Got it on tap at the BTAH in NYC on 4-23-07. . . .
A: A Guinness-like pour from the nitro tap yielded a 1-finger creamy, tan head over a black body. Nice rings of lacing all the way down the glass.
S: Roasted malt, charcoal and smoke are immediately evident.
T: Like the nose -- roasted malt, burnt charcoal and milk chocolate. Finishes with a slightly bitter coffee-like flavor. Flavors aren't particularly strong, however.
M: Pretty smooth and appropriately carbonated. A little bit light in overall heft, however, and I usually find oatmeal stouts to be a little bit creamier.
D: Good. This one went down pretty easily.
Notes: the bartender at BTAH didn't know whether this was a porter or a stout (though she did pour it like you would pour a nitro-tap Guinness, so at some level she must've thought it was a stout or had been trained to pour it thusly). I didn't think it was strong enough to be a porter, so I was guessing at the time that it was an Irish Dry Stout. Knowing now that it was an Oatmeal Stout makes sense, but I usually find that Oatmeal Stouts are a little more creamy. Still, this was not bad at all, and I'd like to try it again knowing now what it is I'd be drinking. . . .

On cask at Rattle n Hum's Cask Anniversary Fest, NYC:
A: Near-black body with a wisp of head.
S/T: Very smokey with a good amount of nuttiness. On the taste, the smokiness takes on a meaty salami quality. Weird, but not ass off-putting as it sounds. The oatmeal quality is noticeable, giving it a bit of a different sweetness and toastiness.
M: Very slick, a bit too flat, but that may have had what to do with the cask being a few days old.
D: Great flavors, but smokiness and the slickness don't mesh well. I look forward to trying this on tap.
