look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours an opaque black with a thin layer of bubbles close to the same color as the label.

S - Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, standard for a stout, though it comes on a lot stronger than most I have in recent memory. Slight vanilla scent as well.

T - Roasted malts dominate with a smooth chocolate taste lingering throughout. Hints of oatmeal and vanilla stay in the background. Very sweet tasting, almost as sweet as a milk stout, but not quite, the roasted malts still dominate heavily in this beer. The flavors are just as strong as the aroma.

M - Not quite medium bodied, but not as heavy as most stouts within the style. It feels a little thin. Definitely a good creamy mouthfeel from the oatmeal, but the thin-ness of the beer takes a little away here. Finish is bitter roasted malts.

D - Great drinkability. I love picking up a 6-pack of this for a Friday night, it's a great sessionable stout. I haven't tried all of Brown's brews yet, but it probably isn't a stretch to say this will be my favorite of all their beers.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark brown, almost black body, with a thin, creamy tan head; mostly lasting, but no lacing.

S: A light nose, but a good one at that: roasted chocolate malts, sweet toasted oats, coffee notes, caramel, and some vanilla.

T/M: Great flavor: oats create a sense of sweetness while the roasted chocolate malts create a slight bitterness to balance it out. Getting a little lactose to make it creamy and kind of lean, but it's still chewy on the tongue and carbonation is light. Didn't expect it, but definitely getting some smoke in the flavor as well. Other flavors include cocoa, coffee, and vanilla.

O: I love oatmeal stouts and this one was really nice. It's always my go-to at the Tri-City ValleyCats ballgame. Easy to find, priced well, and characteristics are spot on. A must try for a oatmeal stout lover.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours a dark black with a thin layer of light tan almost beige bubbles close which dissipated rather quickly leaving no head at all.

S - Roasted malts, chocolate, caramel notes

T - Roasted malts dominate with a smooth chocolate and caramel taste lingering throughout. Hints of oatmeal and vanilla stay in the background. Sweet and smooth!

M - Medium bodied for a stout, it feels a little thin with carbonation this dissappears quickly. Finish is a yummy roasted malt flavor.

D - Great drinkability. I could drink a sixer of this stout and not feel inflated - I can not say that about a lot of stouts. I really liked this beer but then again it fell in line with a lot of porters that I really enjoyed.
