Good oatmeal stout. Smooth taste. Oatmeal, chocolate, roasted malts.. Nose is about the same.

Good beer, but not my liking either.
I was hoping for something creamier and heavier, more body. And there was no head on the pour. After taste was a little unappealing.

I appreciate a Guinness or the Left Hand Milk Stout a lot more.

Black and slick looking, feignt roasty smell. Decent beer but can't get over the bitter aftertaste. May need to give this another try from another batch.

this is a great, smooth, roasty stout. everything one should be. mine were not bitter at all like some have commented. only thing I might like is a tad more body, but it has enough as is. I just like to chew my stouts and this one is rather drinkable. very good none the less. Will definitely be buying this again. I don't always agree with 'the bros' rating, but fully agree with their 96 this time.
