edges and has a thick and fairly persistent tan head. Smoky flavor has coffee, licorice and chocolate notes with hints of caramel, woody hops and molasses. Body seems a bit thin for a stout, and fizz leaves something to be desired - but the texture is this beer’s only real weak point.

2.9/5  rDev -10.8%

A - black with a reddish tinge when held up to light, nice foam, little lace

S - light, mostly roast notes

T - char and roast dominate, chocolate

M - medium at best - no creamy notes I expect from the style

O - an average attempt at the style, nothing objectionable, but no wow factor

I enjoyed this beer. But it did not have the character to make me buy it again.

22oz bottle from Total Wine (Kennesaw, GA). 8.99. Served in a Founders snifter.

Pours dark brown with three quarter finger light tan head. Small clumps of occasional lacing.

Smells metallic with cocoa, char and burnt sugar.

Tastes of cocoa powder, chalk, roasted malts and dark chocolate.

Light but creamy thin body with abundant carbonation. Bitter dry dark cocoa aftertaste.

I feel cheated on this one. For the same money (much less in many cases) there are far superior chocolate stouts available.

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: 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.

Darker than coal miner's lungs with a thin white head into my glass. A-yup. No offense to actual coal miners.

Creamy with lots of roasted malt and a touch of cocoa. Seems about right to me. Wonder what it'll taste like.

Cocoa powder explodes upfront, leaving a chalky residue in the mouth. At least the roasted malt doesn't overpower.

Mouthfeel is slick but not enough to impress. Chalky cocoa powder dominates the rest.

I have to agree with the previous reviewer on the chalkiness. I can tell. This isn't the greatest example out there (I think Wolaver's Oatmeal Stout is the bees knees but that's just me) but it's also not as overproduced as Ass Kisser's other offerings.

Speaking of such, I couldn't think of a worse name for a brewery.

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.
