Tyranena Down 'N Dirty Chocolate Oatmeal Stout.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a CBS snifter. Served chilled...

A) Deep dark brown... A nice little tan head, that settles down to wispy patches. Some traction on the snifter here.

S) A good amount of roasted malt, some chocolate, and a little coffee with a splash of cream.

T) The flavor also provided a whole lot of roast, just a little chocolate. You get the oatmeal. I found this to be pretty bitter on the backend. I would have like a little more sweetness in the flavor.

M) Medium body with mild carbonation. Pretty smooth feel, but could have been a little more supple.

O) Pretty good.... I could see how this would do well with some barrel aging. Too bad I didn't score a bottle.

Had from bottle poured into cigar city snifter
pours slight head and fairly dark
smell is overpowering heavy chcolate
which the taste follows it is nice smooth
and a medium body mouthfeel not thin and not thick just a nice
representation of the style and once again it is heavy chcolate but not overly sweet
this is nice way to end the night with something good and easy drinking
would definitely get again

Pours seal brown with a good finger of khaki foam. Aroma smells of roasted black coffee, mild chocolate, and a hint of what almost smells like salt (think salted chocolate). Taste is comparable to the nose, with astringent black coffee and some bittersweet chocolate. The malt is roasted to nearly burnt, which brings a little too much bitterness to the table. Perhaps if there was a stronger milk chocolate presence to balance, it would be more enjoyable. There's also some hop bitterness lurking beneath the coffee bitterness that comes through more in the finish. Even a touch of alcohol manifests as the beer warms. The oatmeal successfully adds a creamy, chewy mouthfeel that is probably the highlight of this brew.

Overall, this is a decent oatmeal stout that tends too strongly to the bitter side for me to truly enjoy it as well as I'd like.

(Served in a snifter)
A- This beer pours a jet black body with a creamy light tan head that last as a thick ring.

S- The dark roasted malt is earthy with chocolate malt grown and a Sumatra roasted coffee coming through in the finish. There is a fresh raw grain aroma and some green hop aromas that come through as it opens up.

T- The dark roasted black malt has a slight chalk quality to it with some nice bakers chocolate notes and a touch of oats and tartness in the finish. Green woody hops are light but present in the finish.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a chewy texture and no real alcohol heat noticed.

O- The wonderful dry stout has a nice complex roasted profile that is balanced by very nice coffee and chocolate flavors aswell. This is a big beer but it is very easy to drink.
