3.85/5 rDev +0.8%
12oz. Bottle poured into a pint glass. An extra courtesy of GHB.
Appearance: Dark brown with a nice tan head of about 1" that sticks around with some nice lacing.
Smell: Mild coffee and chocolate on the nose.
Taste: Coffee up front with some bitter chocolate on the finish, maybe a hint of toffee but overall a pleasant bitterness dominates from the combination of the roasted malt and hops.
Mouthfeel: Relatively thin on the palate, maybe just a little too thin for an oatmeal stout.
Overall: There are really some nice flavors here; however, the lightness of the body keeps this beer from being as good as it could be.

4.18/5 rDev +9.4%
Appearance: pours a deep molasses color. Hardly any head and no lacing. A thin ring of bubbles around the edge. smell: Sweet caramel and toffee aroma, like a milk stout. Taste: Bitter-sweet chocolate, mild expresso, lightly toasted bread. Mouthfeel: medium to light bodied for a stout. Again, very similar to a milk stout or a porter. Overall; Very enjoyable and well worth a try especially if you're a porter lover.

Bottle poured into pint glass
Deep dark chocolate brown with creamy two finger cap that eased down into gentle edged lacings on the side of the glass. Nearly impervious to light with faint ruby shades at the bottom of the glass
subtle coffee fragrance with a hint of molasses
Smooth with a nice finish . Stout taste with subtle coffee after notes . Nice balance with the hops
Good weight on my tongue . Low to no carbonation
A good, pleasant stout and would prefer to try it on tap

a deep brown almost black pour, 1/2 of tan head. excellent retention/lacing.
smells of wood, vanilla, coffee, tobacco.
slight bitterness up front from the roasted grains with a milky sweet chocolatey finish. a delicious treat.. perfect balance of roasted and sweet flavors.
medium body with a creamy feel, nicely carbonated and leaves a chalky feeling behind.
overall, a damn fine stout! looks, feels, smells and tastes great, what more could you want? granted, it's not a special one off or anything like that, but as far as brewery staple beers go - this is fantastic.

A: Pours a dark brown that does not allow much light to get through, 1 finger of tan head with a good amount of lacing.
S: Coffee, chocolate and roasted malt on the nose.
T: Similar to the nose, coffee, chocolate, slight bitterness, and finishes with roasted malt.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation with a dry finish.
O: As someone that is not well versed with stouts I found this to be very drinkable.
