Served in a mug.

Appearance: I poured this brew pretty hard and with its opaque thin black-brown body little bubbles to it and weak head maybe 1/8".

Smell: light chocolate and molasses, honestly it smells good but not very potent like some other oatmeal stouts.

Taste: It comes off a light chocolate with slight bitterness. I do mean slight, it's easy to drink where the taste isn't too overwhelming. It has a almost like a cake taste too it where it makes you feel a mellow sweetness to it. Almost like a light brown sugar.

Mouth: light to medium carbonation, could be a little heavier and not feel as much as an Irish stout. After-taste is well finished but the stickiness is blah. Something missing.

Overall: Not a bad beer, but given how much better it could be there's much more out there to try especially given the price. I would buy again and split it with a friend, maybe your best solution. Salud!

Great new school schooner tattoo bottle art. Viscous dark brown rimmed black color with an insta-skim head.

Smells like dark roast coffee with a sweet dark sugary thing - molasses-esque?

Initially disappointing Starboard stars with coffee up front and a bright dark fruit finish in back. Kinda thin. For a 9.2% oatmeal stout I was expecting a heartier, more flavorful experience. Dark coffee, roast malt and some cacao bitterness emerge as this beer warms up. Though not as full as I'd like the creaminess of the mouthfeel is great. A little undercarbonated.

It's a beer.

Growler into a Duvel tulip. Thanks to TheLostGringo for sending this my way as an extra.

A: Black body with a thin but persistent head of tan froth that leaves light lace. Not bad.

S: Sweet, spicy, and slightly tart. Gingerbread and graham cracker sweetness balances against tart cherry rind and lemon zest. Sweet and sour, in a pleasant but seemingly unintentional way.

T: Follows the nose. Sweet and spicy malt up front with tart fruit behind. Yogurty lactic acid and light char on the finish. I don't dislike drinking it, but it's definitely not to style.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation. Slick. Ok.

O: I really don't dislike this beer at all - I love sours, and this is enjoyable in many ways - but it's an abysmal failure for the style.
