Reviewed from notes.

Poured out a dark brown color with a fairly stable single finger of tan colored head but only minimal lacing. Smells of roasted malt tones blended with milk chocolate and a splash of coffee, tastes more of the milk chocolate than the roastedness from the nose, sadly. Seems overall to be balanced somewhat too sweet for my personal preferences, but YMMV. I just prefer my stouts a little bit less sugary and caramelized than this. Smooth texture and lighter carbonation over a medium-heavy body.

Deep and dark brown Colorado bordering on opacity; one finger light brown head that settles slowly and leaves patchy lace. Nicely roasty aroma with prominent bittersweet chocolate and a subtle floral hop note underneath.

Flavor is close to the nose; bitter chocolate is most prominent, followed by roasted malt and hints of coffee and floral, earthy hops. Pretty tasty.

Medium bodied and medium carbonated, with added smoothness and creaminess from the oatmeal. A good chocolate-forward example of the style. Highly drinkable.

Reviewing Down 'N Dirty Chocolate Oatmeal Stout from Tyranena Brewing Company.
Score: 91

Bottled March 07, 2012. Served in a Dogfish Head snifter and enjoyed on 05/06/12.

Appearance: Pours a deep brown syrup, almost black color. Totally opaque save for a thin film strip of caramel highlight at the top of the glass when held up to light. A finger-and-a-half of creamy/seafoam tan head settles to a thin film atop the beer. Good lacing and retention. Nice cling. 4.5/5

Smell: Lots of roast and toasted oats. Cocoa, bitter raw chocolate, coffee and oatmeal. A little creamer. Very breakfast stout-like. 4/5

Taste: Very creamy and roasty. Cocoa, roasted bitter chocolate, creamy oatmeal, and coffee. Oats and a little barley. Light hoppiness on the back end. Very pleasant oatmeal stout. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied, light carbonation. Very creamy mouthfeel. Bitter, slightly acidic finish. Modestly dry. Really excellent mouthfeel. 4.5/5

Overall: Really underrated off-the-shelf oatmeal stout from Tyranena Brewing Company. It is very creamy, chocolately and roasty. I would absolutely love to try the barrel aged version of this -- the Doubly Down 'N Even Dirtier. Down 'N Dirty Chocolate Oatmeal Stout is better than New Glarus' Road Slush.

Recommendation: Seek a bottle of this out. Even casual beer drinkers should enjoy this one. If you have a non-beer geek friend that loves Guinness, give him a bottle of this to start his craft beer journey.

Pairings: Vanilla bean ice cream.

Cost: $2 for a 12 oz bottle.
