Tyranena is one of my favorite local breweries. This is one of the seasonal stouts they brew that I enjoy to drink. The aroma of chocolate is more than the flavor of chocolate, which is fine by me. It tastes and feels like a well bodied stout. A well rounded beer to enjoy with some music.

Looks the part--jet black and a thick light tan head. Nose is nice and roasty, rich chocolate. Flavor is dry roast malt, coffee-like character, nice under current of cocoa. Body is medium-full, nice dry/bitter finish. Very solid chocolate oatmeal stout. Really like the dry/roasty finish and very glad I've got 5 left!

12 oz bottle. Pour was deep dark with a slightly dark tan head. Aroma was strong with chocolate, light caramel, and some bread characters. Body was medium to full with a smooth oat character along with some more well blended chocolate malt and a nice caramel finish.

L - Very dark brown, lively, minimal head and lacing.
S - very strong but NOT overwhelming toasted oat and coffee scent makes it smell wonderful.
T - Seems to have a coffee flavor that to over power the chocolate and or oatmeal taste, but gives a nice roast stout flavor to it. Maybe can use more cocoa to help bring a balance between the coffee and chocolate.
F - warm thickness to it. Not to carbonated, smooth stout.
Overall - Great beer, could probably fool me if told me it was a coffee stout. Doesn't remind me of other oatmeal stouts i have tried, but regardless would still recommend to a friend.

Look- Pours black with little to no head, no lacing
Smell- Chocolates and malts, very nice
Taste- Same as the smell, chocolate and malts.
Feel- A little on the thin side, this is expected out of a 6.2% stout.
Overall- very solid. Nice Beer!

Dark brown pour develops a sizeable full inch of brown, tan head on the top. Would have been a higher score had there not been a lot of particulate all over it. Aroma hit the chocolate and cocao notes.

Oatmeal rocks here, smoothed out slappy hours all over this. Chocolate malt and cocoa distinctly noticed and differentiated. Great price, great format, easy drinking, plenty flavorful, not overly complex and better for it.
