A: Black with a light brown head. Decent lacing

S: Dark roasted malts with some sweetness. Smells like a lactose like sweetness. Some nutty characteristics and a bit of chocolate and vanilla as well.

T: Nice blend of roasted malts and a bit of chocolate sweetness. A bit of coffee and a small dose of hops come through as well.

M: Medium to lighter body. Smooth and a bit creamy. Lower carbonation.

O: Good drinkability. Well done, not my favorite oatmeal stout, but better than average.

Serving type: growler

On tap at the brewpub. Poured into a standard shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Dark black with a little bit of brown color coming through. Solid three fingers of creamy tan head with good retention and a nice froth. Good amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: Dark roasted malts with some chocolate, nuts, oats, milk, and a little coffee. A fairly strong aroma of smoke mixes in with the chocolate. Smells very roasty, robust, and fairly sweet.

Taste: Sweet dark roasted malts up front with some good notes of chocolate, oats, nuts, milk, subtle coffee and lactose. A pretty noticeable taste of smoke lingers around making this taste like a cross between an Oatmeal Stout and Baltic Porter. Very nice.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Very creamy, lightly sweet and syrupy, and very smooth. Sweet but finishes moderately dry.

Overall: A very solid oatmeal stout. The smoke and milk flavors add a nice touch.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Espresso black, with a cappuccino head, and very nice intricate lacing.

S: Bitter, dark chocolate and deep espresso notes.

T: Dark chocolate and espresso. Very sweet malt backbone. Has a roasted bitter malt finish. This could use a little more of a hop kick to cut the sweetness of the malts.

M: Light and pleasant for an oatmeal stout. Very drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap
