look: 4.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours dark brown, scant finger of tan head settles to a persistent glaze.

Aroma is vague malt, not much going on.

Flavor is sweet and chocolatey. Some grassiness, roast and kahluha sneak in.

Medium mouthfeel is appropriate for the style.

Very nice, tidy stout. Really as sweet as a milk stout, which tends to make the chocolate take a back seat... presents more like tootsie roll.

It pours a rich dark black with a small tan head that soon goes to a nice ring around the glass. The smell is mildly chocolate with a faint hint of roasted coffee. To be honest not much of smell to it at all. The taste is where I pick up the chocolate and is very smooth ( like a milk chocolate bar) you get a mild bit of a roasted coffee to the end of a sip. The body is medium but easy drinking. I would say a very easy drinking offering maybe a bit of a fall drink around a fire pit instead of after cutting grass.

This beer pours very dark with a frothy, 1 finger, tan head. The nose is is interesting. It doesnt really smell like chocolate. It almost smells like root beer. Maybe I'm wrong, but not chocolate.
The taste is well, the nose lied. I do get a nice, rich chocolate taste. It is bold. It also has a slight coffee flavor.
It isn't watery, and fairly full bodied.
Delicious pick up from Wisconsin.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Deep chocolate brown with a luscious, beautiful head of 2 fingers. The head is beige and very stable. Wonderful creamy lace on the sides.

Smells of Hershey bar, flaked oatmeal, vanilla, hazelnut, coffee, Pirouline wafers. It's so incredibly decadent.

Flavor is more of the same - vanilla, peanuts, flavors like a lovely cappucino rolled wafer with hints of coffee and cream. Some nuttiness and peanut skin follow. Chocolate raspberry.

Feel is medium to thick, a mild carbonation and a roasted finish.

Overall, an 83 doesn't cut it in my opinion. This beer is totally dessert worthy and it's really delicious.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-tan color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of chocolate, tootsie roll, sweet malt, slight oatmeal, hint of alcohol, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of an Oatmeal Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a slight bitterness. Tastes of chocolate, tootsie roll, sweet malt, slight oatmeal, hint of yeast, hint of pale malt, hint of alcohol, and a hint of hop. Overall, decent appearance, the tootsie roll flavors are disappointing, good complexity, but an average Oatmeal.

Sand Creek Oscar's Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, 4.5% ABV, 30 IBU. Pours thin and black, with three finger tan head. Nose is sweet chocolate, slight chocolate taste with moderate coffee bitterness. Mouthfeel is not up to expectations for an oatmeal stout, and given only a slight chocolate taste the overall rating is only good. With the other decent ones on the market, I'm thankful I only got a single.
