Poured cold into a spiegelau stout glass. Best by 4/10/15, consumed on 3/25. Probably a little old.
Look = 4.0 Pours deep brown into an opaque black with 2 fingers of brown head composed of big bubbles. Above average retention and lace.
Aroma = 3.5 I get a big whiff of milk chocolate on the pour but that fades; roasted barley comes out highlighted with a grainy oatmeal aroma. It seemingly develops an off smell.
Taste = 3.75 A grainy oatmeal backbone is highlighted by milk chocolate notes throughout the middle of the taste. A mild bitter finish is complemented with roasted barley and mild coffee notes.
Feel = 3.75 Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth but not really creamy. Dry finish.
Drinkability = 4.25 Pretty drinkable stout.
Overall = 3.775 Eh, doesn’t really stand out anywhere here. It’s a decent oatmeal style dry stout but nothing more.

Pours a dark brown almost black like oil with similar viscosity and nice khaki colored head. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, oats, and some light toffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied stout here. Finishes with coffee and chocolate, slight roastiness as well.

12oz bottle, expiration date of 11/5/16. Pours nearly black with a medium sized khaki head. Smells of roasted malt, oats, and some char. The taste follows exactly; roasted malt, oats, and chart. Some mild bitterness. Weaker intensity smell and taste. Medium body and above average carbonation. Overall, it could use some more complexity/intensity, but it's a solid stout.

This one didn't have much character for a stout. Not a fan.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours midnight black with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of tan head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A rich and roasty dark malt forward aroma with hints of chocolate and coffee. Dark roasted barley malt with hints of dark chocolate, coffee beans, toast, smoke, biscuit, yeast, caramel, and oats. Sweet hints of molasses. Subtle hints of dark fruit and grassy hops. A pretty solid aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a rich and roasty dark malt driven taste with notes of chocolate and coffee. Dark roasted barley malt with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, toasted bread, biscuit, smoke, oats, caramel, and yeast. Sweet taste of molasses. Subtle undertones of dark fruit and earthy hops. A pretty solid stout taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Creamy, silky, and smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A very solid stout. Good chocolate and coffee flavor with a nice creamy feel.
