look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A - Lighter side of black color. Medium sized, somewhat thick, creamy, light beige head. Average retention leaving patchy lace.

S - Dull, bittersweet chocolate along with some stale, black coffee. Slight astringent aroma. Touches of cream and vainilla but it's hidden by the other flavors.

T - Similar to the nose. Dull, stale flavors. Bittersweet chocolate along with stale coffee/coffee grounds along with the astringency that can accompany that. There is some nice sweetness that comes out that really pairs nicely with the chocolate but it's a bit too faint.

M - Medium to light body. Average carbonation. Too thin/watery for the style.

D - The astringency and dull flavors aren't enough to make this undrinkable (or even hard to drink) but they don't make it one that I want to keep drinking. The body also doesn't do it any favors.

Notes: Not really wowed by this. It's not awful or undrinkable by any means, but it was pretty lackluster. Lack of a nice, chewy body was what disappointed me most (as that's a big reason why I enjoy Oatmeal Stouts). Probably would just pass this one over.

A random single I picked up on a recent trip to Duluth...

A - Pours a dark ruby red colour, finger of head with little retention and no lacing.

S - Quite nutty on the nose, roasted coffee, burnt chocolate and candied nuts, dark cocoa and a hint of vanilla.

T - Creamy chocolate with a unique earthy leafy, grassy, hop flavour, paper mache, dark cocoa and an odd latex/plastic flavour that lingers.

M - No complaints here, goes down smooth and finishes wet.

O - The odd flavour that lingered was a bit of a turn off. It could be an off bottle, though by no means to be interpreted as a drain pour. I would like to try this on tap and will be seeking out another sample next time I visit Duluth.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

a - this looks the part, deep and dark with a tan head that laces nicely

s - too damn subtle, but what's there is good, grains, metallic, like a brown ale really, where's the oatmeal?

t - again, subtle... you have to do a bit of thinking to gather anything worth noting... it's like a dark, oat-dashed New Castle, not very impressive

m - decent, milky and an appropriate level of carbonation, don't expect anything spectacular but it works

o - average, that's about it
