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.

Serving type: on-tap
