Unknown vintage; drank 4/30/15 @ the Yarchives.

Brown appearance. Tan head; a curtain of lace.

Peanut butter & cream nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Peanut butter & mild pumpkin flavors up front; a metallic, chalky finish. Booze notes emerged as this warmed.

Hopefully this one went bad? Tough to finish.

Got in a trade with GreenBayBA. 12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear nearly opaque dark brown color with a 2 finger dense and rocky khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted oats, and dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of molasses, licorice, dark fruit, smoke, char, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malts, cocoa nibs, light-moderate earthy hops, and light fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted oats, and dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of molasses, licorice, dark fruit, smoke, char, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, floral, grassy, peppery hop; and roast/char bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted oats, dark/brown bread, smoke, char, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, cocoa nibs, light-moderate earthy hops, and light fruity yeast flavors; with a great hop/roast bitter/sweet balance, and no acrid/astringent flavors after finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering hop/char bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and fairly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 6.3%. Overall this is a delicious oatmeal stout. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, cocoa nibs, light-moderate earthy hops, and light fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Nicely rich malt complexity, balancing earthy hops, and restrained yeast character. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

This beer smells like a Hershey's chocolate bar and tastes like a bit darker, more like bitter chocolate chip, mixed with a delicious maltiness that pricks the tongue devilishly. There is also a wholesome oatmeal flavor and consistency that makes this wash down like a filling dessert.

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.
