look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours a dark black color with a two finger head that lasts a while. Some moderate lace develops.

Smell: roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate, and a bit of oatmeal comes through to the nose.

Taste: follows the nose as roasted malt, dark chocolate, a hint of espresso, and some smoothness from the oats creates a well balance flavor profile. Bitterness is very mild, and there is a hint of burnt flavor arriving late.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Smooth from start to finish. Short lasting aftertaste.

Overall: a decent beer but one of these is enough in a session. Worth giving it a try especially since the chocolate does come through here.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Completely black and opaque. Limited head, would like to see a bit more foam once poured into a glass.

Smell: Roasted coffee and cappuccino/mocha. Smells great!

Taste: For a chocolate oatmeal stout, it has some nice chocolate mocha flavors that needs a little more depth. Additional roasted coffee flavor might be good. Not particularly dry, there is plenty of lingering sweetness. Only a little astringency toward the end.

Mouthfeel: It could use significantly more body to smooth out the roasted malt. Oatmeal stouts come with the expectation that they are exceedingly smooth and coat the mouth. I imagine it might be significantly better on nitro rather than from the bottle or CO2 tap.

Overall: It's good, it could be great if you could have it on nitro or if they bump up the body and mouthfeel a bit. But if you're looking for a solid chocolate stout with a touch of roasted aromas, Oscar's won't disappoint.

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

Pours seal brown with an unremarkable khaki head that soon recedes. Aroma smells of chocolate, coffee, and a touch of molasses. The taste features black coffee up front courtesy of the roasted (practically burnt) malt. This is not nearly as sweet as the smell would suggest, and any chocolate is barely a whisper, which is surprising considering the name on the bottle. The coffee bitterness segues into more of a hop bitterness in the middle. A more palatable coffee/mocha flavor reestablishes itself at the finish, yielding a pleasurable aftertaste that outshines the majority of the experience. The medium body facilitates a smooth mouthfeel, though I prefer a little more chewiness in a stout myself.

This is a drinkable stout, however the bitterness leaves it mostly one-dimensional.
