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

Pours black with a thin foamy tan head that dissipates. No lacing, and looks thin. Smells of roasted coffee and chocolate, and has a soy like sweetness thing going on. Tastes similar, with a syrupy sweetness. Feel is very thin and watered down, low carbonation, and on the sweet side of the spectrum but not too sweet. Overall, I thought this was an OK oatmeal stout, but not one that I will be seeking out again. Cheers!

Dark brown, near black. Weak head with minimal lacing. Nice, roasted, rustic, subtly spicy aroma. Roasted malt palate with big licorice notes. Subtle molasses sweetness. Medium body. Slightly flat. Oat and wheat texture. Pretty standard but solid. I really enjoy the licorice notes.

16 ounce can poured into a pint glass

A: Has no carbonation, no head development, pours black with slight brown edges when held up to the light, no lacing.

A: Nice aroma of dark roasted malts and coffee, dark chocolate, oats, semi-sweet lactose aroma, smells promising.

T: Like the nose there are notes of dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee, moderate amount of bitterness, finish is smooth and creamy, aftertaste is of dark roasted malts and coffee.

M: Very low carbonation, beer is flat, finish has a semi-dry coffee like finish.

O: This is really disappointing, must have got a bad can, but there is no carbonation at all, beer is flat, nice aroma and a decent taste but the mouthfeel is definitely disappointing due to the lack of carbonation.

Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch tan head that dissipates to a tiny ring soon thereafter over a dark brown body. Nose of chocolate and slight roasted malts. Taste follow nose. A bit underwhelming. Feel is OK and overall, glad to try the Florida Toppling Goliath offering, also solidifying my distaste for contract brewing. Boom!

This pours pitch black with a nice tan head. Smells of chocolate, tastes of chocolate and coffee. Medium feel. One of the better oatmeal stouts I've had. Just a tad better than the Schlafly oatmeal stout imo. Special thanks to my friend, Gary S. for bringing this over.
