Pleasing enough but nothing special. Tasted like Guinness with a hint of chocolate. It was a little thin for me for a stout. I may have a few of these on St. Pat's Day as like I said, it is close enough to Guinness. The smell was nothing special. Faint chocolate with some roasted malts. Nice dark look in the glass.

Reviewed from notes.

A. Very dark brown with reddish highlights around the edges, one finger of tan head recedes back down to a collar in about a minute, minimal lacing left behind.

S. Smells lightly of roasted malt and bitter coffee, but mostly of baking chocolate. Not very intense in aroma overall.

T. Just like the nose, the flavor is mostly comprised of baking chocolate with tinges of faint roastedness / coffee. I can’t seem to separate out any hop bittering aroma or flavor from the light bitterness levels of the roast…overall everything seems like a very thin and light version of a stout. Its in balance, but needs some amplification IMHO.

M. Far too watery and thin for my preferences. Medium carbonation.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Dark red-brown with a short beige head that fades to respectable lacing.

The aroma has chocolate and roasty notes along with a little malty sweetness.

The flavor is more than a little watery with an almost metallic edge. I'm not getting any chocolate at all, just a little coffee like roast bitterness. A little sweetness but really there just isn't much there.

Thin on the mouthfeel but it's saved by good, smooth, creamy carbonation.

Overall, not much going for it. It lacks the richness that the aroma suggests which only makes the flavor more disappointing. Easy enough to drink but I can't imagine seeking it out again.

Pours a half inch medium mocha head on a brown beer,

Smell equals weak chocolate sweeetness.

Roasty, creamy chocolatey, A certain nuttiness, would guess more alcohol than stated 4.5%abv.

Medium motuhfeel, above average carbonation.

I liked this one a lot. A simple low ABV stout with big flavor. I wonder why it isn't rayed higher on Beer Advocate. Worth a try for stout fans.

Its Saturday night and time for dessert. Trying a Sand Creek Oscar Chocolate Stout. The stout poured dark opaque with off-white head that is not lacing. The smell includes roast, chocolate, and some espresso. The taste includes roast, chocolate, and espresso...much like the nose. The mouthfeel is ok, light body..perhaps too much carbonation. Overall it is a decent stout...not the best, but definitely good.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

I hope that bear can brew a good beer... It pours a dark garnet-tinged black-brown topped by a finger of relatively short-lived dirty tan foam. The nose comprises chocolate syrup, roasted malts, toasted oats, and a small bit o' molasses. The taste holds notes of cocoa powder, light coffee, very light molasses, and light roasted malts. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly smooth feel. Overall, a pretty nice oatmeal stout, one that doesn't try to do too much with the chocolate (which often ends in disappointment, frankly). Not bad at all.
