2.86/5  rDev -23.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.5

Dark chocolate brown body with a thin, bubbly ring of head.

Aromas of crisp rice, chocolate malt-o-meal, and slight earthy aromas.

The flavor is mostly earthy, with dirt and breathing a musty basement. Very faint suggestions of both coffee and chocolate in equal strength at the finish line. Not a very solid performer.

Feel manages to hold onto a little creaminess as well as a tight carbonation that stings the palate and the belly. Roasty and oily finish.

Overall, not a stout I'll be revisiting again. It's far too dirty, definitely not chocolaty, or oaty. Yes, they may have used cocoa nibs in the boil, but it's far from concentrated enough to make it into the flavor profile.

Pours a silky black color with very little carbonation. Rich robust aromas and toasted malts. A much lighter stout on the tongue. Thin in texture, lots of oatmeal grain but more cocoa than chocolate flavors. Finishes very chalky on the taste buds. Quite interesting to say the least.

12oz bottle. Served in a snifter glass.

Pours a dark black body, creamy looking one finger offwhite head, above average retention, thin collar, bits of lacing. Smells of cocoa, a little bit of rubber, dark fruit, chocolate, mild roast. The rubber isn't really rubber per se, but it is more of a synthetic aroma if that makes sense. Flavour is milk chocolate, cocoa, touch of roast, grainy sweetness, mild synthetic tasting bitter chocolate milk finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit thin in terms of depth, moderately bitter cocoa finish. A sipper. Overall, a decent stout with a big chocolate character to it, but some of it is synthetic tasting enough that it's not the most natural for me to drink easily.

Good looking beer, huge head that stays. Smells pretty good too, coffee, oatmeal, but of chocolate. It's a bit thin and has a tinny taste on there. Look and smell were my favorite things about this beer but it's not bad

really dark. no head to speak of.

another malty, dark fruit kind of beer. not really getting the cocoa.

taste is a bit thin here. i was expecting something more - it's just a bit sweet and mild.

feel is a bit creamy and lightly carbonated. pretty tame.

not a bad beer, but doesn't live up to what i'd want from a good, oatmeal stout.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle.

A: Pours black as night with one finger of creamy mocha colored head. Head retains fairly quickly and leaves behind little lacing.

S: Big aromas of cocoa, dark chocolate, oats, caramel, and roasted malts. You also get some notes of roasted coffee, tobacco, and a faint smokiness.

T: Flavors of sweet roasted malts, chocolate, oatmeal, caramel and coffee greet you initially. You find flavors of oats, nuts, earthy hops, and some slight smokiness as well. Very pleasant and balanced.

M: On the lighter side of full bodied with a moderately high amount of carbonation. Incredibly smooth and creamy with a nice crisp finish.

O: A great oatmeal stout. It is very easy drinking for what it is and I enjoy this brew on the regular. It's a solid go to when your in the mood for a nice creamy stout.

Aroma is dark malts/malts, fruit and a hint of spring water. The flavor is dark/lightly roasted malts, fruit, mild dark fruit, a hint of chocolate and an acidic/tart/very slight heat in the finish.

Changed character with deep dish sausage pizza but before that it was a decent chocolate oatmeal stout.
