look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: deep brown almost black. a very small tan head that doesn't fade one bit and leaves a sticky lacing. dark and opaque.

Smell: chocolate, oatmeal, and some other sweet malts

Taste: lots of chocolate and some chocolate covered oatmeal. a very light but sweet burnt, presumably from dark crystal malts

Mouthfeel: pretty light but slightly over sweet.

Overall: a very sweet and rich stout. a little two rich for my blood. I do like sweeter beers but they are usually stronger than this. perhaps of roasty malts would balance this out nicely.

Appearance is dark and thin.

Smells like chocolate and booze.

Taste is just not there. I'm thinking an imperial or barrel aged version would be awesome, but this just isn't there. Not enough booze to go with the sweet.

Mouthfeel is a bit dull and lacking. Tastes like a melted chocolate bar with no booze bite.

Overall this beer did little to impress me. This beer could have been so much more.

Pours opaque very dark brown to black with a lasting, creamy tan head. A sheet of lacing sticks to the glass.

The smell is of robust chocolate with roasted espresso and a touch of earthy spicing.

The taste is of rich, sweet dark chocolate. Roasted espresso beans add a complex layer and balance to the dark malt character. Earthy, anise-like notes come through the the dry roasted finish.

Oatmeal malt lends smoothness. It has a rich, full body without being too thick.

A rich, hearty chocolate oatmeal stout! Very enjoyable!
