By far, the best 3 Daughters offering I've had to date...

This has to be the tastiest oatmeal stout I've experienced, in fact, this is what I always imagined an oatmeal stout should taste. The look starts out very promising - dark, tan head, and good lacing. The smell is mostly malty, I really can't pull out any of the oatmeal, coffee, or chocolate touted on the can. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, lightly carbonated, and silky smooth. All of this leading into a complex brew blending distinct tangy notes of coffee, the simple taste of oatmeal, and just enough of a touch of sweetness of chocolate - truly amazing craft (IMHO). This brewer doesn't get enough love locally, but keep on putting beers like these and folks will notice.

A: Dark brown almost opaque but not quite, big khaki colored head, spotty lacing

S: Chocolate, coffee, bread

T: A little sweetness, coffee, bitterness. I really expected more sweetness with the coffee and such dark color but it was a little lacking in the sweetness for me.

M: Medium to light

O: I was expecting a much sweeter from such a dark beer. It had some good qualities but just not my favorite.

Another new to me Flo-Rida beer, let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a nice toasted malt aroma. Pours into a handy nonic pint to an opaque jet black with a creamy tan head. On the taste this brew has a nice mouthfeel up front, taste is roasted malt some smokiness, coffee and a balanced hopping that doesn't cut the sweetness. Aftertaste is both bitter and sweet but balanced between the two. A very soild stout, convenient in the can form. I will obtain again.

Sensible, somber, subtle, yet surly- the British-style oatmeal stout is often lost on the tastebuds of more trend-seeking craft beer imbibers, its nice to see that the style is alive and well in the capable hands of 3 Daughters Brewing.

Stern Line Stout draws the senses close with its robust scent of coffee, cocoa, molasses, light fruit and faint butterscotch. Underneath, a rich and lathery dark body presents a coffee-like appearance. Its taste is sweet with those molasses flavors along with a secondary blend of coffee, dark chocolate, nuttiness, cream and cola.

The middle palate saturates with those molasses, caramel, toffee and cola sweetnesses. As sweetness relaxes, the roastiness rises, bringing a toasty, roasty and earthy taste of straight black coffee, bittersweet chocolate, roasting walnut, burnt toast and a whimsical notion of campfire.

Full but somber, the beer's creamy roast is a testament to high roast and oat creaminess. Its long bitter linger is partially of roasted bite but also of the broad woodsy bitterness of hops. Hints of grilled fruit, tobacco and fig add those Brittish complexities but are very light. Only the mild astringency of roast gives a light push into a harshness in finish.

Blackish with hints of red in color. Not as much head as I would hope for (sshhhh) but a little bit of frothy tan cap.

Aroma is pretty weak. Some charred malt, faint chocolate.

Tastes better, but nothing jumps out. Slightly bitter chocolate, heavily roasted, but not real ashy malts, some noticeable oats. Light lingering bitterness.

The oats definitely help the body by giving it a chewy feel, but it still seems a bit flat.

This beer is quite drinkable and good overall, but lacking in a lot of ways too.

Ugh, no. I've found the same issue turning me off in everything I've tried from this brewery. There's something underneath that's just... off. Something subtle tastes rotten and makes me not want to finish the can. Feel is watery, balance is nonexistent.
You ever see the huge person out in public in spandex, wearing so much perfume you can smell them across the street? You ever wonder "Where are your friends to tell you this is not ok??" Well that's what this brewery makes me feel every time. Raise your bar, guys. Pass a few taste tests before you decide to mass produce something.

Dark color stout with light passing through.Has a light colored head on top. Has a strong smell of coffee and chocolate. Tastes just like how it smells, a sweet coffee stout.

Pours a nice dark brown color with khaki colored head. Roasted malts, chocolate, some oats, and a little coffee note on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes with cocoa and roast.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a Belgian tulip. Canned on 12/30/15.

Look: Poured into the glass with a moderate amount of carbonation, and a dark black body with a 1/2 fingers worth of head. Quickly dissipated and left no lacing in the glass.

Smell: Chocolate, espresso and roast.

Taste: Slightly muted roasted malts, chocolate, coffee.

Mouthfeel: Light and unassuming; oats add to the smoothness and there isn't enough carbonation, in my opinion.

Overall: This is easy to drink, close enough to have some coffee milk with a little chocolate thrown in, to almost make it chug-worthy. The abv is so low (5.2%) it's easy to drink more than one or two of these at a time. I think this might benefit from a higher abv and some more carbonation to make this one really good.
