Truly a pitch black body, a few fingers of fluffy khaki head recede to a thin cap that goes on to retain from start to finish.

Loads of fresh oatmeal, milk chocolate, some faint dry flaky hops, fresh cream, some brown ale characteristics.

Super smooth and velvety, oatmeal, slightly bitter chocolate... incredibly smooth and easy to drink. I think this growler’s gettin’ kicked tonight no problem.

Serving type: growler

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
