On draft at the brewery in Minneapolis. Color is pitch black like dark chocolate. Aroma is a bit of sweet cocoa. Taste sweet, chocolate, coffee, and milky like a Thai iced coffee. Very drinkable especially at 5.4%. Overall, highly enjoyable but 16 oz could be a bit much.

On-tap at the brewpub on 21 November 2013. I've had more of Town Hall's seasonals and rarities, so I'm working my way through their regular line-up. A chilly snowy day calls for a stout.

Pours black, as it should given the name. Brought with one finger of medium-dark tan head. Good retention, nice lacing.

Smell is faint. Smooth and sweet from the oats, a touch of dark roast. It's served too cold to really let the smells out.

Taste is excellent. Deep and rich, with char and dark-roasted coffee. The oats add a delicate sweetness that balances out the bitter in the finish.

Feel is good. Relatively light for a stout, and doesn't have that amazing creaminess that some oatmeal stouts have. But those are quibbles.

A stellar oatmeal stout. Smooth, creamy, deeply roasty. Very nice.
