look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Oct. 7, 2012 (purchased at BevMo in La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) as part of a winter variety 12-pack for $15.99 (with card) on Oct. 5, 2012). Black with just below two fingers of khaki tan head.
Surprisingly below average retention all-around.

Smelled dark chocolate, coffee, coffee beans, toffee, roasty malts and even a little black licorice.

Taste didn’t really come together as much as I would have liked. Got a lot more black licorice, dark chocolate, coffee and roasty, bitter malts. Maybe even some dark fruits in there late.

Medium-to-full body. Creamy slick texture. Average-to-below average carbonation. Long, bitter finish.

I was slightly disappointed. The flavors just didn’t come together. I probably wouldn’t have it again.

3.6/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown, nearly black color with a one finger of a cream colored head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a great level of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is a nice blend of roasted malt, oatmeal, and some sweeter smells of sweet chocolate a bit of caramel. Along with these are some hints of vanilla and a bit of a bready smell, overall giving a nice roasty and sweet stout smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweet chocolate and oat taste with lots of vanilla sweetness. A moderate amount of roastiness is present right from the start which fades a bit as the taste advances. A bit of a coffee flavor comes to the tongue more toward the middle with a little bit of a molasses and light earthy hop flavor comes to the tongue. In the end a nice roasted, and sweet oatmeal stout flavor is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly lower side. Both are rather nice for the roasted and sweet flavors of the beer and make for a very easy drinking but soothing feel.

Overall – A rather enjoyable brew overall. Nice, sweet, raoasty, oats, and smooth flavors with a very easy drinking feel.

2.8/5  rDev -19.3%
look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle with "enjoy by 02/03/2013" on the label into a Unibroue goblet that had just before held a Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Oatmeal Stout. Pours dark brown/black with a large light tan head that had remarkably excellent retention.

Aroma: Belgian yeast (?!) and some mild toasted grain aroma.

T: Well, the "Belgian yeast" that seemed to be in the aroma clearly seems to be Brett; and I assume Brett contamination rather than an intentional introduction. Nonetheless, the Brett level is tolerable and the beer is drinkable. Hard to be more positive than that, however.

M: Slightly thin for style, but otherwise very good, smooth feel. Fairly high level of carbonation for style makes this a very lively oatmeal stout.

O: Bad bottle? Properly capped bottle pulled from refrigerated storage only 2 weeks past enjoy by date, so any problems stem from bottling or earlier. Will revisit down the road.

Enjoy by 031414; they get brownie points for an enjoy by date

A: A very dark brown with good clarity. The head is a medium tan with cream bubbles and decent retention.

S: A moderate citrus hops aroma with a bit of dry hopped grassiness over moderate malt sweetness. There is a moderate dark fruit aroma that blends with a some alcohol to give the impression of over ripe plums and figs.

T: This is an American Stout with more fruit than usual and some oatmeal body. There is a moderate hops bitterness with moderate citrus hops flavor. A moderate amount of fruit flavors being plum and dark cherry. The dark malt bring a light cocoa with some coffee. The balance is towards the bitter with not much malt sweetness.

M: Full bodied with moderately-strong carbonation. There is a light slickness on the tongue but nothing like that oily slickness like most.

O: The nose is kind of fruit dominated which continues into the flavor; had they changed the yeast this could have made for a nice Belgian Dark Strong.
