3.86/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A-Pours a very dark brown. Small accumulation of brown head. Mild lacing.

S-Moderate roast with a more noticeable chocolate presence. Light roast coffee and maybe a bit of dark fruit.

T-Chocolate muffins. Roast maltiness is far from over the top. Oats and light nuts. Alcohol sneaks in on the flavor's finish.

M-Body is not very viscous or full. I could stand to see it a bit fuller. Flavors do not linger for very often. Mild bitterness.

O-A pretty standard, albeit tasty Imperial Stout. It doesn't press the boundaries of the style like seemingly every other Imperial Stout is trying to do now a days and their strategy with this beer worked for me.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured a deep brown hue with a one finger foamy tan head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured roasted malts, dark fruit and charcoal.

The taste consisted of a chewy roasted malt with charcoal and a touch of lactose.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side if the style with a gentle carbonation.

Overall a tasty and brawny oatmeal stout.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

A-typical dark looking beer with a decent head that doesn't last long

S-Not much to say. Oddly smells like a wild ale

T-I must have a bad bottle. Taste like vinegar and nothing else. I even had someone else taste it and by the look on their face I am correct.

M-Not bad. Regular feel.

O-I am chaulking this one up as a fluke. I will try again if I run into it on tap.
